What Is a Bubbler Water Pipe?
The water pipe, or bubbler, is the amazing crossover between a bong and a pipe. It has the all-in-one bowl of a glass pipe with the water filtration of a bong. The diffusion brings the benefit of smoother rips, making your experience much more pleasurable.
In addition to a mouthpiece, bubblers feature a stem and chamber where the smoke cools as it moves to the base of the water bong, which enhances the smoothness and flavor of the hit. Some bubblers also come with a percolator, which is an extra water chamber that helps in the cooling process and further enhances the weed bubbler pipe experience.
Bubblers, unlike water bongs, do not have removable bowls. They are a part of the bubbler bong design of the piece itself. In order to be called a bubbler, you need to have three things: A mouthpiece, a bowl that is integrated into the piece, and the capacity to hold water and diffuse it.
They can be used with or without water, and you can use them to enjoy many of your favorite herb blends to get a great hit. The unique size and shape of a glass bubbler also give artists a lot of freedom to create amazing works of art.

What Are the Different Types of Water Bubbler Bongs?
There is a wide variety of smoking pipes available for you to choose from. Let's go over the most popular so you know exactly what you can expect from each style.
A standard glass bubbler is any style of water pipe made from glass. Usually, they’re between 5–6 inches tall and have the standard bubble bong-style base with a weed bowl with a nonremovable stem. The bubbler mouthpiece generally sits up an extra 2–3 inches and they’re often fumed for color changing or have bright cane glasswork. They also tend to have a wide variety of colors.
A hammer bubbler is one of the best bubblers available. They’re stretched out horizontally and sit on both the bubbler bowl and mouthpiece, which gives the bubbler a hammer-like appearance. Not only are they sturdy, but smoking a bowl from a bubbler delivers a nice smooth hit with a lot of style.
Mini bubblers are small, short, cute bubblers. They are typically between 3–5 inches tall, which makes them perfectly suited for taking with you on all of your adventures. If you’re in need of some diffusion on the go, there’s no better way than your small bubblers.
A perc bubbler gives you the best of both worlds. You get the small size of a water pipe with the added water filtration of a percolator. There are plenty of choices, including matrix percolators and barrel percolators. These pipes are ready to deliver you a clean smoking experience.
A sherlock bubbler is likely what most people think of when they think of a glass water pipe. They have a bent back neck which prevents water backsplash and keeps the flame away from your face as you’re lighting the herb bowl.
A large bubbler is any water pipe more than six inches tall. These bubblers are nice because they put space between your face and the flame over your bowl. That way, you don’t run the risk of burning your eyebrows by accident.
Double-chamber water pipes or double bubblers have two chambers to fill up with smoke. If you want a bubbler that’s going to deliver a punch these are perfect for you.
The freeze bubbler filled with glycerin is a unique glassware piece that combines a bubbler with cooling properties. It enhances the smoking experience by providing a smooth inhalation.
For an added effect, the freeze bubbler can be placed in a freezer to partially freeze the glycerin, creating icy formations within the chamber. This not only intensifies the cooling but also adds aesthetic appeal.
Fumed Color Changing Bubbler
Fumed color-changing bubblers offer an engaging smoking experience. Utilizing real gold or silver in the glassmaking process, they display mesmerizing colors that deepen with use. Compact and portable, these bubblers feature a built-in water chamber for smoke purification, providing smoother, cleaner hits. The transparent bubbler glass allows monitoring of water levels and cleanliness, ensuring an optimal experience. A fusion of aesthetics, functionality, and durability, fumed color-changing bubblers turn each use into a unique event, making them an ideal choice for both novices and connoisseurs.
Shop Our Glass Bubblers for Sale
At Fat Buddha Glass, we’re proud to deliver the kind of highs you’ve been searching for in a bubbler. We have dozens of high-quality glass bubbler pipes available at low prices. Every connaisseur should own a quality bubbler, and we’re confident you’ll find the perfect one here at Fat Buddha Glass online smoke shop.
Using a bubbler is a pretty straightforward process, and we have broken it down into three simple steps.
First, add the appropriate amount of water to your bubbler to cover the bottom of the downstem. Once you have done this you will be able to properly diffuse your smoke, making for a nice smooth rip.
Next, you need to pack your weed bowl. When loading up your bowl, it’s important to not pack it too tightly, or else not enough oxygen will be able to get through. Another good tip to think about is the consistency of your grind. If you’re grinding your herb too thin it may burn too quickly—too thick and it may not burn enough. It’s all about finding that sweet spot.
Lastly, you can light up your bowl. This is where all the magic happens—or the chemistry. All you have to do is place your thumb over the carb hole, light the bowl, and inhale. Once you feel your bowl is properly lit, you can take the flame away and remove your thumb from the carb hole. Not all water pipes have carb holes, but bubblers do.
Pro-tip for lighting your cannabis bowl: Take the side of the flame slowly to the edge of your bubbler as you inhale through the mouthpiece to leave some “greens” for your friends. This is great to consider when in group settings, or even when you’re alone, to get more out of your bowls.
