How To Make A Water Bottle Bong In Nine Simple Steps. Knowing how to make a water bottle bong is sure to come in handy on countless occasions, and it couldn’t be easier. After doing it one time, you shouldn’t even need to refer to these directions again. Also, once you know how to do it, you will be able to teach other people how to make a water bottle bong too.
When it comes to selecting a water bottle for your bong, size matters. A 2-liter bottle, for instance, will be far too cumbersome. The goal is to select a bottle that will fill quickly with smoke when you light the bowl, which will allow you to take a hit quickly and effortlessly. At the same time, however, don’t choose a bottle that’s too small. This will make it difficult to generate enough smoke at one time to facilitate a decent hit. There’s no hard-and-fast rule when it comes to choosing a size, but those 16.9-ounce bottles are pretty perfect for this kind of thing. It’s best to use a water bottle for your bong because it won’t have a sticky residue, which can be an issue with soda pop bottles and the like. If there’s still water in the bottle, pour most of it out. You can leave a little in the bottom, but keep in mind that the smoke won’t be pulled through the water as it would with a regular bong. Some people like to remove the labels from their bottles before turning them into bongs.
That’s purely a matter of personal taste, so do what feels right to you. You have to remove the lid, though, as that is where the bowl will be. Try to use foil that is of a decent thickness to ensure optimal sturdiness. If the foil you have is flimsy, you’re going to want to fold it over at least one time to make it stronger. Whether you fold it up or not, cut it down to a size of about 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches. This will make it the right size to fit into the top of the bottle with room left over for it to wrap around the edges securely. By visualizing how it will be placed in the opening, you should be able to cut it to the right size without any trouble. When it comes to learning how to make a water bottle bong, this is among the most vital steps. This is where you make the bowl that will hold your dry herb or tobacco. It’s fairly intuitive, but be sure to take your time. Position the square of aluminum foil over the opening of the water bottle. Press it gently down part of the way into the opening. As you do this, envision how the dry herb or tobacco will fill it. You don’t want it to spill out or to otherwise create a huge mess, so make sure the bowl is deep enough. Be gentle too, or you could accidentally rip a hole right through the foil. Take the edges that poke out and wrap them down around the lip of the opening. Make sure it folds down far enough so it’s not in danger of slipping off while being used. Now, your water bottle bong won’t do you a lot of good if there’s no way for the smoke from your tobacco or dry herb to pass through the foil into the bottle. You’re going to need to poke a series of holes into your aluminum foil bowl. A sewing needle or pin works best for this step, but you could probably get away with using the tip of a pair of scissors — just be especially gentle to avoid ripping the bowl. While poking holes with the needle or pin, take care not to place them too close together. This increases the risk of punching a large hole, which will create major problems when you go to try to smoke out of your bong. The next step in learning how to make a water bottle bong is making a hole from which you can inhale the smoke from your dry herb or tobacco. You will need to use the same needle or pin to get it started. Before you do that, though, decide which side to make your hole.
If you want to hold the bottle with your right hand, make the hole on the left side; if you want to hold the bottle with your left hand, make the hole on the left side. Resist the urge to simply punch the needle through the plastic.
Once it’s all the way through, twist it around a little to make the hole wider. Trying to inhale smoke through an opening that’s the size of a pin isn’t going to work out too well. You need to make it larger in diameter, so get your scissors and press one pointed end into the hole you made with the pin.
