In this project you'll learn how to make a customizable PVC hand pump that will create vacuum suction, pump water, or compress air.
A pre-requisite to making the pump will be 2 homemade check valves. You can learn how to make these cheap PVC check valves here!
Step 1: Watch the Video!
WARNING: Power tools, like a table saw, pose risks of serious injury. Adequate training and experience are required before operating. The results and claims of this pump are based solely on my personal experiences with the one demonstrated in the video. Individual results may vary. The pump is a simple design and not made, or claimed, to be used in any heavy duty operations, or relatively high pressures. Use of this content is at your own risk.
