    Thanks ! They are almost new, I changed them a couple weeks ago. It's always leaking a little from the part where the contact is metal/metal
    I'm leaking a lot more vapors from my mouth when I exhale :p

    I apologize if it's in the thread here somewhere, but would anyone be able to tell me the diameter of tubing I would need to connect to the top of the easy valve chamber to create a whip? Much appreciated! :tup:

    Hello Tweek
    I'm really interested in that too
    You want to connect to a bong or direct draw ?

    Hey Cash,

    Yeah, I would like to try both methods. I have seen it done, but they never post the tubing size; at least not where I have been looking.

    Just got a free (sort of) Volcano! A friend of mine is leaving the country for work and has asked me to look after hers until she gets back.

    It's been a long time since I've used a Volcano.

    I really want to fire it up but I seem to have come down with a flu and I don't think the dry air would help me today :|

    I have been through a very long and at times frustrating experience with my volcano over the last few months, but i can happily say that with sending it off 3 times to get it fixed ( One of the best customer services ever btw ) I have ended up with been given a brand new replacement unit after my old-faithful' first units orange light started to fail ( with no heating to match ) - apparently a rare case, but i couldn't be happier with the outcome.:)


    I had used my old unit nearly every day for coming up to 3 years ( warranty was nearly over )
    It had some party wear n tear with various accidents occuring, like when inexperienced users forgot to put the top gauze in the chamber and it blew everywhere or where they left the chamber on top for ages after(becoming red hot), or left the fan going afterwards for a good while cos the music was so loud that they couldn't even hear it was on lol.:disgust:

    The new unit has a much more powerful pump - the heating feels much more efficient and hotter at lower temps than the old one
    it seems to have a different updated design on the bottom with a weird plastic bubble and 4 more rubber legs to keep it more stable.:tup:

    I have been using a cheap black leaf copy of Luke Wilson 10 arm perc to moisturize the hits...
    Have just built a new PC after been computer less for a month and boy, everything feels like its coming together!:rofl:

    Time for a volcano i think...

    Peace out :peace:

    Nice that they sent you a brand new unit ! That's good to know, its making me even more secure about my old choice. Finally, bags are awesome for one thing : Zero draw. Can't have to pump like hell to get medicated.

    Can you post some pictures like new / old ?

    I love the Zero draw factor and this is one of the things that got on my nerves with the thermovape, the volcano hits the spot with every bag if one is experienced and knows exactly how to get the best out there starting material

    no sweat, remember, that tubing is really stretchy so it fits well over the easy valve. if you get non-pliable tubing, i would use the measurements of the steel nozzle on the top of the easy valve. good luck!

    Just made myself kind of a travel kit, cause I still got some friends who don't own a vaporizer; and for carrying around I figure the Volcano too precious.
    So I got me this Steinel 2010 Heat Gun at the hardware store for 50 € [it has its pros to be German sometimes]. Works like a charm so far.

    Gotta Love it when you run out of everything and you give the solid valve cone shaped piece coated in golden oil a scrape and coat a clean gauze ready for vaping ( with a clean screen underneath and at a nice high temp )

    :) heaven

    A friend used to have the Volcano Classic when it was new still and that thing would get used like crazy... a group of us would go under a heavy blanket and let the volcano run loose w/ a full bowl, no bag, and a slightly higher temp... we would just talk shit and whatever while a vapor pillar flowed out... we would let it finish and sit for a few more mins and get out.... id feel pretty High before we would get out but once you get a breath of fresh cold air you feel 2x as High, instantly hahaa... Memories... a cool way to use the volcano.. i wonder what ever happened to that thing i think its still sitting around actually...

    As I'm waiting for my minivap to come back, I search for ways to improve my experience on the volcano while saving on herbs.
    I found that you could get a satisfying thick balloon from a really small load, around 35 milligrams of dry indoor herbs. Grind the material really fine and spread evenly on the chamber, avoiding the center, push the volcano to the maximum temperature, then inflate for around 12 seconds. Almost all the goods are extracted in once. The balloon is small, you take small hits so you waste less

    My classic gets pretty darn hot. I think you risk melting plastic parts if you make it hotter.

    Just curious, what's the largest Volcano bag you guys have used? I'm tempted to make a big one but wanted to get some advice.

    I have done a six foot bag with two volcanos. The bag was filled at both ends at the same time. Two peeps could hit it at the same time. Good times!

    I have made a four foot bag and was able to get a thick fill that completely drained the chamber.

    Hello, I just got a volcanio easy valve I bought it second hand nearly new but the bag is not attatched to the orange peice and after trying to figgure it out a while and wanting to get high I just wrapped it around and put the oring around it. It looks like a tobbaco stick with a gunny sack drawed around it. What is the correct way. I almost feel like I am missing a part or something. All the easy bags I see even on storz and bickel are neatly connected.
