Prism Water Pipes was created to accomplish a few simple, but important goals. To modify the water pipe to not only change up the game, but to eliminate issues based around cleanliness, glass replacement, and to open up a whole world of opportunities around modifications, modularity, and customization.
In this ever-changing world, nobody wants to be stuck with one option. Convenience is key, and your water pipe should be as unique as you are.
One day many moons ago, Shane the founder of Prism, lived with a bunch of college guys and OF COURSE they had a house bong. As faithful and as useful as this bong was, Shane noticed a few reoccurring issues:
Cleaning it was near impossible and thus rarely done. (6 guys, one bong...you do the math *shrieks*)
When cleaning actually DID happen, you needed makeshift tools like a toothbrush fastened to a wooden rod to reach those hard-to-reach places. Yes we've all been there . . .
The worst one, a clumsy roommate dropping the bong, and it’s gone forever. Even if just the joint breaks or a part on the percolator . . .
This made Shane ask, “Why the hell are we doing this to ourselves?” The cost of a quality new bong can be expensive and very wasteful. There needed to be a better way, and modularity just made the most sense.
Fast forward eight years to 2019, with an engineering degree and a ton of research about modular bongs, Shane knew he could design something that could change the way we smoke forever. He brought on Sara (his fiancé at the time) and together they brought the vision into reality; a modern modular bong that is easy to clean, easy to store, inexpensive to replace, and customizable to meet the needs of every smoker.
One and half years later and in comes Covid. Shane and Sara were kicked out of their little rented shop in Delaware in the height of the 420 season with a ton of open orders. Freaking out and not realizing it was a blessing in disguise, they hopped in their car and drove across the country to California to buy Prism’s first lathe. 5,400 miles later with some really swollen ankles from sitting in a car for a week straight, they were back setting up their own shop in North Philadelphia where they reside today. Along with this big change for Prism, they also brought on two new partners during this time, Eliot and yes another Shane (we call him Naked Shane). With the addition of two more sets of hands running the show, Prism has been able to grow and be as creative as ever.
Prism has also paired up with some very talented graphic artists to bring you some EPIC decal designs. Some of them arePretty Done,En.zy,Dope as Usual,Kickstep, andDoodle by Meg. By collaborating with artists, Prism has been able to take the modular bong world to the next level allowing an unimaginable amount of creative designs and setups that truly look like a piece of art.

Growth knows no bounds for the team and designing new pieces and improving old ones is considered a happily accepted challenge. Game on, Fam!
