    anyone have experience with a waterfall bong? i wanted to try one tomorrow and had a few ?'s... what do you use as a bowl to insert in the cap? does it fuck you up real fast like the gravity bong? that shit kicked in as i exhaled lol and how many times, IYO, do you recap the same bowl? like will a 2liter filled kill a whole bowl?

    Waterfalls are the shit!!!
    Yes, it does fuck you up real fast like a gravity bong. A 2-liter bottle will generally use the entire bowl, but I go for a second sometimes. I use an old bowl from his bubbler that broke. You can buy these types of replacement bowls at head shops. I used to use tin foil with holes in it for hashish in the waterfall.

    Have fun!

    check out this movie http://www.waytoomany.com/vids/weed/gravity_bong.php it's how i learned, i didnt use a drill or a 1/4 inch socket, i used a screwdriver and a bowl from this metal pipe i got, it does hit like a m/f, i felt it after one time, i used a 2liter bottle and got 2 bottles full from one bowl, very economical IMO

    It is very simple. Here is what you will need for supplies:
    2 liter soda bottle with cap
    5 Gallon bucket (or something big enough to submerge the bottle into)
    1 bowlpiece (aka slide for a bong)
    Scissors or a bread knife.

    Setting it up:

    You can cut the bottle in one of two ways. You can cut the whole bottom off (like in the picture that is attached to this post) Or the more perferable way (to me) is to cut off each of the little "legs" of the bottle. What i usually do is lay the bottle on the side. Start at the yellow line (on the coke bottle pic) and cut out the triangle in green. Leave anything in red. When your finished, the "legs" should have triangles cut out of them, with the bottom still intact so it can stand up... (you can also cut each of the 5 little bottoms off to have small squares)

    https://drugs-forum.com/threads/16026?highlight=gravity pictures there

    Reason for not just cutting the bottom:

    Why not just cut the bottom off? it's faster, easier... Well i have a few reasons. When just cutting out the triangles, or just the bottom part of the square, i find that the water is more controled when it is flowing out. It helps to mantain the structural integrety of the bottle, so it dosent just fold into itself and the water flowing out really quick. With the triangles, i find the suction is much stronger, and it pulls a better GB.

    Setting up the cap:

    Take a drill bit either the same size as the slide, or a tiny bit smaller. Slide the bowl piece and stem through the hole, and seal with some type of putty or something to make airtight. If your pushing a bowlpiece through a hole that is smaller then the slide, then heat the plastic first...

    Pulling it:

    Put the bottle in the water, pack the goodies in the bowl, screw it on all the way, and gentally pull up. There is a method that will get the bowl to cherry really quick (quick up and down motions with the 2-liter)... But you will get it as the time goes on.... For the biggest hit possible, blow out all the air in your lungs prior to the hit, and then suck it up and hold!

    ENJOY!

    back in the day when we made one of these, i used 2 bottle caps with the same sized hole in the middle of each cap, attached the 2 caps with some kind of tape or something so the holes match up, put some screen in the cap and lined the inside with foil to prevent the plastic from getting hot too fast, and then you just screw the cap deal on and fill the bowl, screw the cap off and take the hit, worked fine for us.

    Is a waterfall bong the same thing as a gravity bong?

    A waterfall is the exact same thing, but you poke a hole in the bottom, and then you pack the top, fill with water, uncover the hole light the top, let the bottle fill, and then suck it through... Sucks because your limited in size of the hole, and how fast it drains... Also there is pressure behind a gravity bong

    http://www.waytoomany.com/vid-weed1.php go there and look for the waterfall bong. that is what it looks like and how it works

    or what one could do to make a a bowl in the top is burn a small hole in the cap of the bottle and push a socket nut like this through the hole <a href="http://photobucket.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r167/x_Decathect_x/socket.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a> burn a small hole on the bottom and light. the water pulls the smoke into the bottle that replaces it as it vivciously pisses all over the place. fun.

    that's why the trick is to make the hole the right size. if done correctly, the bottle will fill up slowly and surely, the entire thing full of yellow smoke waiting for your lungs.

    Waterfall bongs are great, imo it's better than a gravity bong because you won't accidentally swallow any water and you get the same results. What I did was I took a universal bottle cap, made a hole in it and put a socket piece in it. it works great, just get a screen and you can use any bottle as a waterfall bong. enjoy!

    Made this thread a couple posts down on waterfall bongs: https://drugs-forum.com/threads/32928

    You don't neccesarily need any tools other than a lighter and a bowl piece. I use the bowl piece from a mushroom pipe/metal pipe with a screw off bowl. Either way if you melt the cap of the bottle you're using (but not too much, or it will just start dripping plastic, nasty stuff) and then push it in just right you'll melt the bowl right through the cap. The plastic cap will solidify around the bowl as it cools, leaving a near airtight top. This is actually somewhat tricky and becomes easier with practice or if you have someone to show you. But once you get it you can just save the melted cap/bowl piece and transfer it to another bottle when you want a new piece.

    If you can get it right SWIM guarentees it will FUCK YOU UP like none other, gravity bongs included. Part of it might be just putting that much weed (I would use a full bowl, sometimes it would extend into a second waterfall) into the small space of a vitamin water container. It might also be that it makes you cough so much. Whatever the case that thick yellow smoke will put you on the floor. Be careful if your tolerance is low, I have seen people get TOO high off of waterfalls before.

    SWID has a metal piece that has a lid for the bowl with a whole on top. This worked excellent as a bowl in a apple juice bottle lid. The bottle size was somewhere around 2 liters give or take and with the bowl size it was big enough to take it all (unlike SWID at times.) One rip and SWID would be high as hell. Two rips and SWID would be stoned as hell. Three rips and SWID would lose grip with reality (as far as you could go with herb that is). Four or five and SWID would feel sick and pass out.

    There were times when SWID would smoke alot out of her and would be driving in to town. The cars going the other way would come at SWID fast and then go back and come up faster and so on and so forth. SWID did that one morning after a cocaine binge the night before. He, to this day, cannot remember what he did that morning.

    Waterfall bongs kick ass.

    The first night The Ghost Of Ralph's Mom (henceforth known as TGORM) and a friend of mine made a waterfall, it was made stunningly. A 2 liter soda bottle was used as the body, with a hole roughly the size of a pen or a cigarette hole near the base. The top was made with a triple thick tin-foil bowl (yes, TGORM and friend know the risks of using tinfoil as a smoking device, however, it was a one time thing.) with 6-7 little holes poked in the foil. They covered the hole with a piece of duct tape, filled the bottle with good old H2O, put the 'bowl' on, then lit a lighter over the bowl as the tape was removed.

    Doing this results in a downward air flow as water flows out of the body of the device and is replaced with air from above the entry point, in this case, through a bowl packed with greenery. The hot air/flame from the lighter is drawn into the greenery, thusly causing combustion. Since air is still flowing downward, the smoke is trapped in the bottle. After a certain point, you can remove the flame if your bowl is cherried. When the water reaches the hole, cover it, remove your bowl, then use the (small) hole as a carb (tilt the bottle if there is too much water left), and empty that sucker.

    Ever seen yellow chalk dust? Thats the color or the smoke they produced with that piece.

    1) Waterfall is plugged, filled, and bowl fitted

    2) Apply lighter, remove plug, watch the happiness fill the bottle

    3) Remove the bowl piece and clear it.

    4) (not pictured) become glued to the couch
