    No, it's not a bong.
    but feel free to use it how you see fit.
    All you need is a 2L Fanta bottle, a 1L sodawater bottle (all plastic), some plastic pipe, an old submergable pump and silicone.

    After a GOOD cleaning, I'm sure we can use it as a bong though? ;)

    hehe, fact is, whether you make it to be used as a skimmer, or as a bong, the whole act probably stems out of boredom...:)

    very cool.. how does the ''skimmer cup'' separate from the main body? does it screw with the blue cap or is it just loose?
    lol a bong that size will transform you into a clown fish

    It just sits on top - the design must be kept simple for potentially stoned users:whistling:

    Jah Bless the Herb. Its a holy sacrament, regardless of origin, strain or growth medium, respect it, when u burn the chalice, or ingest, use it to burn out evil, and meditate on right and rigteousness.
