It’s no secret that Texas summers can be utterly unbearable, but our Houston Texas plumbing services can help you create your own entertainment and cool down with a PVC pipe sprinkler!
Two 10-foot pieces of half inch PVC pipe
PVC hose to pipe connector
Four PVC elbow joints
A drill with 1/16 inch drill bit
PVC pipe cutting tool (optional)
First, cut the 10-foot pipes into four 4-foot pieces. Save the excess in the event that you need to make repairs later.
Then, drill holes along the length of each 4-foot pipe. Keep it interesting and play with the direction the holes are slanted, but make sure they are only on the top of the pipe.
Next, cut one 4-foot section of pipe in half to be joined with the hose connector and t-joint. Using the PVC cement, glue the t-joint, hose connector and the pieces of pipe together.
Glue the remaining pieces together using the elbow joints to connect each side and make a square. If you have time, consider grabbing more pieces and fashioning them into different shapes. Octagon anyone?
Finally, allow the PVC cement to dry and screw your garden hose into the hose connector piece. Turn on the hose, then enjoy! You can also easily store it by unscrewing the hose and tipping the sprinkler to drain the excess water.
Just like that! You get rid of excess PVC pipe in your home and water your lawn while also creating a fun activity that you and your family can enjoy in the dog days of summer.
If you have a plumbing problem pop up, don’t hesitate to call the AAA AUGER Houston Texas plumbing services to come out whether it’s 40 or 90 degrees outside!
