A bong or water pipe is most often a larger piece (usually 9+ inches) that has a straight or beaker bottom that you fill partially with water. Somewhere towards the bottom of the glass pipe there is a hole of varying sizes, most commonly 14mm and 18mm. This allows for a down-stem and a bowl. You then fill the bowl with your smoking material. Next, light the bowl and inhale while the smoke flows through the downstem, is diffused by the water and fills the bottom & chamber of the pipe. Experienced users may choose to inhale until the smoke fills the entire bottom and chamber of the glass water pipe. Some water pipes have a carburetor, or hole, to control the airflow through the pipe. In water pipes without carburetors, the airflow is controlled by removing and reinserting the bowl.
Downstem- Down-stems are historically straight cylindrical tubes that are inserted into a water pipe. The water pipe may be what is classified as a “straight tube” or “beaker bottom”, but the downstem is inserted into the joint, and then you attach a male bowl. You should know that not all water pipes require a downstem, especially pipes made for concentrates.
Bowl- Simply stated, the bowl is where you place your material to burn. Bowls come in various sizes including 14mm & 18mm as well as having either a male or female joint. Most commonly water pipes come with a bowl with a male joint. Bowls can be made out of glass, metal, wood, ceramic or stone.
Beaker Bottom- A beaker bottom is similar to what a scientific beaker looks like, but the straight tube chamber is blown together with the beaker bottom. Pipes with a beaker bottom generally provide a larger capacity and smooth, easy hits due to the increased water diffusion coupled with decreased internal diffusion.
Ice Pinch- An ice pinch is usually located in the middle or bottom of the tube of a glass water pipe. There are several different designs for ice pinches, but the purpose is to keep ice cubes, crushed ice, and even snow in the chamber of your water pipe to cool & diffuse or hit further.
Mouth Piece- Part of the pipe where you place your mouth to draw the smoke.
