Downstems are long tubes used in water filtration dab rigs to connect the bowl to the water source. The smoke moves from the bowl containing the concentrates through the down stem of your bong or bubbler and into the water for a light, clean, and smooth inhale.
Downstems work by carrying smoke from the slide (or bowl piece) into the water chamber of your glass pipe to filter and cool each hit. YThere is a variety of different sizes and lengths, so it is absolutely essential to know what you need before purchasing one.
Unline other glass accessories, downstems feature an extra measurement, the length, which is important when matching to your piece. When measuring the length of your downstem, make sure to start at the very bottom of the sandblasted segment and continue to the end, past the diffuser. If you measure the entire length of the glass accessory, you will get an inaccurate length and may purchase an incompatible downstem.
Downstems provide amazing percolation and because they are created with many different percolators, they enable smokers to customize their favorite glass bongs.
