What Is A Bubbler Pipe?
A bubbler functions like a bong but looks and feels more like a hand pipe. It’s basically a hand pipe with water filtration. The water helps to cool your smoke or vapor and makes your smoking session a more enjoyable experience.
Bubbler vs Bong
A bubbler is much easier to handle than a bong due to its size. Bongs are more for table top use while a bubbler can be held in the hand while you smoke out of it. Bubblers are easier to conceal and store away when you need to be discreet. Unlike a bong, you can pack a bubbler in your day pack or purse when you leave the house.
How To Use a Bubbler Pipe
Bubblers are a pretty easy pipe to use. First, fill your bubbler with the appropriate amount of water. This will vary between pipes but generally you want to add enough water to cover the percolation tube. You can add water either through the mouthpiece or the carb hole.
It is a good idea to test the water level in your pipe by covering the carb hole and inhaling before lighting up. If you get splashback, then you have added too much water and you should drain some out from the carb hole. If it doesn’t bubble the whole time you inhale then there is not enough water and you should add some.
Pack the bowl with your favorite herbs, light up and enjoy. When you are done, drain the water out of the pipe and rinse it thoroughly. Rinsing it out after each use will keep it cleaner for much longer.
Types of Bubblers
Bubblers come in a few different styles. Read below to learn more about them.
Hammer Bubbler - This bubbler is longer than it is tall with a long stem and an elongated bowl that holds water in the bottom. Features a built in bowl with a carb hole on the side of the pipe. Keeping the same general shape and function, hammers come in an endless variety of worked glass designs and stunning colors.
Sherlock Bubbler - These water-filtered pipes are taller than they are long and one of the more common styles you will see in a head shop. Functions the same as a hammer bubbler and about the same size.
Double Bubbler - Instead of a single perc chamber a double bubbler has two. This extra chamber provides double the water filtration for an even smoother hit. Double bubblers can also be a pipe that two people can smoke from at the same time featuring 2 mouthpieces.
Mini Bubbler (Blunt Bubblers) - As made famous by MJ Arsenal, these mini sized bubblers stand just a few inches tall and are designed to hold your favorite rolled creations including blunts, joints and pre rolled cones. The bubbler action cools and mellows the smoke from your blunts before you inhale.
Cartridge Vape Bubbler - Looks a lot like a dab rig but with the connection point oriented downwards. These bubblers are made so you can filter the vapor from your dab pen or cartridge vape.
