Question regarding bong percolators
Posted 03 March 2009 - 11:53 PM
But anyways, I've been in the market for a new bong, and I would like it to have a percolator. However, I have never seen a bong with percolator in person, only read about them and saw pictures online. My main question for the city is: How do you fill up a bong with 1 or more percolators? Do you have the fill up the bottom through the stem, or can you put the water in right from the top, and it will all even out on its own? For example, in this picture (http://www.420magazi...30148058239.jpg) the water is in the perc, stops, then has water in it again. I guess I just don't understand how this happens. I tried searching for similar topics on GC, but I didn't really find any besides 1, and it didn't help much.
I'm sure if I had seen one in real life I would understand, but... that's not the case
Thanks in advance!

I don't understand how the water stays in the perc though, if there's a hole that will drain it into the bottom of the bong... but if it does, it does. I just don't want to buy a bong with a perc, then not really know how to work it.
.. Sorry. Guess I'm just confused. But I'm sure I'll manage.

Once you see it, you'll know what to do.

they get nasty and hard to clean i would get a nice small nothing off the wall see through one footer or something. with no perc. the hits will always taste better and it will be easier to clean.. theres nothing worse then a dirty bong:bongin:
They do get a little dirty, but whenever I clean out my bong, I clean out my percolator too and it's still usable after 2+ years. Also if you are worried about cleanliness an ashcatcher might be a good choice so you can just buy a new one once it gets too filthy.

hey guys just wondering, is it the same deal for a single dome perc?
My bong has a single dome perc and you can pour water through the stem and then fill the perc or you can just fill the tube with water and the excess water will pas through to the base. Both work fine though.

Fill through downstem until water is half an inch to an inch above perc, fill through top until water level is similar on top perc.
No it won't do all the work for you. You could fill it through the top until it starts draining through then blow through to push some water through the top perc to get the levels back down to where you want it to be, but you're gonna be spraying water out the downstem at the same time doing that, or overfilling the bottom.
