Things you need to make water bottle pipe in 10 simple steps:
Plastic water bottle (a lightweight water bottle would be the best alternative for trying this DIY water bong tip because they do not leave any sticky residue behind)
A pair of scissors
Step 1 - Choose a right size of bottle
Indeed! You just cannot pick a big size of the plastic bottle to create water bottle bongs. Though there is no such rule to stick to a specific size, managing a big bottle like that of a 2 liter can be daunting. A bottle sized 16.9 ounce is just perfect as you can effortlessly handle it and easily carry it too.
Step 2 - Make your bottle ready
Yes! If there is some water in it, please pour it out completely, though you can leave the droplets. Use a clean water bottle with no scum in it. Just a humble reminder that it is not a regular bong and therefore smoke is not pulled out in this case through the water so a dry bottle will do more justice to the preparation. If you don’t want the label on it, just remove it. That’s it!
Step 3 - Remove the lid
You do not need a lid for making bongs with a water bottle so you can discard it.
Step 4 - It’s time to prepare aluminum foil
You must target a thicker aluminum foil for the purpose. But, if you have a one of lightweight you can fold it to make it thicker and then use. As it is used to fit over the bottle opening, a foil cutting of 2.5/2.5 inches would be perfect to cover it neat.
Step 5 - Wrap the foil
Cover the edges of the bottle top with a foil. Just put a little pressure on the head with your thumb to form a depression and create a bowl shape in the center. The depression is designed so that it can easily contain the herb. Also, don’t hit it hard to prevent tearing of the foil. Not to forget that aluminum is famous for its toxic properties; hence should not be wrongly used in the process of ingesting or inhaling.
Step 6 - Make holes
It’s time to poke a hole with a needle/toothpick in this homemade water bottle bong. 5-6 holes are optimal. Don’t make large holes and maintain a standard distance between all the holes to prevent the tear of a foil. For your information, if you make huge holes, the herb that will be placed in the bowl later will fall inside the bottle, and that should not happen.
Step 7 - Create a hole in the side of a bottle
Make one more hole into the outer portion of the bottle. You will need a needle to do the same. As this hole will be used for inhaling, you must make a hole on one side of the bottle so that you can hold it with your hand on the other side. Whether you want it on the left or the right side that depends upon the position of the hand you are comfortable with. If you use your left hand for daily jobs, make the hole on the right side and vice versa. You must make a bigger hole in this case, and you can do that with the help of scissors. You can start with a 1-inch diameter and then can enlarge the hole.
Step 8 - Put the herb
It’s time to pack the bowl at the top with the herb.
Step 9 - Smoke time
Cover the side hole with your mouth and then lit the herb for creating smoke inside the bottle bong.
Step 10 - Inhale
It’s time now to inhale gently and enjoy smoking. Isn’t it cool?
