Ash Catchers FAQ

What Is An Ash Catcher?

An ash catcher or tar catcher is a useful device that is used with bongs to maintain the cleanliness of the water chamber and to add to the quality of the smoke. It is a small, glass attachment that is placed between the cone piece and the downstem. As the smoke passes through the cone piece, it first goes through the ash catcher which captures any ash or debris before it can enter the water chamber.

What Are The Benefits Of An Ash Catcher?

An ash catcher or tar catcher helps to keep the bong water in a better condition for a longer period of time, reducing the need for regular cleaning. Not only does it offer practical advantages, but an ash catcher can also refine the smoking experience by adding an extra layer of filtration and cooling to the smoke. Additionally, some ash catchers may be fitted with percolators or diffusers, which can further increase the smoothness and flavour of the smoke. All in all, an ash catcher is an advantageous and multi-functional accessory for any bong smoker who desires to keep their piece clean and experience a more pleasant hit.

How Do I Use An Ash Catcher?

Using an ash catcher with a bong is relatively straightforward, although the exact steps may vary slightly depending on the design of the ash catcher and the bong. Fill the bong with water as you normally would, taking care not to overfill it. Depending on the type of ash catcher, you can also fill it with water above the diffusor slits for an even smoother smoke. Once filled, insert the ash catcher into the bong's joint and then insert the cone piece into the joint of the ash catcher. Pack your cone piece with your desired amount of cannabis, light the herbs and begin to inhale slowly. This will draw the smoke through the bowl and into the ash catcher. As the smoke passes through the ash catcher, it will be filtered and cooled before entering the water chamber of the bong. Inhale the smoke from the bong as you normally would and when you're finished smoking, carefully remove the bowl and ash catcher from the bong and dispose of any remaining ashes or debris. Rinse the ash catcher with warm water and allow it to dry completely before using it again. It's important to note that while an ash catcher can help keep your bong cleaner for longer, it's still a good idea to periodically clean both the ash catcher and the bong to ensure optimal performance and flavour.

Are Ash Catchers Worth It?

Yes, ash catchers are definitely worth the investment if you want to enjoy a better bong smoking experience. Ash catchers provide a cleaner and smoother hit as they trap ash and other debris, preventing them from entering the water chamber of the bong. This helps to keep the water cleaner for longer and reduces the need for frequent cleaning. In addition, some ash catchers have percolators or diffusers built in, which can further enhance the smoothness and flavor of the smoke. Ash catchers protect your bong from tar and debris which can be difficult to clean and can lead to clogs or damage to the downstem or percolators. Ash catchers come in a wide range of designs and styles, so you can choose one that fits your specific needs and preferences. Some are small and simple, while others are more elaborate with multiple percolators and chambers for extra filtration. While an ash catcher may seem like an additional expense, it can actually save you money in the long run by reducing the frequency of cleaning and maintenance for your bong.

What Is A Percolator Ash Catcher?

A percolator ash catcher is a type of ash catcher that includes a percolator for additional filtration and diffusion of smoke. The percolator is a small chamber that contains one or more diffusion mechanisms, such as slits or holes, that break up the smoke into smaller bubbles. This helps to cool and filter the smoke even further, resulting in a smoother and more flavorful hit. The percolator ash catcher is attached to the bong in the same way as a regular ash catcher. Percolator ash catchers come in a variety of designs and styles, with different types of percolators and shapes to suit different preferences. Some popular types of percolators include honeycomb percs, tree percs, and showerhead percs, each of which provides a unique filtration and diffusion experience.
