    It's basically tap water with food coloring. I have 4 2 Liter bottles with red blue green yellow and depending on the glass that's what I add in.

    I generally add some food colouring to the water in my bubblers as well. I mix on the fly with whatever colour I'm feeling that day (or if I'm filming, colours I haven't used before/in a while).

    I love the contrast it provides and the additional variety to the experience.

    A 4 pack of colour will last month's mixing on the fly. If you make bottles worth as @jl420 has, a pack of colours could last a lifetime.

    I think I paid $2 per package - and I have regular and neon colours.

    Good idea for a thread OP! This helped me make up my mind what to use in a new piece.
    I can only get de-ionised water so far and I'm happy enough with the smell, looks, and the data sheet is available online.

    I'm glad my glass will now be cleaner looking than the stained stuff from science class back in the day!
    Just need to work out some ideal water changing and cleaning frequencies now...

    I just use tap water, but do the trick @t-dub pointed out to us a few years ago with adding some cranberry extract and a little citric acid to keep the glass nice and clean. Have never had any issues doing this and its kept my glass squeaky clean.

    Water water.

    I tried warm water, as someone here suggesterd, and I really like the experience — makes your vapour much less dry

    Distilled or R.O. filtered, along with alcohol-free cranberry extract. Planning to start adding Citric Acid as soon as I obtain a bag.

    Do it. I highly recommended it. :tup:

    Even using warm distilled water, NACE, & citric acid sour salt, I still get dem vape boogers using my Supreme and FlowerPot. Especially w/ concentrate sandwiches or twaxin. That's the price to pay I suppose for using those high octane vaporizers. :freak:

    Just curious, are there any benefits of adding citric acid/cranberry juice? Is it to improve the taste, or the effect, or............?

    Pretty sure the cranberry juice does what Piece water does, puts a slight film on the glass where it touches so when you wash with hot water, any bits stuck to side easily release due to the crap not being directly stuck to the glass.

    Citric acid crystals stops tap water (especially hard water) leaving those obvious water drips marks you see on the inside of the glass after its dried due to the chalk and lime or w/e is found in your water. (I use it to descale the inside of my kettle for example)

    i just use cooled down green tea with a squeeze of lemon juice,keeps it nice and clean and as bronchitis sufferer , it also helps the lungs stay happy and clean,with absolutely less infections.
    the anti oxidants in the tea are responsible for the later.
    hope this helps anyone out here on the forum.

    I just received my new easyflow bubbler and right off the bat, made the mistake of running tap water in it. Then I read this thread and realized the ill of my ways so I immediately gave it a soak in toilet water.


    J/k. I gave it an ISO soak and then final rinsed it with distilled water.
