The Unbreakables: Have Water Pipes Entered the Scene?
Durability is a feature of many products out there in the world. You’ve probably heard about indestructible cases, the notorious brick phone from decades ago, and now... water pipes?
Sure, water pipes are made from super durable material and will survive humble tip overs or bumps, but they’re not unbreak-
Wait, what are you doing?! We can’t drop-test a glass water pipe!
Okay, so glass water pipes aren’t indestructible when it comes from dropping them from massive heights or running them over by a car. We know YouTube pays a lot of money to see that, but please put it down. Your water pipe deserves more credit than that!
Now with silicone water pipes, that’s a different story. Go ahead, drop them off the balcony edge, try to run them over; they’ll be fine. However, with super high heats, you may want to keep your silicone piece away.
We see you’re willing to test your luck with your pieces, and while that’s a ballsy choice, we’ll save you from wasting your hard earned money and tell you now: There’s no such thing as an unbreakable/indestructible water pipe;they’re just super durable. We’ll give you the breakdown on the best durable water pipes.
What durable water pipe is best?
When you’re looking for a water pipe suit for durability, make sure you know what material you’re wanting to smoke out of first.
Glass Water Pipes
- These water pipes are made from borosilicate glass, which is a heavy-duty material made to withstand high heats, bumps, and modest tip overs. You’ll want to get a feel for a glass water pipe when you’re picking out a piece for durability. Hold the water pipe, look at how dense the glass is, feel how heavy the piece is, and then make the decision on whether the water pipe is made to come home with ya.
- For mega-durable glass water pipes, Cloud 9 Smoke Co suggests giving International Trap Star water pipes a whirl.
Silicone Water Pipes
- These products are made from medical-grade silicone that is nontoxic and BPA free. Having a silicone body, these water pipes can be bent, broken apart, and used by the toughest of hands. Once you have a silicone water pipe in your possession, try dropping it or bending it; those suckers will not break. However, unlike glass water pipes, silicone has a hard time facing high heats. It may be best to keep open flames around these pieces for too long.
