What is a Percolator Bong

As you well know, if you ask most people what they like to smoke out of, most of them will say a bong. But notice I didn’t say all. That’s because even though the majority of people favor bongs, there are still many out there who would rather smoke from a pipe or a joint. Why is that?

This is because some people have had unpleasant experiences with bongs. Either the hits are too harsh for them, or maybe they seem to always get water in their mouth or on their lips which I know we’ve all been there. What I also know is that most people who don’t like using bongs, having tried using a bong with percs. So what is a percolator bong?

A percolator bong is a bong that comes with an attachment (or perc) installed in it to bring a more smooth, and cleaner hit. Have you ever seen those really odd shaped bongs? Or bongs that have multiple pieces on the inside almost looking like the smoke would be going through a maze? Those are most likely percolator bongs.

Benefits of Using Percolator Bongs

Unlike that big drawer in your house that doesn’t open and literally has no purpose, most of the time every little piece in your bong will play a crucial role in making your hit the best it could be.

Fortunately for you, there are more perks of using one of these masterpieces other than just a smooth hit:

  1. Filters Smoke Much Better
  2. Keeps Your Bong Cleaner (I’ll explain)
  3. Helps You Take Bigger Hits (More effective)

Bongs are the “healthiest” option in regards to what’s the best thing to smoke from. That’s because the water filters out the harmful toxins and ash in the bong before you inhale it. When you take a hit from a pipe or from a joint, you lose that benefit.

Another added perk to using these kinds of bongs is that even with a nice fresh bowl, if your bong isn’t cleaned, after a while you’ll start to notice it not hitting very well. With percolator bongs, or any bong for that matter, the cleaner your bong the better the hit. Period.

In my opinion, you should clean your bong once every 2 days AT LEAST, especially if you’re a daily smoker. Trust me if you don’t, then the bong will hit much different than when you first bought it, and you always want the best hit possible right? So in a way it kind of forces you to keep it clean, which is a good thing.

And obviously, if your bong is fairly clean, you’re able to take much bigger hits than usual because the airway won’t be clogged anymore, that plus the percolator adding extra filtration, you can hit it for as long as you want and you will still get a nice smooth rip every time.
