How to Measure Joints & Downstems
Have you ever cracked or even shattered completely, the bowl or banger to your favorite water bong or dab rig? Thankfully your water pipe is still totally intact, but now you have no way of using it since you never had any other extra accessory pieces besides that one, awesome one that it came with. 💔 Well worry not, dear canna fam! KING's Pipe is here to save the day!
Joint Sizes and Types
Now for starters, the 3 basic joint sizes are 10mm, 14mm, & 18.8mm/19mm; while their genders are Male or Female. To find out what bowl or nail you will need for your water pipe, you must measure the inner diameter with a ruler like this:
For gender, always remember that you will need to get any accessories with the opposite gender as your water pipe! For example, for a glass bong with a 14mm Female joint, you will need to get accessories that are 14mm MALE. If you have a 10mm Male dab rig, you will need a nail that's 10mm FEMALE to fit over your rig's Female joint.
Another commonly dropped or broken piece is detachable downstems. Downstems are a bong's default percolator and have a tendency to stay stuck to a bowl at times, resulting in that dreadful shattering sound while we take a rip! We've all been through it, and it never gets any less sucky lol Here are the quick and easy steps to finding out what length, size, & gender your replacement downstem needs to be:
