Downstems are an important part of most bongs and water pipes. Downstems provide a bath for the smoke to travel from the bowl to the water in the base of your pipe. When the smoke travels through water it is filtered, creating a cleaner, smoother smoking experience.
Downstems come in a variety of sizes, materials and with several different features. Standard downstems typically fit 9mm or 12mm standard slides and glass on glass downstems fit 10mm, 14mm, or 18mm bowls and accessories. Downstems are available in glass, silicone and metal all having their own unique benefits.
It is important to know the length and joint sizes you need while searching for a replacement downstem. However, if you're not sure of the length you need you can always check out an adjustable length downstem such as GRAV's Adjustable Downstem. Additionally, if you don't know joint sizes or if you want a downstem that can be used for several pipes you might want to check out Ace Labz' Titan Stem.
No matter the size, length, or material you're looking for, you can shop SMOKEA for a wide selection of replacement downstems and get your bong working the way it should be.
