Tips for Buying a Water Glass Pipe
If you’re buying your first glass water pipe, it’s normal to find the task daunting. With so many options out there, knowing where to start can be difficult. But of course, with a few basic tips, it can become easier as you learn your way around.
For starters, what is your preferred design or style? You’ll find a wide variety out there, such as beaker, straight tube and recycler.
Beaker Water Pipes
This design offers more volume and less dense smoke, leading to bigger rips that are also more difficult to clear. Beaker water pipes are more stable than any other types because the base is wider and the part that holds water is also bigger. Due to the width, however, they can be more difficult to clean.
Straight tube glass water pipes create a dense but easy-to-clear smoke. This gives you a more efficient way of smoking, with the smoke rising upwards in the tube, requiring little work from you, and the drag is quite minimal drag as well. But since their bases are narrower, you have to be careful not to tip them over.
Because of their ability to recycle water, recyclers are usually used for concentrates. If you’re a newbie user of glass water pipes, you should go for straight tubes or beaker pipes.
Why is it necessary to consider the glass water pipes’ thickness? The thicker the glass, the longer the pipe will probably last. But you also need to consider the immediate environment where you will put the glass water pipe. Are you going to put it in just one spot? If so, thickness may not be that crucial. But if you plan to take the glass water pipe to different places, get a thickness at least 3.55mm.
Picking a Percolator
When it comes to percolators, there are so many options as well. But of course, not all of them are created equal. There are some things you should look into before you choose which one is right for you. The first factor is the smoothness that it can achieve after filtration. Next is the drag you get from smoking through the holes. If you’re a glass water pipe newbie, a percolator is not necessary, though it would be a nice accessory. But note that the chamber can become a lot more difficult to clean if you have too many percolators.
There could be nuances with each type of glass water pipe out there, so if you’re not sure what to buy, it would help to shop with someone who has expert knowledge. This will make sure that you end up with just the right pipe and experience.
