The availability of options when it comes to choosing the perfect bong can be quite tricky for the limitless options that one has access to. If you've used a couple of bongs in your life, you might've heard of the term percolator bongs but are you aware of their purpose?

 

Percolator, often referred to as a perc, delivers cooler and smoother hits. It subdues the harshness of the hits and is designed to diffuse the hot smoke inside the chamber through the water. Percolators are available in a wide range of choices, each with its own set of advantages or disadvantages.

 

Percolators sometimes called 'water pipes' are a kind of glass bongs that make the process of smoking an easier one while diffusing the cannabis smoke.

 

You might wonder what kind of difference do percolators offer to your smoking experience and how crucial they actually are. Well, let's get straight away to that point.

 

Percolator Bongs: What is it?

 

Percolators appear quite complicated, however, they are designed to make it easier for you to smoke. They are located at the base of the bong or the tube. A perc is a small contraption which enables water to pass through creating a filter. As you inhale from a percolator bong, the smoke will be diffused into bubbles creating a classic bong rip sound. The bubbles expand the surface area enabling the smoke to travel inside and cool down while impurities are filtered. This procedure enables more bong rips and less coughing.

 

If you find bongs to be harsh on your throats then percolator bongs are perfect for you. Not to mention this particular smoking accessory will prove cost effective in the long run.

 

What are the different kinds of percolators that are available?

 

Percolator Bongs are available in a myriad of shapes and sizes. You'll find some bongs with multiple percs that provide enhanced smoking experience. You can also upgrade your bong with detached ash catchers featuring various percs.

 

  • Tree -

 

You can easily recognise a tree percolator that has multiple rods connected at the top resembling a tree limb. Air passes from the central tube through the rods and settles at the bottom, diffusing the bubbles inside the bong. A tree percolator offers maximum filtration and is a little delicate in comparison to the rest.

 

  • Inline -

 

An inline percolator has multiple slits on a horizontal tube. More the number of slits, the better the percolation within the bong. It is located at the base of the bong.

 

  • Showerhead -

 

Designed like a showerhead this is a popular choice of percolator. You will find holes or slits on the bottom of a vertical tube. The showerhead percolator is located at the neck of the bong.

 

  • Diffused Downstem -

 

A diffused downstem improves the flow of air to the base of the piece and has several slits at the bottom.

 

  • Honeycomb -

 

One of the most sought after percolators is the honeycomb. It features flat discs with a bunch of holes giving it the name. Honeycomb percolators are found in straight tube bongs where the studded flat discs are stacked one above the other creating additional chambers for the smoke to pass through.

 

  • Fritted Disc -

 

A more powerful percolator than the honeycomb is the fritted disc. It is designed using coarse glass particles bonded together creating a million small holes and is available in ball, disc or other shapes.

 

  • Turbine -

 

It features slabs of glass with slitted edges and is paired with honeycomb percolators.
