Ash catchers enable even the most relaxed smokers to keep their favorite water pipes and daily drivers cleaner! They work as a vessel to catch any dirty residue and other byproducts of smoking leading to bigger and better hits from your favorite bong.
Ash catchers are loaded with scientific percs to filter your smoke before it hits the main chamber and percolator of your water pipe. More percs = better and smoother rips!

First: Joint Size
Glass on glass water pipe joint sizes has been made standard since their creation and can be made of the following three sizes
If you have a liladelph water pipe with a 14mm joint, you could only purchase a liladelph ash catcher of the same size unless you use an adapter. We strongly recommend against the use of adapters for ash catchers as they add weight and can complicate easy and simple setups.
Second: Joint Gender
Water pipe joints come in male and female and need to be paired with their respective counterpart like for example if you have a 14mm male joint on your liladelph tube you would need a 14mm female joint on your liladelph ash catcher. This will allow the the 14mm male joint on the liladelph tube to sit on the 14mm female liladelph ash catcher joint for that perfect fit!
Third: Joint Angle
Water pipe joints are set up either in a 45 degree or 90 degree angle. Like the joint sizes, theses also much match. So, if your favorite liladelph tube has a 14mm male joint that sits at a 90 degree angle, you must purchase a 14mm liladelph ash catcher with a 90 degree female joint. If you were to purchase a 45 degree, it will not fit your tube.
Extra Tip: Weight
In important extra tip for picking your ash catcher is weight! If you have a small water pipe standing less than ten inches, you can't purchase a huge six inch tall ash catcher. This is because the ash catcher would make your piece top-heavy, increasing the chances of an accident or breakage. On the opposite end of the spectrum, huge bongs are usually paired with large ash catchers to keep consistent of the looks.Make sure to keep the size and sturdiness of your bong in mind when purchasing an ash catcher to prevent any risky situations! Remember, ash catchers were mainly designed to be used with flower tubes. The nature of concentrates and recent trends towards nano rigs prevent ash catchers from being ideal for oil setups.
