- Fill your water pipe with water so that any percs in the piece are covered by about 1-2 inches of water. Some pieces need more due to how the water moves in the piece.

- Place the bud into the slide/bowl and pack it so it is tight but also so air can get through.
- Place the slide in or on the downstem.
- Use a lighter to light the bud in the bowl while inhaling through the mouthpiece on the water pipe. Pull steadily so the water bubbles consistently and smoke fills the water pipe.
- To clear the chamber, Pull out the slide out of the downstem and inhale quickly. All the smoke should rush through the chamber and the water should bubble even more.
- Replace the bowl when finished clearing the chamber and repeat these steps until satisfied
