    With my bubbler, by the time I finally have the bubbler filled with vapor, my lungs are about full. Is it okay to blow out that air and then clear the rest of the vapor in the bubbler? Or will i lose some of the vapor?

    Yes, you should be fine

    The most important thing to remember is that vapor condenses faster in cold water/glass - use warm water in a warm room to reduce condensation. Also don't let it sit long, less than 20 or 30 seconds - no more than minute.

    My suggestion, your lungs are full and the bubbler still has vapor in it: hold your hit for a few seconds, then exhale BUT only enough to make room for the bubbler vapor (like 10% of your lungs), then inhale the bubbler vapor and hold.

    Interesting! I like those ideas! So warm water... hm... seems to kind of defeat the purpose for cooling the vapor down lol

    You're trying to moisten the vapour rather than cool it...

    Well, yeah I guess so, but warm water will add a lot more moisture to the vapour than cold. This has a more soothing effect and makes the vapour less harsh than just cooling it by passing it through cold water. Try it ;)

    The general thought for water is. Smoke = Cold water. Vapor = Warm water. Think Vapor conditioning, rather than "cooling".

    Yes, X2.
    Needs humidity more than it needs cooling. Especially since cooling makes vapor condense, which you don't want.

    I have to do the same with water tools, milk it out exhale take a breath then exhale before clearing that piece.

    Never felt like the time it took to exhale and inhale once or twice would allow that much vapor to escape and if a tiny bit did get away it is still way better then coughing my ass off and wasting it that way.

    :2c:...:peace:
