If you are looking for a cheap and easy way to enjoy your favorite herb or tobacco, you might want to try making a water bottle bong. A water bottle bong is a homemade device that allows you to smoke your product through water, which filters and cools the smoke. All you need are some basic household items and a little creativity. Here is how you can make your own water bottle bong in a few simple steps.
What You Will Need
To make a water bottle bong, you will need the following materials:
- An empty plastic water bottle. Any size will work, but a standard 16.9 ounce bottle is ideal.
- A ballpoint pen. You will use the empty tube as the downstem.
- A metal socket. This will serve as the bowl where you put your herb or tobacco. You can find one at any hardware store or online.
- A lighter. You will use this to light your product and to make holes in the bottle.
- A needle, pin, or toothpick. You will use this to poke holes in the foil.
- Aluminum foil. You will use this to wrap around the socket and create a screen for the bowl.
- Duct tape and gauze. You will use these to seal the downstem and the bowl to the bottle.
- Water. You will fill the bottle with water to create the bong chamber.
How to Make a Water Bottle Bong
Follow these easy steps to make a water bottle bong.
- Disassemble all the parts. Disassemble the water bottle by removing the label and lid. The water bottle becomes the bong chamber, and the opening becomes the mouthpiece. Disassemble the ballpoint pen, taking all the components apart until you are left with only the long empty plastic tube. This becomes the downstem.
- Make a hole for the downstem. Use the lighter to heat up a small area near the bottom of the bottle, just above where the label stops. Be careful not to burn yourself or melt too much of the plastic. Once the area is soft, use scissors or another sharp tool to poke a hole through it. The hole should be slightly smaller than the diameter of the pen tube, so that it fits snugly.
- Insert the downstem. Push the pen tube through the hole at an angle, so that one end is inside the bottle and the other end is outside. The inside end should be submerged in water when you fill the bottle later. The outside end should point upwards, where you will attach the bowl.
- Make a hole for the carb. The carb is a small hole that you cover with your finger when you inhale, and release when you clear the smoke from the chamber. To make it, use the lighter to heat up another area on the side of the bottle, slightly above where you made the hole for the downstem. Again, be careful not to burn yourself or melt too much of the plastic. Once the area is soft, use scissors or another sharp tool to poke a small hole through it. The hole should be large enough for air to flow through it, but not so big that you can’t cover it with your finger.
- Make a bowl. To make a bowl, take a metal socket and wrap a small piece of aluminum foil around it. Press down on the foil to create a depression in the socket, where you will put your herb or tobacco. Use a needle, pin, or toothpick to poke several small holes in the foil, so that smoke can pass through them.
- Attach the bowl. To attach the bowl, insert it into the outside end of
the pen tube. You may need to twist it slightly to make it fit securely.

Making a water bottle bong is a fun and easy DIY project that can save you money and provide you with a satisfying smoking experience. All you need are some common household items and a little creativity. However, you should be aware of the potential health risks of using a plastic bottle and aluminum foil as smoking materials. These materials can release toxic chemicals when heated, which can harm your lungs and body. Therefore, you should use a water bottle bong only as a last resort, and not as a regular smoking device. If you want to enjoy your herb or tobacco in a safer and more efficient way, you should invest in a glass bong or a vaporizer instead. These devices are designed to deliver smooth, flavorful, and potent hits without exposing you to harmful substances. You can find a wide range of high-quality glass bongs and vaporizers online or at your local smoke shop.
