Introduction: PVC Soaker Hose for Under $30
The PVC Soaker Hose, a cheap and easy way to water your garden
This idea was remixed from https://www.instructables.com/id/Veggie-Garden-Soaker-Hose-Irrigation/
Step 1: Supplies & Tools
You Will Need
7 ft. of 1 in. PVC Piping
Vice(Not Required But Recommended)
Heat Gun or Matches
Step 2: Drilling Into the PVC
Place the PVC into the vice(if you have one) and tighten
In roughly a straight line, make dots with a sharpie every 2-3 inches
The size of the drill bits depend on what you want the water flow to be, the bigger the drill bit, the fast water comes out
Drill through ONE side of the PVC on those dots
Step 3: Capping One End
With matches or a heat gun, heat one end of the PVC until it starts to turn black, then take the pliers and squeeze that end to try to close it(it may take a few times to close it all the way)It does not have to be a watertight seal, you just do not want water gushing out
As this was one of my first projects, I had not yet found a PVC cap. You can get one of these at almost any hardware store for under a dollar and will save you a lot of time. Simply place primer on the inside of the cap, and then some PVC cement and slide the cap onto the end of the PVC pipe.
Step 4: Hook Up to Hose
Put a little glue on the inside of the open end of the PVC
Screw the PVC onto a hose
Step 5: Your Done!
