Bongs and Water Pipes

Discover Our High-Quality Water Pipes and Glass Bongs

Collection Highlights

TAG offers a wide variety of durable and high-quality glass water pipes and bongs for sale. Since 2013, we have engineered our glass to be as strong and functional as possible. If you are looking for a durable glass piece that will be by your side for years to come, look no further!

We use the strongest materials like borosilicate glass instead of soft glass, which is much weaker. We have a wide selection with sizes ranging from 3 inches to 3 feet, ensuring we have something for everyone.


Our water pipes provide smooth hits through water filtration devices also known as diffusers. These diffusers make smoke bubbles smaller, cooling the hit by increasing contact between smoke and water. Some of our items can also have ice added to make the smoke cooler and the experience even smoother.

Types of Bongs

Beakers: These have a wide bottom that flares up to the neck tube. They are the most common style, known for their stability because of the heavy bottom and high water volume.

Straight Tubes: These have a flat, wide base with a straight tube. Similar to beakers but with a narrow tube connecting to the base. They have decent stability and lower water volume.

Multi-Diffuser: These can be any style but feature at least two levels of diffusion. Perfect for those seeking the smoothest, coolest smoke.

Sherlock Bubblers: These have a curved neck design that keeps the bowl away from your face. The bent neck is comfortable and more convenient than straight styles.

Glass Recyclers: These recirculate water to ensure continuous diffusion and prevent splashback. Some diffusers can displace too much water. This can cause the percolator to not have enough water to work properly. Recyclers fix this issue by bringing water back down to the percolator, ensuring there is a constant supply of water.

Dab Rigs: These are smaller water pipes designed to preserve the flavor of oils with less vapor expansion.

How Do Bongs Work?

They work by putting smoke through water to cool it down. They use diffusers, which split the smoke into small bubbles. More bubbles mean more surface area, which results in cooler filtered smoke.

When you light or vaporize your substance in the bowl or dab nail, the smoke travels to the diffuser. The diffuser splits the smoke into many small bubbles, which cool as they pass through the water.

Gravity keeps the water down while the smoke rises, leaving only the cooled smoke to exit the device and enter your mouth. Water pipes allow for larger hits because of this cooling effect, which is why many users experience enhanced effects compared to using hand pipes or rolled-up paper.

How to Clean

  1. Rinse Thoroughly: Get out as much residue as possible.
  2. Soak with Solvent: Leave it overnight.
  3. Shake Until Clean: If residue remains, soak again or use hot water.
  4. Rinse Thoroughly: Ensure all chemicals are completely washed away.

How to Use

  1. Fill with Water: Make sure the water level is not too high or too low. The ideal water level depends on the piece and user preference. Some aim for 0.25 inches above the diffuser slits, while others prefer 1 to 2 inches above.
  2. Load the Bowl: Fill the bowl with dry herb or tobacco to your liking and light it with a lighter or hemp wick to combust. Some use a ceramic heating element for smoking.
  3. Inhale and Enjoy: Inhale through the mouthpiece, filling your lungs with smoke. Once you've reached your capacity, remove the bowl and inhale the smoke completely. Exhale and enjoy your session.


Many different accessories are available to choose from. Some are necessary for function, while others are optional but enhance the experience.

Required Accessories:

  • Glass Bowls or Slides: Essential for smoking flower, these hold your material. Without them, you cannot use your new glass.
  • Dab Nails: For smoking oil, you'll need a dab nail like a quartz banger or a titanium domeless nail.
  • Downstems: If you have a beaker or straight tube with a removable downstem, you can change how it hits. You can do this by swapping out the downstem. They come in various styles and sizes to fit your needs.

Optional Accessories:

  • Ash Catchers: These are great for adding another level of diffusion or simply stopping ash from entering your piece.
  • Non-Diffusing Ash Catcher: Does not cool the smoke down through water but catches the smoke and stops it in a pool of water beneath the bowl joint. Often preferred by those who enjoy retaining the original feel or function of their piece.
  • Water Diffusing Ash Catcher: Provides additional diffusion and cooling through the use of percolators.

Adding the right accessory to your piece can make all the difference. The wrong accessory can negatively affect how well your glass works, so it's important to choose carefully.

Benefits of Using a Bong

Using a bong offers many benefits:

  • Cooled Smoke: The water cools the smoke, making it easier on your lungs.
  • Social Experience: Bongs provide a fun way to enjoy smoking with friends.
  • Efficient Use: Bongs can use less material for the same effect, saving you money.
  • Customizable: You can add different accessories to suit your needs.
  • Multi-Use: Bongs work for both flower and oil.
  • Less Dry Hits: The water filtration reduces the dry sensation after smoking.

Different Materials Used in Bongs

Bongs come in various materials, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Here are the most common materials used:

Glass: Glass bongs are the most popular choice. They provide the cleanest taste and are easy to clean. Borosilicate glass is a strong type of glass that can handle high heat and is resistant to sudden temperature changes. However, glass bongs can be fragile and may break if not handled carefully.

Silicone: Silicone bongs are virtually indestructible and highly portable. They are perfect for travel or for those who are prone to accidents. Silicone bongs are also easy to clean and usually come in a variety of fun colors. The downside is that they may not provide the same clean taste as glass bongs.

Ceramic: Ceramic bongs are often beautifully designed and can be a work of art. They offer a smooth, clean taste similar to glass. However, ceramic is also fragile and can be heavy, making it less portable than other materials.

Acrylic: Acrylic bongs are the most affordable option and are very durable. They come in various colors and designs. However, they may not provide the best taste, as the plastic can sometimes affect the flavor of the smoke.

Bamboo: Bamboo bongs are sturdy and can have a natural, rustic appearance. They offer a unique smoking experience. However, bamboo can be harder to clean and maintain compared to other materials.

Male vs. Female Joints

Understanding the difference between male and female joints is essential when purchasing accessories. Female joints are stronger because we can make them thicker than male joints, so most of our pieces have them. Female joints allow inserting the bowl into them, while male joints require placing the bowl onto them.

Ensure you get the right accessories that match the gender of your bong's joint.
