When venturing out to find a percolator bong for sale you might notice things aren’t as straight forward as the good old days, not only are you greeted with a choice between materials but also modifications such as precoolers, additions such as percolators and even oil domes for the new concentrates era!
Different Types of Percolator Bongs
It can get very confusing for a newcomer, so I’ve put together this guide on percolator bongs to help people understand what a percolator does and how they work.
There are so many different types of percolators available, but the most popular types of percolators are:
- Tree Percolator
- Inline Diffuser
- Honeycomb Disc
- Shower Percolator
Why do Bongs have Percolators and what are the benefits
The purpose of a percolator is to smooth and further cool down the smoke, each percolator does this in a slightly different way. You can find these percolator bongs at nearly any bong outlet online. Honeycombs force the smoke to split into hundreds of separate sections as it passes through the disc. The other types of percs do this too but normally the smoke only gets split into around ten different sections, but the benefit of the others is the extra surface area.
With tree and shower percolators you can normally fill them up with water, so a long with the percolator further cooling the smoke you get an extra mini water chamber, which helps to remove even more tars from your smoke. Also with these two types of percs, the smoke has to pass over a greater surface area of the glass, so if your water pipe has ice inside you will notice the surface area of the glass is a lower temperature than normal, helping to cool the smoke even more!
Hey Mister! Tell me more!
Woah, slow down there Jimmy. Ok, well currently for sale there are Drums, Frits, Turbine Discs, Spiral Diffusers and Domes. There is no limit to the intricate designs glower blowers are coming out with these days, which explains why they are getting so popular these days. Even old retired workers are using bongs! Percolators are not just found in bongs, but also accessories such as precoolers. A precooler is an additional water chamber that uses a glass on glass joint to connect to the bong, they often incorporate percolators inside their water chamber, painted in every colour you can imagine. They are a great way to personalize your bong while bringing the user a way cooler smoke.
