    Hey guys,

    I was at the Denver Champs show a couple of months ago and met the owner of Piece Water at the Magic Flight booth. He was a good guy and sent me home with a sample to test out. It's made for smokers and keeps their bongs clean, but it turns out it works well for our applications here.

    I put some in my freshly cleaned test bubbler and used it about a dozen or so times over the course of a month (I know some of you just threw up in your mouth at that, but hang with me here). It made the water cloudy almost immediately after the first use and looked that way for the duration. After it being pretty spotless the whole time I decided to do some concentrate through it with the e-nano. Here's a pic of the bubbler before I changed the Piece Water for the first time.

    And here's a closeup of the same bubbler at the same time.

    You can see the glob on the side that got there from the concentrate. Before using the concentrate it was spotless inside with just flower use. So I figured the concentrate would send me to the ISO wash after rinsing. Instead, all I did was pour out the Piece Water and rinse the bubbler with hot water and this is how it turned out.

    No mold ever showed up during the test, and I never added anything to the Piece Water. Overall I was pretty impressed! Value is a personal thing, and I am sure there will be those that think it is worth it and those that think it is not, but what I wanted you guys to know is that it does work if you decide to give it a try. I like it and have some more on the way. I'm especially stoked about it being in my Pokeball bubbler since I can't see inside it. Having the Piece Water in there lets me know it is clean in there!

    For now the only places online I know of to get it are here:

    Does is add any extraneous taste or smell?

    Yes, I have used this stuff and found it had a very slight, indescribable taste on inhale and smell. Very slight.

    The bigger problem is that in my testing, it seems like what this stuff does is collects your reclaim in your water. Of course, it is not recoverable after this point, since the Piece Water is clearly labelled 'not for human consumption' and your claim seems to end up not on your glass, but in the piece water you spill down the sink when changing. I didn't try purging Piece Water from the reclaim and I wouldn't, the contents are not listed and without some high resolution analytical results, I'd not be confident in determining what the piece water even is to purge it! lol

    For those who don't mind sacrificing reclaim and don't notice/care about the slight taste/smell, this will work but IMHO, it costs a lot (only an absolute baller is going to be able to afford to both use this stuff and change it regularly - I am noticing this being super expensive and I own two sapphire e-nails!) and it sacrifices one of the great benefits of vaping/dabbing (reclaim). :2c:

    EDIT: One last point to consider is that if the water from your rig is able to fully dissolve your reclaim, it is certainly dissolving some of the content of your vapor as it comes through!

    Does it affect the function of pieces at all?

    Aside from what I said above, no. I have used it in 4 different rigs of various designs and the perc function was no problem, the piece water feels a bit 'heavier' but not in a way which noticeably influences the function IME.

    Cool that was my main concern, I wasn't sure on the viscosity of it and how it would affect a water pipe.

    It is a little thicker than water. I never picked up on any taste or smell, but I typically find that to be pretty personal.

    This product was designed for smoking with no consideration to vaping, so I would expect some downfalls for us like not being able to reclaim. I told them that if they get big enough to specialize in vaping that we would love to be able to scoop the reclaim off the top of the water with a cotton type of product.

    Also, there is a video of it on YouTube of it catching fire in a bong. That video is a spoof, but not marked very well, should you come across it.

    For people like me who are lazy about changing water, this stuff is great. Certainly not needed for the vaporist who changes his water every day or two.

    It's a cool idea but seems expensive when I rotate dab rigs on a daily basis! I keep my glass so clean with a steady rotation and 99.9% iso.
    I already get made fun of because I will drink filtered tap water BUT I only used bottled water in my expensive pieces. It reminds me of Deuce Bigalow When he pours Fiji bottled water in his fish tank and then drinks the brown water from his tap! lol.
    My girl told someone once not to grab the last Dasani and drink out of the tap because I needed it for bong water!! :rofl:
    Fuck hard water stains on a $500 piece of glass lol
