Why do bongs have a carb?
A carb hole is the most often used while smoking out of the glass bong that is not equipped with a pull out glass on glass bowl and slider. Therefore, instead of pulling out the slide you firstly cover the carb hole with your finger and once the chamber is full of smoke you take the finger off and inhale. Carb holes are the most often placed on the back side of the bong or on the left side.
Carb hole bongs are usually cheaper than the glass on glass bongs. The reason is that making glass on glass bongs is more laborious and also the bongs with a pull out slide and without a carb give stronger hits. However water bongs made with a carb hole are still very popular.
A carb hole also called shot hole, carburator, choke, rush hole and other is a small hole usually on each glass pipe and some glass water bongs. A carb hole has an important function of clearing the smoke out of the chamber.
