Bubblers have been around for quite years, but they are still one of the coolest and most innovative ways of smoking out there. What makes glass bubblers so unique is their combination of two different existing smoking devices. Bubblers borrow aspects from both hand pipes and weed bongs / glass water pipes to generate a glass piece that takes the best attributes from each. Bubbler pipes offer portable water pipe function and filtration in the convenience and portability of a standard hand pipe. Plus, a glass bubbler is versatile and can just as easily function as a dry pipe - just don’t add water!  We offer a large selection of bubbler bongs in various styles and materials such as borosilicate glass and silicone.

Smoking a bubbler water pipe is an interesting and cool way of consuming legal herbs. Many people think that a bubbler is technically a bong as well, but we often consider them a separate category of water pipe. This is different in many ways and has its own unique set of benefits which are not available in a bong because of it's diffusion, percs, and size.

What is a bubbler pipe?

A bubbler is a type of water pipe that is a smaller, portable version of a bong. Bubblers are hand pipes that feature a chamber with a percolator or diffuser. When dry herbs are packed and ignited, the smoke flows down the stem and through the water, where is is filtered and cooled. This offers a much smoother and cooler than than traditional dry hand pipes. Bubblers are not as big or offer as intense filtration as a bong but are much smaller and far more portable.

    Types of Bubblers

    • All bubblers have a few things in common.
    • One: they all have a bowl, the part where you place the herb you are smoking. Bowls may differ in size, but all bubbler pipes have one.

    Two: all bubblers have a water chamber. Again, their sizes may differ (usually they are designed to be relatively proportionate to the bowl size, stem length and stem diameter). Three: all bubblers have a stem with an opening at the end. The stem is the part the smoke travels up after it has been filtered through the water.

    As long as those three parts are present, bubblers can come in diverse forms, shapes and designs. Some of them look so peculiar that a novice wouldn’t even be able to call what it is. Many water pipes are hand-blown and fashioned into objects, animals or abstract, artistic shapes. A novice may mistake it as mere artwork and not understand its function at all.

    However, at their core, they all rely on the same principle: using water as a means for filtering smoke. Smoke that passes through water will deposit debris and larger molecules into the water. What is actually inhaled at the end is steam or vapor, not actual smoke. The vapor contains most of the same factors as the herb being used, but without the bigger particles and the overall harshness of smoke. The vapor is smoother and has a cleaner flavor. The water also acts as coolant so that the smoke you inhale isn’t hot.

    Bubblers come in six basic types. Each one has its own particular advantages, and you’ll probably find yourself gravitating toward one particular style.

    • Hammer Bubblers - Hammer bubblers get their name from the stand that holds them up. The mouthpiece and the bottom of the chamber sit flat on the surface with the neck leading diagonally upwards to connect to the top of the chamber.
    • Sherlock Bubbler - The Sherlock bubbler resembles a Sherlock pipe and hence the name. It is more like a hammer bubbler, only that the stem is curved into an S shape.
    • Pendant Bubbler - This bubbler type is a bit smaller. It is designed with a small hole or ring so that it can be put on a string or necklace and worn around the neck. It offers ultimate convenience.
    • Sidecar Bubbler - This bubbler type features a stem and a mouthpiece attached to the side of the water chamber. It was designed to solve the issue of water splash guard, something that is common with the Sherlock and hammer bubblers.
    • Double Bubblers / Dual Percolator - The double bubblers consist of two chambers instead of one.  This allows the smoke to filter twice, giving you a flavor that is extra-clean, and smooth.

    Concentrate Bubbler - This type of bubbler is explicitly designed for smoking essential oils and concentrates rather than dry herb.

    Advantages of Bubblers

    • Portable - Bubblers are portable and can be carried just anywhere discreetly which causing any commotion. But there is a need to handle them with care especially the glass models.

    More convenient - Bubblers offer smokers with a smooth and filtered hit of creamy smoke that has processed in both a percolator and water chamber. They can, in this case, be viewed as portable dab rig.Bubblers bring together the convenience and ease-of-use of a standard glass pipe combined with a smooth smoking experience of a bong. These devices are easy to use and lighter.
