Acrylic Water Pipes

Acrylic bongs, made from durable plastic material, offer an affordable and portable option for smokers.

What are acrylic bongs?

Acrylic bongs are water pipes made from acrylic, which is a type of plastic material known for its durability. Acrylic bongs are popular among smokers thanks to their affordability, durability and no fuss designs.

These bongs typically consist of a base, a chamber for water, a bowl or slide where the smoking material is placed, and a mouthpiece for inhaling the smoke. The base holds the water, which helps filter and cool the smoke as it passes through. The bowl or slide is where the smoking material is packed, and it is usually removable for easy cleaning and reloading.

Acrylic bongs are known for being lightweight and less fragile compared to glass bongs. They are often preferred by people who are looking for an inexpensive option or those who frequently travel or take their bongs on outdoor adventures. Acrylic bongs come in all different shapes, sizes, and designs, though it’s important to keep in mind that they may not provide the same level of purity or smoothness as glass bongs.

The plastic material can affect the taste of the smoke, and acrylic may not withstand high temperatures as well as glass. Additionally, acrylic bongs can be more difficult to clean thoroughly compared to glass ones. However, they can’t be beat when it comes to durability and affordability, so they’ll be perfect in a pinch!

Benefits of acrylic bongs

Acrylic bongs offer several benefits that make them popular. For starters, they’re some of the cheapest water pipes on the market, so they’re great if you like the way water pipes hit but don’t want to break the bank. Acrylic is also a sturdy and impact-resistant material, making acrylic bongs less prone to breakage compared to glass bongs. Their lightweight design makes them easy to carry and transport when you’re traveling or on the go, but more importantly, they can withstand accidental drops or rough handling without shattering, making them suitable for outdoor or on-the-go use, as well as in large group settings where accidents tend to happen.

Aside from all that, they’re exceptionally easy to use and clean and come in lots of different sizes, shapes, colors, designs and patterns. They’re fun to use and customize, and cheap enough to have a bong for every vibe you’re feeling.

Are acrylic bongs safe to use?

In short, yes. But it’s important to start with a high-quality acrylic bong instead of supremely cheap one, take good care of it, and retire it when the time comes. Proper cleaning and maintenance are important for keeping an acrylic bong safe to use. Residue or build-up inside the bong can affect the taste of the smoke and may potentially harbor harmful bacteria. Further, even though acrylic bongs are generally more durable than glass bongs, they are not indestructible. Accidental drops or excessive force can cause cracks or damage to the acrylic, so be sure to keep an eye on the bong for any signs of damage, and if any cracks or chips are present, it’s time to get a new one.

It’s also important to keep in mind that acrylic has a lower heat resistance compared to glass. Exposing an acrylic bong to high temperatures can cause it to warp, release potentially harmful chemicals, or even melt. It’s crucial to avoid using excessive heat when smoking out of it, and to allow the bong to cool down between sessions. Inferior or poorly made acrylic bongs may contain additives or impurities that could potentially be harmful when heated or inhaled. The plastic material can also impart a slight plastic-like taste, which tastes gross. If the taste of the smoke is a priority, a glass bong might be a better option.

How much do acrylic bongs cost?

The cost of acrylic bongs can vary depending on things like size, design, brand, and additional features. Generally, acrylic bongs tend to be more affordable than other bongs. On the lower end, you can find basic acrylic bongs for around $10 to $30. These are often simple designs with standard features and may not have intricate artwork or additional percolators.

Mid-range acrylic bongs can range from $30 to $70. They may have more elaborate designs, unique shapes, and additional features such as percolators or ice catchers, which help cool the smoke. On the other hand, higher-end acrylic bongs can range from $70 to $100 or more. These may feature intricate artwork, specialized designs, and advanced percolation systems for smoother smoking experiences.

How do you clean acrylic bongs?

To clean an acrylic bong, follow these steps:

  1. Start by emptying out any remaining water or smoking material from the bong.
  2. If your acrylic bong has removable parts, such as the bowl or downstem, remove them for easier cleaning.
  3. Rinse the entire bong, including the base, chamber, bowl and mouthpiece with warm water to remove loose debris.
  4. Mix a cleaning solution using warm water and a mild dish soap, rubbing alcohol and salt, or specialized bong cleaning solution. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that can damage the acrylic.
  5. Shake the cleaning solution throughout the bong. For tough-to-clean messes, use a soft brush or pipe cleaner to scrub the inside surfaces of the bong. Avoid using hard-bristle brushes or abrasive materials that could scratch the acrylic. If your acrylic bong has removable parts like the bowl or downstem, clean them individually using the same cleaning solution and rinsing thoroughly before drying.
  6. After scrubbing, thoroughly rinse the bong with warm water to remove any leftover cleaning solution.
  7. Allow the bong to air dry completely before reassembling and using it again.

How do acrylic bongs compare to glass bongs?

Acrylic bongs are known for their durability, as they are less prone to breakage and can withstand rough handling. On the other hand, glass bongs offer superior heat resistance, allowing them to endure high temperatures without warping.

When it comes to smoke quality, glass bongs are often preferred due to their ability to provide a cleaner and more pure smoking experience, while some users find that acrylic bongs may impart a slight plastic taste to the smoke.

Cleaning glass bongs is generally easier, as glass is non-porous and less likely to accumulate residue, while acrylic bongs can be more challenging to clean thoroughly due to their porous nature.

Acrylic bongs offer more customization options in terms of design and color, while glass bongs are often regarded as more aesthetically appealing but come with a higher price tag. Ultimately, the choice between acrylic and glass bongs depends on your preferences, budget, and specific needs.
