Parts of a Water Pipe
Today we’re going to break down the basics of a straight tube water pipe - nothing fancy, just pure functionality.
Here are a few basic parts of a simple water pipe.
Mouthpiece: this is where you place your mouth and where the smoke is inhaled
Chamber: this is the tube in which the smoke travels to the mouthpiece, after your dry herbs are combusted
Bowl: this is where your dry herbs are placed before being lit and combusted
Ice Catcher: this part catches and holds ice in the chamber. Its whole purpose is to cool your smoke down before you take a hit.
Downstem: this piece allows smoke to travel from the bowl and through the chamber before being inhaled
Base: this is the bottom of the pipe which helps it stand upright without assistance
And there you have it, the parts of a basic, straight tube water pipe! We hope this clears up any confusion you may have had about all the features of your own water pipe.