How to Clean a Bubbler Pipe
We want to stress how important upkeep is when it comes to using your pieces. If you want a satisfying experience, keep your water fresh, keep your bowl fresh, and keep ash out of your piece!
Bubblers can get pretty gross if you don’t clean them, so let's break down the best way to clean them. The first tip is to remember to clean it frequently. The more often you clean your bubbler, the less work you’ll have to do to clean it each time. Honestly, doing this is going to make your sessions ten times better in terms of flavor, potency, and overall enjoyment.
To clear out the bowl, take a small pointed object like a pen, knife, or piece of paper, and scoop out the contents. Once you’ve done that, one of the best things you can do is to use a cleaning kit. Soak your piece in the solution for an hour, and then rinse until clean. Once you’ve done this you will have a sparkling clean piece that will last you for many sessions to come.
Bubbler vs. Bong: Which Is Better?
Bubblers and bongs are both wonderful innovations in the smoking world. Both bubblers and bongs use water to diffuse your smoke and give you a silky smooth rip. Which one is better depends on the person. Do you have the space for a large water bong, or would you prefer the size benefits that come with bubblers? If you’re on the go, a mini bubbler is basically a portable water pipe. Either way, it’s good to think about what will be best for you.
Are Bubblers Better than Pipes?
That depends! There are a few differences that can help you decide which is better for you. Weed pipes fit horizontally in your hand, while water pipes, or bubblers, fit vertically. Pipes have nothing diffusing the smoke in-between the bowl and the mouthpiece, while bubblers run your smoke through a small amount of water to diffuse your rips.
If you’re someone who finds water diffusion to be a massive benefit, bubblers are for you! But if you’re someone who just loves the accessibility, portability, and size of hand pipes, then you know what you should do. To truly know the difference, we recommend you try out both to see what you like best.
If you have any questions about the process of finding the best piece, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d love to hear from you and help find that perfect piece.
How much water should be used in a bubbler?
Using a bubbler pipe efficiently requires an optimal amount of water, which can significantly improve the quality of the smoking experience. As a general rule, you should fill your bubbler until the water level reaches about one-third to one-half of the pipe. This is usually enough to filter the smoke effectively while preventing water from splashing into the mouthpiece.
However, the exact amount of water can vary depending on the size and design of the bubbler. It's best to start by adding a small amount of water, then draw through the mouthpiece without any substance. If you hear a gurgling sound and no water comes into your mouth, you've achieved the right level. If not, adjust accordingly. Always ensure to change the water regularly to maintain a clean, refreshing experience.
Do bubblers get you higher?
Whether a bubbler gets you higher compared to other smoking methods isn't determined by the device itself but the efficiency of consumption and the quality of the substance being smoked.
A bubbler, like a bong, uses water filtration to cool down the smoke before it is inhaled. This cooling effect allows for a smoother, larger inhale, which could lead to a more substantial intake of the active compounds (like THC in cannabis), potentially leading to a stronger effect or "higher" feeling.
However, the "high" is also affected by the quality and potency of the substance being used, the user's tolerance, and their physiological response. So, while a bubbler might allow for more efficient consumption, it doesn't necessarily mean it will always get you higher.
How Much Do Bubblers Cost?
Bubbler prices depend on their size, features, and designs. You can find some cheap bubblers for $15 that are sure to do the job. Or, you can spend a little bit more and get one of the best bubbler pipes around, like a Grav Bubbler for $99. It all just depends on what you’re comfortable with.
Why Choose Fat Buddha Glass Smoke Shop?
Fat Buddha Glass was started by two lifelong friends who have collected and used all kinds of bongs and hand pipes for over 2 decades. We understand that using a water glass bong or pipe is a lot more than just something you smoke out of but, rather, it's part of the entire experience. We have used pretty much every type of pipe out there, from mini bongs to giant bongs, from percolator bongs to the classic beaker bong. After years of trying to find the perfect piece but having issues with buying a bong online we thought we could merge our passion for glass and our drive to offer the best products and service in the industry so we started Fat Buddha Glass.
All of our products are curated by our Chief Glass Enthusiast Mike Colavita. Each design is thoroughly inspected and tested before we offer them in our store.
Our products produce pure and potent blue smoke within minutes and make the entire process exceptionally easy. However, while there are tons of cheap bongs on the market, Fat Buddha Glass lets you be a buyer of quality glass bongs online at great prices.
We use the best quality material for water bongs and other smoking accessories and offer them at the best price. While some get simple plastic bongs, these often provide a subpar and unhealthy smoke experience. That's why we use water bongs made from borosilicate glass, which is also known as scientific glass because of its use in laboratory experiments, medical settings, and even the storage of radioactive materials. It’s also able to withstand the extreme changes in temperature that water bongs go through without weakening, which means our glass pipes have a higher shelf life.
This also means that your Fat Buddha Glass smoking accessories are going to be a long-lasting investment. Unlike other manufacturers who mass produce low-quality glass pipes, our products are strong, sturdy, and easy to clean. The glass water bongs you find in stores have often collected dust over time, but not at Fat Buddha.
