What is a percolator bong?

A percolator bong, also known as a perc bong, is a type of water pipe used for smoking tobacco or other herbs. It works by passing smoke through water, which cools and filters it before it is inhaled.

What makes percolator bongs different to water pipes?

What sets percolator bongs apart from other water pipes is their use of a percolator, which is a small, additional chamber that sits inside the main body of the bong. The percolator usually contains one or more small holes or slits, which create a diffusion effect as the smoke passes through them. This diffusion breaks up the smoke into smaller bubbles, increasing the surface area of the smoke that comes into contact with the water, which leads to further cooling and filtration.

Are percolator bongs better than water pipes?

Percolator bongs offer several advantages over traditional water pipes. They produce smoother hits with less harshness and can filter out more harmful toxins from the smoke. They also allow for a more customizable smoking experience, as users can choose from different types of percolators and adjust the water level to suit their preferences. However, percolator bongs can be more expensive and harder to clean than other types of water pipes, and may be more fragile due to their complex designs.

Is a bong with a percolator better than without?

Benefits of using a bong with a percolator include: Smoother hits: The percolator helps to break up the smoke, which can make it easier to inhale without causing irritation or coughing. Cooler smoke: As the smoke passes through the percolator, it is cooled down, which can make the smoke less harsh on your throat and lungs. Better filtration: The percolator helps to filter out more impurities from the smoke, which can result in a cleaner, smoother hit. More flavorful hits: By cooling down and filtering the smoke, a percolator can enhance the taste of your herb or concentrate, allowing you to enjoy more of its natural flavor.

What is the point of a percolator on a bong?

The main point of a percolator on a bong is to filter and cool down the smoke, resulting in a smoother and less harsh hit. When you inhale from a bong without a percolator, the smoke travels through the water in the base of the bong, which cools it down slightly and filters out some of the larger particles. However, the smoke can still be hot and harsh, and may cause coughing or irritation. A percolator helps to break up the smoke into smaller particles as it passes through, creating more surface area for the smoke to interact with the water. This process cools down the smoke further, and the percolator also filters out more impurities from the smoke. This can result in a smoother and more flavorful hit, making it easier and more enjoyable to inhale.

Glass Percolator Bongs

Having identified a European market need for percolator bongs, which originated in the Far East but are now used much more globally, Shiva have realised an intention to satisfy that market need by stocking a wide variety of bongs, from different manufacturers. Since the smoke from tobacco or other herbal substances is filtered through water in the bong, thus removing some toxins, bongs are recognised to be a healthier way of obtaining pleasure from smoking.

A large range of different types and brands of bong are stocked by Shiva, and the range of percolator bongs consists of more than 30 different items having features that cater for the requirements of all smokers. The main difference between percolator bongs and other types of bong is that one or more additional small tubes are contained in a chamber in the body of the bong, providing extra filtering of the smoke.

The percolator bongs in the Shiva range are all manufactured in glass. There is a wide variety of colours and sizes in the range and several have the additional feature of an ice shelf for greater filtering and faster cooling of the smoke. According to personal choice, different bongs have different sizes of water bubble, allowing varying amounts of filtering. The design and colouring of the percolator bongs is aesthetically attractive, so when not in use they do not look out of place as beautiful glassware ornaments, and would undoubtedly be the subject of inquisitive comments from your visitors. This ornamental quality does not detract in any way from the functionality of the bong, and you are unlikely to forget its main purpose.

When buying a bong it is possible to purchase at the same time the necessary screens, cleaning tools, cleaning products and spare hemp.
