The fundamental structure of a conventional glass water pipe can be elucidated as follows:
The bowl is the enlarged attachment where the dried form of tobacco undergoes combustion. It is almost always detachable, permitting the function as a convenient pull-out or sliding carburetor.
The carb which is an abbreviated form of the carburetor is a minute hole that enables the smoker to be able to clear the entire chamber of smoke. Generally, the most common form of carb that appears on glass bongs is a pull-out or slide-out carb, which is opened when the bowl is detached from the device.
The downstream is the minute tube that has the smoke travel conveniently from the bowl to the base, where it gradually filters through water and is purified.
The base forms the very foundation of a glass water pipe and comes in a variety of shapes, mainly based on the style of the bong. The chamber containing water is often shaped in the triangular or circular shape, in which the smoke is gradually cooled with its passage through the water.
The tube, which ends in the structure through which the smoke is inhaled, is the chamber that fills with smoke after it has filtered through the water. Other extra features are often included while the tube is designed.
