PVC Sprinkler #thriftythursday

Inspired by Pinterest, and bores with the summer already, my kids and I set out on a mission to make a backyard summer fun station.

Enter, PVC Sprinklers!

We set out on a mission to our local hardware store and $20 later we have a sprinkler tunnel. Note: I used 1/2 inch pipe and connectors.

Supplies:
4 – 5 foot pieces of plastic PVC pipe
2 – 10 foot pieces of plastic PVC pipe
4 – T connectors
1 – Elbow connector with a thread on one side.

Using your trusty kitchen knife (or saw doe you sophisticated folk), measure 2 foot on the end of each 10 ft pipe and cut.

Then, using your drill, drill holes every few inches on your two foot pieces and your now 8 foot pieces.

Snap the t connectors on the end of each 5 foot piece, then put a two foot piece and a 10 foot piece in two of the 5 foot pieces.

Snap it together to make a rectangle.

We are going to go get a couple more pieces to make feet on ours because the ground isn’t level, thus it isn’t sturdy. Your threaded elbow goes on one bottom piece and your hose screws into that.
