I have stocked Pulsar for a while now with a variety of herbal vaporisers, one hitters and dab rigs on offer in my Bondi Vape Store. They appear to have been around for quite some time now and house over 1000 different products at their facility in North Carolina. Consummate vapers and smokers, they love to innovate and create products that exceed expectations.
A unique design in the illustrious world of water pipes, specifically crafted for those that want added levels of water filtration. As the word implies, your smoke/water will recycle (move) from chamber back to chamber in a loop. Standard water pipes have one water chamber and you inhale your smoke directly once it has passed though the water chamber once. Unfortunately this does not cut it for a lot of long term smokers with more comfort required. In my experience there are 2 types that are drawn to these types of water pipes. Those that require as much help as they can get to moderate any harshness or my connoisseur customers who like to add to their growing collection of eccentric glassware.
Standing at 9” tall (23ish cms) this glass water pipe is rather elegant in its design. A great size too, not to big and not too small. Aesthetically this is a piece that will draw every eye in the room in its direction. Many will just want to admire its fine curves whilst other may want to marvel at the seamless wrapped around glass.
This Recycler Water Pipe is made from heavy duty borosilicate glass with an included 14mm, (removable and male) glass slide provided. For those unaware, a glass slide is a fancy term for a flower bowl. This bowl is on the larger side (bigger rips) and does not have a frosted port. There is a rounded portion jutting out to the side of bowl, this is a handle of sorts enabling you to safely pull out the flower bowl at any stage without risk of burning. If you like to clear out your chamber (post usage in lieu of a carb) by removing the bowl then you will really like this feature.
The bowl sits in place to the side and above the curved down stem. Curving down into the water chamber at the base. There are 2 round openings at the end of this stem, a diffusion down stem. Technically this water pipe is described as being stemless but what else should I call this fixed tube? In a nutshell diffusion down stems are simple glass tubes with slits/holes. You smoke will pass down the stem moving towards the holes whereby the smoke is “pushed” down into the water surrounding the stem. Your smoke is spread throughout the liquid as a multitude of smaller bubbles. Results = cooler, smoother and cleaner smoke.
Here’s where the fun (and recycling) begins! Recycling in the world of water pipes does not mean you have placed your pipe out for fortnightly rubbish collection along with your household glass/cans etc. In this case recycling refers to the functionality of this piece. Your smoke and water will move from chamber to chamber and back again. A never-ending loop of recycling as long as you are inhaling. This winding pathway coupled with extended water filtration will provide as cool an effect you can get without adding chunks of ice. In a “normal” water pipe any water moving up and out of the water chamber will cause splash back. Not so with a Recycler as the design shoots the water back down whilst allowing you to inhale your smoke.
TIP: The actual “Recycler Tubes” both sit on the outside of this glass water pipe adding to the visual appeal.
USAGE AND CLEANING
First step is the water. Remember not to overfill and I would do a practice inhale before using to see if any water splashes up and out onto your lips. Even though a Recycler is design to eradicate splash back I tend to always advise a test run first, just in case! At a minimum just ensure that the percolator sits within water but as this is a Recycler why not add a little more for extreme effects.
As for cleaning you will need to stay on top of keeping this Recycler clean. The more regular your cleaning regime the less headache for you. This is a piece that may require some overnight soaking in Isopropyl Alcohol (90% and above) particularly if the recycler tubes clog up.
