Introduction: How to Make a Dry Ice Fountain!

Picture of How to Make a Dry Ice Fountain!

Today I was just fooling around with dry ice and I thought that the dry ice vapor combined with water could make a fountain. But now I present you with... The Dry Ice Water Fountain v.1.0! 

P.S. This is my first Instructable.(Yay!)

Step 1: Get Your Supplies

Picture of Get Your Supplies

A length of threaded PVC that sticks out about 6" from the top of the bottle
A shrub sprinkler head
A 2 liter bottle
A screwdriver
Some Dry Ice

Step 2: Disassemble Your Sprinkler Head

First, twist the top off. You should have 3 parts, the body, the grate thingy, and the head. You will notic a screw in the head; take the screw out and put it in your parts bin. You should also remove the grate thingy.

Step 3: Reassemble Your Sprinkler Head

Screw the top back on and screw the entire sprinkler onto the threaded piece of PVC pipe

Step 4: Prepping the Bottle

First, take your bottle and fill it with water. Then add abot a cupfull of dry ice chunks or pellets.

Step 5: The Finale

Now for the fun bit, take your PVC pipe and shove it down until it is almost touching the bottom, and...stand back! ( Unless you want to chill off on a hot summer day, that also fine)

Well done. Overall the picture quality was is quite good but I would suggest editing it and rotating the main and final picture to the proper orientation and doing this on all future instructables. Personally I also like to give warnings when my instructables include dangerous materials or tasks. Just a simple reminder of the dangers of dry ice could potentially save someone who doesn't know better from injuring themselves.

Overall, good job and welcome to the publishers club! Remember you can get some swag from THIS group, if you haven't already. Looking forward to seeing more projects in the future!

Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate your advice and safety and picture rotation is on the top of my checklist now

-Thanks,
