Why You Need An Ash Catcher
So What The Heck Is An Ash Catcher?
It is actually pretty simple. An ash catcher is for those of you who have a flower tube. It works as an accessory and it is very easy to add to pretty much any flower tube. No one in the world likes to take a hit from a pipe that is all dirty. At the same time, cleaning one is pretty brutal and no one really wants to do that either! But ash catchers will really help you out as they will make sure to catch any of the nasty stuff that can come from smoking, you know the gross, nasty residue we are talking about! Many ash catchers that are out these days have all kinds of “science” stuff done to them which basically helps to filter the smoke before it gets anywhere near the main chamber. So it helps your hit be really smooth and it also helps to keep things nice a clean!
Picking The Right Ash Catcher
We all have our favorite water pipe and we want to help you out to make sure you know how to ensure you pick the right ash catcher for it. Do not worry it is pretty darn easy as long as you follow our things you need to know.
What You Need To Know About Picking The Right Ash Catcher
There are three main sizes of glass water pipe. 10 mm, 14 mm and 18 mm. The first thing that you want to do is figure out what size your pipe is. This really is not hard at all and you can pretty much tell, just from looking at your pipe which size you have.
Hey, we may not discriminate here, but the fact of the matter is you need to know if your water pipe is female or male! You want as tight a fit as possible so if you have a 14 mm male joint on your tube you want a 14 mm female joint on the ash catcher. Just think of it as being like opposites attract.
Mostly all of the water pipe joints out there are set at a 45 or 90 degree angle. Just like how the joint size has to match up with the ash catcher so does the angle So if the joint you have is sitting at a 45 degree angle, the ash catcher you get will also have to sit at a 45 degree angle.
Size And Weight
This is something not too many people think about, but you want to think about the weight of your water pipe. Let’s say you have a really cool water pipe that is around ten inches in size. The last thing you want is to whack a six inch tall ash catcher! It will make your piece very top heavy and will cause it to most likely topple over. At the same time, if you have a really tall, kind of show piece bong, you will want a more aesthetically pleasing ash catcher that is going to complement its epic look!
Ash catchers offer a smoother hit and help keep things nice and clean so we hope that you smokers out there will have a think about adding one to your setup!
