This screen is to keep your bud from falling into the downstem. The mesh needs to be fairly tightly woven so burned bud doesn’t fall through. An easy DIY solution to this problem is to unscrew the tip of any faucet and remove the screen. The nice thing about this step is that once you’ve got the screen in there, you really don’t have to find a new one for a while.
You can remove it to clean now and again (if you feel like it), but, really, you can just leave the screen in there all the time. It’s not like you’re going to actually use it for its intended purpose any time soon. Push the small end of the socket into the hollow pen tube. Next, insert the end of the hollow pen tube without the socket back into the water bottle. We’ve still got a few more steps to go before we’re through. An airtight seal (or as nearly airtight as possible) between the socket and pen tube, and the pen tube and the water bottle, makes smoking with this bong so much easier. This is where the glue or silly putty comes into play. We like the silly putty because it can be peeled off and reused after your smoke session. That said, glue or super glue will work just as well but can’t be reused (nor can the pieces be disassembled).
The bulk of the sealing will need to be done where the pen tube touches the water bottle. If you’re using glue, spread a generous amount around the edge of the pen tube where it enters the water bottle. Let the glue dry for a few minutes to ensure airtightness. If you’re using silly putty, press the putty tight around the pen tube and water bottle to form a seal. You may also need to seal the socket/pen tube interface as well. Keep in mind that if you glue these two pieces together, you won’t be able to get them apart again. That’s why we like silly putty for all our sealing needs. Fill the bottom third of the water bottle with water until it covers the bottom opening of your pen tube. Pack the socket with a strain of your choice, light up, and smoke away. Homemade bongs can be fun for parties and when your regular paraphernalia isn’t available. But for regular smoke sessions, a glass bong is best. You don’t have to worry about whether everything is airtight or whether it will work correctly (it’s designed with both of those things in mind). You also don’t have to worry about hazardous chemicals being released when you heat up the components. And you don’t have to worry about the whole thing coming apart when you pass it around. We know you did a great job putting it together, but it is MacGyvered after all. Purchasing a glass bong may set you back a twenty or two (or three or four), but it will last pretty much forever. Plus, you won’t have to stress about finding all the materials to make your own water bottle bong. Front& back, top and bottom, battery covers included.
