Instruction to build a water bottle bong: 

You need to follow the following steps to build your own water bottle bong: 

Prepare the water bottle: 

The best bottle to make a water bottle bong is 17-ounce size. Basically, A soda bottle can also be used instead of a plastic bottle. Also, If you are using a soda bottle, you need to pay extra attention to the cleanliness of the bottle thoroughly. After cleaning the bottle, remove the wrapper of the bottle.  

Prepare the downstem: 

Once you are done preparing the bottle, the next step is to prepare the down stem. Downstem is essential to place a bowl on. You can use a highlighter, a ballpoint or a pen to make down stem. It would be best to use a fatter marker. Empty the marker, pen or highlighter, remove everything from inside. You will be having an empty tube that will be used as downstem.  

Make a bowl: 

If you have a metal pipe bowl that fits inside the plastic tube, you are good to go. But if your metal pipe bowl does not fit or you do not have one, you can use aluminum foil to make a bowl. Take a piece of foil, fold it two to three times to make it little bit thicker. Place the foil bowl on the downstem. Fold the edges. Poke four to five hole in the foil with the help of a pin.  

Insert the downstem: 

Firstly, Cut a small hole in the side of the water bottle with the help of scissors or a razor blade. Secondly, The hole should be one inch below the midway point.  Lastly, A lighter can be used to melt a hole in the bottle. Finally, Insert the downstem inside the hole at a downward angle.  

Make a carb hole: 

Cut another hole in the side of the bottle. Furthermore, This second hole will be the carb hole. 

Pour water in the bottle: 

With that being said, hold the water bottle in your hand and pour water in it to submerge the bottom of the downstem.  

Pack the foil bowl: 

Grind your cannabis with the help of a grinder. Put the grinded cannabis in the bowl and insert it into the down stem. 

Light it up: 

With this purpose in mind, the mouth of the bottle will be acting as the mouthpiece of the bong. Firstly, Hold the bottle in your hand, put your finger on the carb hole. Secondly, use a lighter or hemp wick to light the cannabis up. Lastly, Use your lungs to pull in through the mouthpiece. As you do, the smoke will get sucked down into the bottle and begin bubbling up through the water. 

Clear the bong: 

Once you are ready for your first hit, just remove your thumb/finger from the carb hole and start smoking.  

Why do people smoke out of water bottle bong? 

However, the answer to this question is so straightforward. People smoke out of water bottle bong because they are left with any other option. But smokers should not adopt this practice every time they smoke, and especially one bottle should be used only once.

Why do people avoid water bottle bongs? 

Basically, because water bottles can’t be used more than once, so, people avoid using it. Also, smoking from aluminum foil is also not a good idea.  


To conclude, It is always better to smoking from a Pyrex glass bong which is a safer and cleaner option. Generally, a Water bottle bong can only be used when you do not have any other option.
