If you’re new to vaping and don’t know what a water pipe is, you should learn about what they are. People love them because they make vaping fun and easy.

With as popular as vaping has become, it’s now possible to find vaping accessories for all style preferences and budgets. Water pipes come in all shapes and sizes, from pocket-sized portable versions to table-top bongs.

If you want to improve your vaping experience, vape water pipes are the way to go. Here’s a quick introduction to what they are and how they work.

What Is a Water Pipe?

Whether you’re just getting used to vaping or you’re already an expert on how it works, water pipe vaping can introduce you to a whole new level of pleasure.

A water pipe is a glass accessory that attaches to a vaporizer. It helps filter the vapor so it’s easier to breathe. Water pipes work by cooling and filtering the vapor, so taking a draw doesn’t irritate the throat and cause coughing.

People have used “bongs” for years to smoke, but with the introduction of vaping, the vaping industry has adopted the concept. Now there is a myriad of accessories like this quartz banger that the market has introduced for vaping. Most vaporizers have water pipe attachments because of this popularity.

Usually, the vaping brands have their own lines of water pipes that work with their products. Portable water pipes are especially popular because they can stow away in a pocket or backpack for convenient everyday access.

Water Pipe Vaping

If you want to try water pipe vaping, there are several styles to choose from made by a creative glass process. Here’s a summary of the most popular ones that are currently available.


Bubblers are small, bong-like pipes that contain a water chamber. They percolate the water to help create a smooth hit for the user.


Beakers look a lot like chemistry lab glassware such as test tubes or flasks, and they work well for vaping. They aren’t as fancy as other types of water pipes, but they get the job done. They still percolate the water and enhance the vaping experience.


Bongs come in many shapes and sizes and may have large water chambers compared to other types of water pipes. All bongs are generally considered to be water pipes, although it’s not the case the other way around. A water pipe might not technically be a bong, due to style differences.


Sherlocks are vaping pipes that look like the fictional character Sherlock Holmes’s 19th-century Calabash smoking pipes. They all have a curved neck and a bowl. Sherlock water pipes are rare because their shape doesn’t usually leave much room for a water chamber- but they do exist.
