How to Make a Water Bottle Bong – A Step by Step Guide

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to enjoy your herb or tobacco, you might want to try making a water bottle bong. A water bottle bong is a simple homemade device that allows you to smoke your product through water, which cools and filters the smoke. All you need are some basic household items and a few minutes of your time. Here is how to make a water bottle bong in 5 easy steps.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

To make a water bottle bong, you will need the following materials:

  • An empty plastic water bottle. Any size will work, but a standard 16.9 ounce bottle is ideal. Remove the cap and label from the bottle.
  • A lighter. You will use this to light your herb or tobacco, but also to help make the hole for the downstem and melt it to the bottle.
  • Scissors or another sharp tool. You will use this to poke holes in the bottle for the downstem hole and the carb.
  • A ballpoint pen. You will disassemble this and use the empty plastic tube as the downstem.
  • A small metal socket. You will use this as the bowl for your herb or tobacco. You can find one at any hardware store or in your toolbox.
  • Aluminum foil. You will use this to wrap around the socket and secure it to the pen tube.
  • Duct tape or gauze. You will use this to seal any gaps between the downstem and the bottle.
  • Water. You will fill the bottle with some water to create the bong effect.

Step 2: Make the Downstem and Bowl

The downstem is the part that connects the bowl to the water in the bottle, and the bowl is where you put your herb or tobacco. To make them, follow these steps:

  1. Disassemble the ballpoint pen, taking all the components apart until you are left with only the long empty plastic tube. This becomes the downstem.
  2. Take the metal socket and wrap a small piece of aluminum foil around its wide end. Press it down to form a bowl shape inside the socket. Poke some small holes in the foil with a needle or toothpick to allow air flow.
  3. Insert the narrow end of the socket into one end of the pen tube. The socket should fit snugly inside the tube, but if it is too loose, you can wrap some more foil around it to make it tighter.
  4. You now have your downstem and bowl ready to use.

Step 3: Make the Holes in the Bottle

The holes in the bottle are where you insert the downstem and where you inhale from. To make them, follow these steps:

  1. Poke a hole near the bottom of the bottle with your scissors or sharp tool. This is where you will insert the downstem at an angle, so make sure it is large enough for the pen tube to fit through, but not too large that it creates gaps.
  2. Poke another hole slightly above the waterline on the opposite side of the bottle from the first hole. This is where you will place your mouth when smoking, so make sure it is comfortable for you. This hole is also called the carb, which allows you to clear the smoke from the bottle when you release your finger from it.

Step 4: Assemble and Seal Your Bong

Now that you have all your parts ready, it is time to put them together and seal any leaks. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Fill your bottle with some water, enough to cover about an inch of the downstem when inserted.
  2. Push the open end of the downstem through the bottom hole of the bottle at an angle, so that it is submerged in the water. The bowl should be pointing upwards on the outside of
    the bottle.
  3. Check for any gaps between the downstem and
    the bottle, and seal them with duct tape or gauze. You want to make sure that no air escapes from these gaps when you smoke.
  4. You now have your water bottle bong ready to use.

Step 5: Enjoy Your Water Bottle Bong

To use your water bottle bong, follow these steps:

  1. Load your bowl with your herb or tobacco of choice. Don’t pack it too tightly or too loosely, as this will affect the airflow and the burning.
  2. Cover the carb hole with your finger and place your mouth over the mouthpiece hole.
  3. Light your bowl with the lighter and inhale slowly and steadily. You will see the bottle fill up with smoke as you draw.
  4. When you are ready to inhale the smoke, remove your finger from the carb hole and inhale quickly and deeply. You will clear the smoke from the bottle into your lungs.
  5. Exhale and enjoy the effects of your herb or tobacco.

Congratulations, you have just made and used a water bottle bong! Remember to clean your bong after each use, as it can get dirty and smelly over time. You can rinse it with some hot water and soap, or use some alcohol and salt to scrub it. You can also replace the bowl and downstem if they get clogged or damaged. Have fun and be safe with your water bottle bong!
