Silicone water pipes are great for anyone nervous about breaking glass, especially people with pets or with many roommates. Silicone pieces are becoming more popular and Climax is offering a variety of different silicone pieces including straight neck water pipes, beaker water pipes, hand pipes, bubblers, nectar collectors, and more! It is important to note that most of the silicone pieces contain a small area of glass, usually the bowl area, but it is more difficult to break compared to glass pieces as the bowl is surrounded by silicone. It is also great to know that if the glass area does happen to break, it is extremely affordable (under $25) to get a replacement part rather than having to buy an entirely new piece. Possibly one of the greatest features of silicone pieces is the ease of cleaning them. All silicone pieces at Climax are dishwasher safe and can be cleaned in a standard dishwasher cycle. No mess, cleaners, or scrubbing. Many of the larger silicone pieces deconstruct into smaller sections to make the piece even easier to clean and ensure that all the hard to reach areas are properly cleaned. While some people feel there is a stigma that glass pieces are superior to silicone, many of our customers have been pleasantly surprised by the functionality of the silicone pieces- they are definitely worth a try!
