What You’ll Need:
- Four 10-foot long ¾” PVC pipes
- Four T-joints
- Four 90-degree elbow joints
- Three end caps
- One threaded hose connector (we used a
- PVC cement
- Hand saw or jogsaw
- Drill with 1/16” drill bit
- Tape measure
Step 1: Have a grown-up make your cuts with the lengths below.
- 5′ (x4)
- 4′ (x2)
- 18″ (x4)
- 12″ (x2)
Step 2: Drill holes into the two 4′ pieces so the water can come out. We made a zigzag pattern.
Step 3: Go outside or in a well-ventilated area to start gluing. The PVC cement dries very quickly, so you have to work fast!
- To make the first bottom piece, glue the threaded connector + an 18″ piece + a T-joint + 12″ piece + a T-joint + 18″ piece + an end cap. Make the second bottom piece with the same pieces, but use end caps on both ends.
- Glue the four elbows onto the tops of the four 5′ pieces. Then glue the two 4′ pieces into the elbows.
- Glue the top pieces into the T-joints and let everything dry.
