Different Styles of Water Pipe Percolators
When it comes to water pipes, there is an ever increasing amount of different percolator styles. While we can't cover all of them, we'll share some of the common types of water pipe percolators you'll run into.
||The most simple form of percolator, the straight tube is simply a tube with slits at the base that goes under the water which lets smoke pass through the water, cooling it down.|
Anywhere from 4 to 64 arms, and the more arms, the more diffusion. Arms will either be open bottomed or closed, usually with slits on the sides. Smaller slits give smaller bubbles, which gives more diffusion. The more arms the more the smoke is separated, which allows for even more filtration and percolation.
A dome like enclosure with slits or holes where the dome meets the bottom. These percolators allow for diffusion when the smoke pass through the dome and separates when exiting the holes on the edges.
A unique perc, featuring a shower-like design that shoots water... well, just like a shower. Amazingly smooth, and awesome airflow.
This is a type of disk perc that looks like a honeycomb. More diffusion than a standard disk perc because of the number of small holes that let further divide the smoke that passes through them. The more holes the better the diffusion.
Hits as clean as an Irish spring, no soap necessary.
Showerhead percs are fairly simple percolators shaped like the shower in your bathroom. Slits or holes are placed at the bottom of a vertical tube that flares at the bottom, creating bubbles that diffuse and filter the smoke.
This time-tested engineering can be found in thick glass beakers as well as our elegant China Glass line. Whether your tastes are simple or range towards the fanciful, every glass collection can use a good showerhead perc!
Better in stereo.
The Stereo perc is a percolator design for your glass bong or dab rig with a gridded series of slits in a matrix style. The slits run completely around the perc, allowing for 360 degree diffusion through the water. Whoa, can you handle it?!
Also known as a matrix perc, some stereo percs feature two smaller matrix percs stacked on top of each other. Some say the bottom matrix is overkill because it doesn't bubble, but the truth is that it's necessary for the water to displace into and out of as it takes filtration to the next dimension.
Take your hits to Level 11 with our collection of stereo matrix percs!
Extra spaces for maximum diffusion.
Experiences smokers are always searching for bigger and better hits, and our collection of bongs and dab rigs with inline percs delivers.
An inline percolator is a horizontal tube fashioned with gridded slits within the water pipe. These classic percs offer great diffusion without sacrificing for airflow. It's an extra element of filtration to bring you the finest inhaled available!
The amazing tree percolator is a percolator with glass tubes coming off the main trunk, looking very much like the Whomping Willow of Harry Potter fame. But these trees don't swing their branches: The arms sit inside the dab rig or bong's water chamber, diffusing smoke for clean, smooth hits.
A genius design inspired by nature!
A Swiss percolator is a unique style of perc named for its resemblance to Swiss cheese, i.e., a lot of holes.
With punctuated spaces built into the body of a pipe, Swiss percs let smoke and water pass around the holes, filtering and cooling your smoke for a super smooth hit. These percolators are renowned among flower and concentrate users alike. The welded holes of a Swiss Perc act as a barrier which smoke and water are forced to move around—generating more bubbles and cooling the smoke. Swiss Percs are often paired with other percolators for a silky-smooth smoking experience.

Cyclone percs (or turbine percs) are discs with angled cuts around the sides. When water is pulled through them, it's forced to spin in a cyclone fashion creating a whirlpool effect. That's why they've earned the name of cyclones or "turbines".
Looking for Double the Bubbles?
A diffused downstem is a simple glass tube that pushes the smoke down through the water. Smoke diffuses into the water through the downstems holes or slits, spreading it throughout the liquid and cooling it down.
No more harsh inhales with a diffused downstem on your favorite bong or water pipe!
The more diffusion, the smoother the hit!
Go beyond the ordinary.
You already know that percs are the best thing that ever happened to bongs and water pipes. Here at your favorite online headshop, we say the more percs, the better.
We're not the only ones: Many of our glass brands and artists design and develop custom percolators that will blow your mind for their engineering and performance. Such unique percs include those such as sprinkler percs, rachett discs, mushroom percs, geyser percs, and much more.
