The Perfect Percolator: Why Are Percolator Bongs Better?

Are you looking for the best water bong and don’t want to choose the wrong kind? How do you know what type of bong will work for you?

The global legal marijuana market was over 9 billion US dollars in 2020. Many adults love to smoke it and a glass bong is a great way to ensure a better smoking experience.

There’s a wide variety of glass bongs available. If you’re wondering if percolator bongs are a better choice here’s a guide to help you make your decision.

Why Choose a Percolator Bong

If you are smoking your weed using a gravity bong, you already know it gives you a better smoking experience. The smoke is much smoother when you use a glass bong. 

A percolator bong goes one step further by cooling the smoke. That allows you to get a better pull with less irritation of your throat and lungs. These bongs need more frequent use of a bong cleaner.

How Is a Percolator Bong Different?

A percolator bong has an extra water chamber on it. They come in different shapes and sizes. The most common shape is a dome. The percolator part is usually found in the tube of your glass bong.

The percolator bong cools the smoke in two different ways. First, the smoke makes contact with extra water, which has a cooling effect.

The pressure in the percolator breaks the smoke down into little bubbles. That cools the smoke again, as the water is in contact with a greater surface area of the smoke.

Types of Percolator Bongs

There are many different types of percolator bongs for sale. Each design is an attempt to improve the cooling features of the percolator water pipe. There’s a certain aesthetic appeal to the design as well.

Tree percolators diffuse the smoke through a group of rods that resemble tree limbs.  Air comes up through the main tube and then goes down through the rods, percolating into the water.

Honeycomb percolator bongs have small disks filled with holes, like a honeycomb. These small holes diffuse and divide the smoke that passes through them. Honeycomb bongs have the advantage of zero drag and great flavor.

Showerhead bongs have a submerged showerhead. That produces hundreds of tiny bubbles to cool and filter the smoke.

Fritted disk percolators take it one step further. They’re made up of coarse glass particles bonded together to create a multitude of tiny holes.

Turbine percolators offer a different aesthetic. The shape forces water to go up the sides of the pipe. It filters and creates incredible visuals.
