We’re going to introduce different types of percolators to use with pipes. How many did you already know about?honeycomb perc types

  • The most simple form is the straight (or diffused down stem) which is simply a tube with slits at the base going under water. The slits let smoke pass through the water and cools it down.
  • The tree perc can have anywhere from 4 to 64 arms, which will either be open bottomed or closed, with the slits on the sides. The smaller the slits the smaller the bubbles, the more the diffusion. More arms mean more smoke is separated and this allows for even more filtration and percolation.  
  • A dome-like enclosure has the slits where the dome meets the bottom.
  • Next up are the gridded inline percolators, which have horizontal tubes with gridded slits cut around and under the tubes. They are often called barrel percs too.
  • The honeycomb is a type of disc percolator that looks like… well, like a honeycomb. These have more diffusion than a standard disc perc because they have a lot more smaller holes that further divide the smoke that passes through.
  • Next one in line is the showerhead, which is a vertical tube that flairs out at the bottom. Diffusion is provided by slits or holes.
  • The matrix is a taller puck-type, with lots of tiny holes and a blue and a red pill. Sorry, we had to…
  • The stereo matrix fancies two smaller matrix percs stacked on top of each other.
  • The Swiss is a vertical type perc which can be seen on unique pipes that resemble Swiss cheese.
  • The reti percolator comes with two cylinders, one inside the other with slits cut diagonally on the opposite ends.
  • Next up are the cyclone or turbine designs. These have slits cut along the side and are angled to force the water to spin in a cyclone or turbine-like manner.

As you can see, there are a lot of different options you can go with when it comes to purchasing the perfect percolator.
