Guide to Bubblers
A bubbler is a type of water pipe that consists of a chamber with two openings: a carb and a mouthpiece. The chamber contains water, which filters smoke before it reaches the user’s lungs. The process used by bubblers is similar to that in hookahs or bongs but on a smaller scale. Bubblers use removable bowls like dry pipes rather than permanently attached bowls as other water pipes do. This allows for easy cleaning and replacement of parts. In terms of appearance, bubblers are very similar to glass hand pipes from straight tubes with hard angles and flared mouths all the way up to elaborate tree percolators.
Types of bubblers include
Standard Bubbler – a simple water pipe with a downstream and a bowl. This piece has the same basic shape as a hand pipe but with an attached chamber for smoke/water filtration.
Ambi Safety Bubbler – typically used for smoking concentrates, this device is designed with extra layers of glass that cover two or three sides of your mouthpiece opening to reduce the likelihood of splash-back or injuries while smoking highly flammable concentrates.
Sherlocks – This is the more common name for the style of bubbler that has an attached bowl on one side and a mouthpiece on the other (located directly opposite to equal distance around, like what you’d see in a Sherlock Holmes pipe). The bowl end resembles that of a hand pipe while the other end looks like your typical water pipe mouthpiece attachment.
Sidecar Bubbler – this device has an opening at each end (approximately 180 degrees apart), with both openings containing bowls (one can be used as an ash catcher). Generally, it is much smaller than most bubblers—more comparable to hand pipes—and does not have a carb.
Nano Bubbler – this piece typically has a much smaller water volume than other bubblers, but still provides great filtration and cooling without the usual downside of reduced hit strength. In terms of appearance, it usually looks very similar to a basic dry pipe with just a few minor differences such as slightly thinner walls or slanted mouthpiece openings instead of being straight across. Sometimes they will have one bowl facing up at an angle toward you for use as an ash catcher or oil dome.
