    What exactly is a percolator bong? I've heard of them and seen them but never used one and am wondering what exactly makes them different.

    im no expert, but i think percolators are just extra filters that cool/filter the smoke more, an unnecessary hassle and hard to clean IMO,

    I don't think that would be considered a perculator. A bong with a perculator usually looks like a regular bong but in the neck you see another chamber with water in it that the smoke passes through. Some bongs have more than one. Go to any paraphanalia website and you will see lots of examples. I personally have an 18 inch beaker bottom bong with a 3 arm tree perc. That means there are basically 3 downstems in the second chamber. The more arms/downstems in the perc the easier it will be to pull smoke through. That may be a shitty explanation but I'm pretty sure it accurate.

    A perculator is an add-on to a bong. I just recently got one for my Gear bong, and it works magnificently. It has a diffuser in it. So two water filters, two diffusers, and one ice catcher. Best smoke i've ever inhaled.

    If you have the money after buying a bong, I recommend getting one. It's not imperative, but it's nice to have.

    Out of curiosity do you have a link to what your talking about? I've never heard of a perculator that your can add on. As far as I know they are built into the bong not bought seperately. Maybe for an acrylic if anything but glass bongs are blown and made with them not removable.

    It just means another water chamber is added

    percolators are quite possibly the greatest invention ever,

    pros: diffuses smoke for more surface are and cools smoke greatly

    cons: harder to clean

    I've used a bong with a percolator once, it was awesome. I wouldn't buy one though, my lungs are pretty tough so I can handle any type of bong. It's not worth the money for me to buy one, because I don't really care...
