DIY PVC Water Fun

By Classy Clutter on May 03, 2012
We don't have a pool but here in AZ we need some water fun! I have seen some PVC water sprinklers before, but the husband and I wanted to take it to a whole new level. For around $30 we were able to create this water tunnel that will keep us cool through out the summer. 


 Kyle, my husband used: 
100' of 1/2" Schedule 40 PVC Pipe 
1- 1/2" solvent by 3/4" male PVC adapter
1- Brass 3/4 female N.P.T. by female hose bib adapter
7- 1/2" PVC Tee's
10- 1/2" PVC 90's
2- 1/2" PVC 4 Way Tee's
Clear PVC Glue
PVC Pipe Cutters
Teflon Tape
Tape Measure
Drill with 5/16" drill bit

The 100' of pipe may be a little more or less than you need depending on how high, long, and wide you choose to make the sprinkler. Its always a good idea to buy a few more of each fitting for mistakes and any changes you may want to make.






My girls and all the neighborhood kids are having the best time with this new toy! This project took about an hour total to put together and then an hour for the glue to dry!
Everyone needs to build one of these!
