When most people hear the term “bubbler” they tend to think of a party trick or show. While there is certainly a place for gimmicks at celebrations, bubbling is generally used more in the entertainment field. There are two common types of bubbling which include glass bubbling and metal bubbling. The purpose of this article is to discuss the differences between these two types of bubblers so you can make an informed decision about what you use for your next party.
First of all, what is a bubbler? A bubbler is simply a water bubbler. Bongs are like bubbles in that they are also a form of water pipe, albeit one with a different shape. But in terms of size and shape, bubbles tend to resemble soda bottles, which means they are either smaller than a standard bong and cannot easily be taken apart for simple cleaning or repair, or larger than a soda bottle and once damaged, very difficult to repair. If you have ever seen someone spills a drink on their handkerchief, you know what I’m talking about. It takes a professional repair person to mend even the smallest of tears in cloth materials such as a cloth bubbler.
A glass bubbler, or carbong, is a slightly more advance version of the bubbler. A glass bubbler can look very much like a cigarette because of the way it is designed but unlike a cigarette because it has no match and smoke will not fall out. This is done through a process called gasification. During the manufacturing process the glass is sealed with a solution that creates a gas, normally nitrogen, inside the glass while it is still hot. The gas is what causes the liquid inside the glass to turn into vapor, which makes it easier to light compared to traditional bubbler.
Many people use glass bubbler pipes for smoking because they are easier to light compared to traditional pipes and easier to smoke since there is no need to worry about smoke seeping out and creating a mess. However, there are downsides to having a glass bubbler pipe, mainly the cost of maintaining them. While glass is less expensive than metal, it’s still not cheap. There is also the risk of breakage when you are constantly smoking from the same spot and the frustration of trying to manage two pipes at once.
A filtration system is not the answer when looking for an answer. Although the bubbler works fine without a filter, they are often overlooked when looking for a solution. A good filtration system can keep your glass bubbler from breaking but you will spend a lot of money on it. An air tight filter can work well, especially if you do not plan to use the bubbler very much or if you just want the taste of the tobacco without having to deal with the cleaning and maintenance. Filters can range in price from under $30 to over $100, depending on size and design. Some can even remove the scent from your tobacco if you are not a smoker.
A related article that also includes information on glass bubbler includes a list of disadvantages. Some disadvantages include that they tend to not last as long as other types of pipes and can have a high price tag. They can be easily broken if dropped. You may even have trouble finding the perfect one to fit your needs. One of the best features about them is that they are portable and you can take them with you wherever you go.
Pipes for bubbling are not the only option available and in many cases, you can choose a bubbler that combines a water pipe and a bubbler. Water pipes are great because they allow the bubbler to produce steam while it smokes, which can provide a unique experience in a new piece of art. Water pipes do however require more maintenance and can break easier than glass or acrylic bubblers.
The best bubblers will depend largely on personal preference. The type that you decide to use will need to accommodate all of your needs. Glass bubblers will be able to handle a variety of scents and temperatures and will create a unique smoking experience each time you light up. In addition to providing a unique smoke-alike flavor, glass bubblers can also be used to add water or clear your smoke when you are done smoking. Acrylic bubblers provide a similar smoking experience without taking away from your glass bubbler container.
