There's a longer video in step5, and also more freeze frame images showing the aquaglove shaped tube of water collapse.
Step 1: What you need
- Rubber gloves
- Hose pipe and water
- Plenty of outdoors space, well away from doors/anything electrical/sunbathers
- Strong reinforced tape. Duct tape is ideal
- Dachshund (optional)
Step 2: Construction
- The glove needs to be attached to the hose securely. When inflated to four feet long it will be heavy and under pretty high pressure. Use plenty of tape.
- Between 1" and 2" of glove needs to be wrapped around the hose end. Do not wrap too tightly. Place the hose in the middle of the glove opening and carefully wrap the two sides of rubber around it. Wrapping both sides of the glove opening in the same direction maintains the shape of the glove.
- Tape tightly around the twisted glove first, ensure the tape is smooth and then extend the tape down the hose about 2" to create a seal.
- Check the glove is not snagged on any loose tape and place on a large piece of lawn.
Step 3: Inflation
- Start off slowly, you may need to pick up the glove and untwist it once water fills it out
- Once underway the tap can be turned to full flow
