If you want to smoke out of a bong but you don't have one around, don't fret. You can make your own out of a water bottle using a few simple tools. Just make sure you're using it in a place where smoking is legal. There are so many DIY recipes for water bottle bongs out there that it can be hard to distinguish the good from the bad. You’ll even see instructions for water bottle pipes that claim to be bongs but don’t use water. A bong uses water to filter and cool the smoke which makes for a much more pleasant and enjoyable smoke. On top of all that, a lot of the builds you’ll see use materials that, when heated, can release toxic fumes. These toxic fumes can make your smoke taste bad and even lead to headaches. That’s why we’ve assembled instructions for the safest and simplest water bottle bong you can make at home. The majority of the pieces and tools can be found pretty much anywhere, scavenged if not immediately available, or purchased for cheap if absolutely necessary. The only piece you may want to carry with you is the small socket. So without further ado, let’s get to building a simple and safe water bottle bong. As mentioned, most of these items can be found somewhere in the house. If you can’t find the exact piece we mention, look at the purpose of the component, read the instructions below to get an idea of how it’s used, and improvise a new solution. Bong: Water bottle Down stem: Plastic pen or mechanical pencil Bowl: 7/32 socket Screen: Small bit of screen Sealant: Glue, super glue, or silly putty. You’ll probably also need a pin or needle, a knife or scissors, and maybe a pair of pliers. The pin or needle is just to poke a hole in the bottle. It really doesn’t matter which you choose because it’s just to get the hole started and won’t be the final size. The knife or the scissors can also be used to poke the hole but will primarily be used for doing a bit of cutting on the pen. But again, we’ll explain that in the instructions below. The nice thing about this build is that the components can be disassembled for easy travel. A socket, a hollow pen tube, a bit of screen, and some silly putty or super glue are pretty innocent by themselves.
Chances are, they wouldn’t ring anyone’s internal alarm if the pieces were accidently discovered in your bag or car. Some of the water bottles out there are pretty flimsy. We like a water bottle that is a bit thicker so we don’t have to worry about squeezing too hard while we’re smoking.
Remove and discard the cap unless you’re going to reuse this homemade bong for some reason. With the pin or needle, poke a hole toward the top of your water bottle of choice. Next, take your pen with the ball point end still intact, and push it through the hole to make it bigger. Remove the pen from the water bottle and pick up your pin or needle again. Your carb hole should be high enough that water won’t slosh out when you tip the bong.
