Ashcatchers, or ash catchers, are accessories for your water pipe that stop ash and other residues from entering into the pipe’s chamber. They can also serve as an extra filtration device. Instead of spending more time cleaning your glass pipe, ash catchers allow you to clean a much smaller unit. Their main function is to improve your smoking experience by keeping pipes significantly cleaner. Hits from your water pipe can even become smoother when using ashcatchers by producing more bubbles.
If you’re new to ashcatchers, you need to consider the size, angle, and gender of the joints. Pipes and glass ashcatchers can have either a female or male joint. For example, if your pipe has a female joint, it needs a male joint to fit inside it. If your pipe has a male joint, it would need a female joint to fit onto it. Size refers to the circumference around the joint in millimeters. If the joint is too big or too small, it won’t fit. For example, a 14mm joint would fit into a 14mm pipe. Common sizes are 10mm, 14mm, and 18mm. Lastly, joints are either at a 45 or 90-degree angle. If your pipe’s joint has a 90-degree angle, you need an ashcatcher with a 90-degree angle as well.
