Top 5 checks for buying a new pipe.

Help! So many options. What do I do?

You have finally decided to pull the trigger and purchase a new piece. Only the question now is what one do you choose? With the sea of plentiful options out there it can be a daunting task to choose the right piece for you. Listed below, we will dive into the top five questions that you should ask and consider when making a new bong, pipe or smoking accessory decision.

Top 5 considerations when making your bong/pipe purchase

Man smoking money.

What's the cost?

One of the first considerations most people will face is cost restrictions. Ask yourself what sort of budget are you working with. What are the price ranges on products you're considering purchasing? Does the budget align with the product cost? If so, you are on the right path. If not, it might be time to consider alterative products or increase the budget to match going market prices. One last thing to mention is shipping cost. Sure, you've found a great deal, but how much is shipping going to cost you? This is one of the primary reasons includes FREE SHIPPING with every order.

Is it portable?

Will you be taking this bong, pipe or vaporizing device with you on the go? If so, you will want to consider the item or devices size. We wouldn't recommend  traveling with your 20" bong to the party. On the other hand, a quality glass pipe or vaporizing device allows you to place it in your pocket as an every day carry.

How do I clean it?

Different materials call for different cleaning procedures. Make sure you understand all cleaning instructions before making a purchase. In fact, there are many bongs and pipes that are made of aircraft grade aluminum, steel, glass, porcelain, plastic (NO THANK YOU), you name it! When it comes to cleaning your device or pipe we recommend 99% Isopropyl Alcohol and water, but make sure to check each potential purchase for cleaning instructions to be safe.

Does it break easy?

Are you a clumsy person or around an active home? Maybe glass isn't the best solution for you. However, fear not! Just because glass isn't an option doesn't mean you can't find quality options. For instance, offers an amazing line from STEEL Chill Pipes. Did I mention, we offer FREE SHIPPING?

Where do I store this thing!?

One of the last things we think of is where on earth do we put our glass bongs and pipes when we they aren't being used? After all you don't want your valuable artwork breaking because the dog knocked it off the table. Depending on the size of your pipe(s) and the material it's made of, you may wish to invest in durable storage case. Here is a great example that works for most glass pieces and partitioned glass bongs.
