Step 1: Asembling the Tank

The first part is the tank. your tank needs to be made of black pipe otherwise it will explode when you pump it.

1.first take the end cap and drill a 5/8 in. hole in it
2.attach the valve stem and tighten in place
3.screw the end cap to the 3' long 2" (or 1 1/2) pipe
4.use the 1" male to 1 1/2" or 2" female black pipe bushing to attach the anti-siphon valve to the 3' long 2" (or 1 1/2) pipe

Step 2: Wiring

here is how I did the wiring

Part of me wants to build one of these with an identical white pipe for the pressure chamber. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you probably did that already and it didn't go so well.
