    Day after days, I see various comments about water level, specially about too much water. I think this question alone deserve a topic.

    More water
    Pros : diffusion, filtration, humidification
    Cons : drag, condensation, taste

    Less water
    Pros : taste, efficiency, air flow
    Cons : harsher

    I'm experimenting with my tree percs, it is easy to judge how far the water top is from the first diffusion hole. (I used to put a lot more before)

    So, how much water do you put in your pieces ?

    First thing in the morning I hit my rig pretty wet or excess water if you will. The added drag/washing effect helps me take things slow when I first wake up. Later on I run it on min drag max taste. Not to sound dramatic but my rig varies plus or minus 1oz of water. Less than a shot glass basicly. Beyond that it just not that efficient.

    I don't have a bubbler, just a 250ml Ehle straight tube, so i don't use much water to start. Still, i notice a difference between water levels causing that influence the same factors you reported Roger.

    I tend to use my water a little higher than when i first started, to get a smoother hit.

    Just above the trees seem to match my preferences for the moment

    For me with my HydraTree

    Low temps-->low water level
    Small loads-->low water level

    High temps+small load-->medium-low level

    Medium temp+medium load-->medium level


    High temps+big load-->high level!

    My bong barely takes any water, a few drops of water can make a pretty big difference. I tend to keep a little more water than is necessary for a smoother hit.

    Generally I use less water for dabs so there's less oil accumulation and more water when I vape because I like to cool off that hot vapor.

    I like to use a graduated cylinder to measure the fluid levels in ml once I get them where I like them. Makes mixing RezBlock easier as well :)
