Things To Consider When Buying Glass Pipes

Buying glass pipes may seem like a pretty straightforward process, but if you want to get the best option for your needs, there are a few things you need to consider before bringing your new accessory home. To assist with this, we’ve put together this list of things to think about when buying glass pipes, read on to learn more:


The first thing you’re going to need to consider when buying glass pipes is the size that works best for you. This will affect how much water and other substances your new accessory is capable of holding so it’s a good starting point for working out which option is best for your needs. 


Next up, not all glass pipes are created equal so some are going to be a lot more durable than others. The durability of glass pipes depends on many factors including the intricacy of their design and thickness of their construction as well as their general size and shape so you’ll want to determine exactly how durable you’re going to need your new accessory to be before going any further with your selection. 

Material Quality 

While all glass pipes are obviously made of the same base material, this does not mean that they are all the same quality. As a general rule, you don’t want to be purchasing any accessories that have a quality any lower than food grade unless they will be for display purposes only. This may seem excessive but poor quality accessories can cause significant issues so it’s better to be safe than sorry.


The next thing you’re going to want to consider is the quality of filtration offered by any glass pipes you’re thinking about purchasing. Some people are fine with little to no filtration but others will want a far smoother experience and this can make certain types of accessories impractical, or even impossible, to use. As a general rule, the level of filtration provided will align with the amount of water you’re able to put in your new accessory but this can vary depending on how the device is set up so it’s always good to check.

Ease Of Cleaning

Keeping things clean is vital not only for maintaining the experience that you’ll have with your new accessory but also ensuring that it’s safe to use. The good news is that most glass pipes are fairly easy to look after, however, you’re still going to have to put some effort into keeping your new accessory clean. Because of this, it’s important to think about how much effort the entire process will take before you make your purchase. This helps ensure that you’ll keep a regular cleaning schedule and means you’ll have a better, safer experience. 


This consideration only really comes into play if you’re looking to travel with your new accessory often, but it’s worth noting that portability should also be thought about before locking in a decision. As a general rule, the more durable the glass pipes you’re considering are, the more portable they’ll be, but size also plays a role in this regard. 

Sharing Isn’t Always Caring

Finally, if you’re looking for glass pipes that you can share, please consider options that have multiple mouth pieces. Sharing isn’t always caring and it’s better for all involved if certain areas aren’t used by multiple people without being thoroughly cleaned first.

So, now you know what to consider when purchasing glass pipes, it’s time to get out there and find the right option for you – feel free to experiment with different types and designs until you find the right fit and enjoy!
