Bubblers: A Fascinating Dive into Their Mechanics 

Bubblers are versatile and compact smoking devices. They are a perfect blend of the convenience of a handheld pipe and the benefits of water filtration. These portable smoking devices deliver a smoother and more enjoyable smoking experience. 

But have you wondered, how these devices would be working? If yes, then this blog will solve all that mystery in your head. Read ahead to know more about bubblers and how they work. 

What are Bubblers? 

Bubblers are like the best of both worlds. They represent a unique combination of pipes and water bings. Bubblers mainly consist of a bowl that holds your weed, a downstem that extends to the water chamber, and a mouthpiece to inhale. 

While bubblers come in all shapes and sizes, their primary objective remains the same: to filter and cool the smoke using water. 

How do Bubblers Work? 

Mentioned below are step-wise processes describing how a bubbler works. 

1. Water filtration 

The primary function of a bubbler is to filter the smoke by passing it through the water. Hence, as the user inhales through the mouthpiece, the smoke is drawn down the downstem towards the water chamber. During this process, the smoke interacts with the water. This helps trap impurities ash, tar, and other unwanted particles. 

2. Cooling effect 

In addition to filtration, bubblers also offer a cooling effect. The initially hot smoke from burning reaches the water which further cools it down. This significant temperature reduction reduces the harshness of the smoke. Thus, on smoking from a bubbler, you don’t feel any irritation in your throat and lungs. 

3. Bubbles and percolation 

As the smoke travels through the water chamber, it creates bubbles and undergoes percolation. Bubblers are equipped with various percolators, such as diffusers or showerhead percs. These break down the smoke into smaller bubbles. As a result, the process enhances filtration by increasing the surface area of the smoke and greater interaction with water. 

4. Inhalation and clearance 

When using a bubbler, you need to inhale through the mouthpiece and draw the smoke up. This way, the smoke will pass through the downstem and travel to your lungs via the mouth. Further, to clear the remaining smoke in the chamber, you either need to remove the bowl or release the carb (if applicable). This will allow fresh air to enter the chamber pushing residual smoke out through the mouthpiece. 

Lastly, to ensure the efficiency of your bubbler, make sure to clean it regularly. You can visit our website Puff 21 for more guidance.
