Ashcatchers (also known as precoolers) aren’t some novelty, they are one of the coolest and most helpful accessories you can add to your water pipe, no matter what your smoking style. There are a number of advantages to using this simple add-on. They enhance the smoothness of the draw, they can “upgrade” an old piece to add modern percolation features, and perhaps most importantly, an ashcatcher is an invaluable tool when it comes to keeping your water pipe clean. Simply put, an ashcatcher is a miniature water pipe that fits onto a larger pipe in the same joint where the bowl normally goes. Once the ashcatcher is connected, the bowl is then placed in the ashcatcher, rather than directly into the pipe itself. They literally catch the ash rather than having it enter into and dirty up your pipe. So rather than cleaning a whole pipe, you can simply clean your ashcatcher and keep your bong looking and smoking great.
The most basic feature any ashcatcher will offer is an extra chamber with water to pre cool your smoke before it enters the actual pipe (hence the name precooler). Most of the ashcatchers we offer also contain percolators in their single chamber. Whatever type of percolator you like, you can find it in an ashcatcher: honeycomb percs, tree percs, spore percs, bullet percs, button percs, matrix percs... the list goes on and on. Please note that the two main options are either 90 degree or 45 degree arms.
