I wanted to use the water pressure in a toilet basin to power a tiny waterfall effect in a zen garden that could grow plants with minimal effort. Since I love plants, but I hate maintenance, this project removes the need to regularly water your garden so long as you regularly flush the toilet. :) If you use plants with a natural perfume, you also eliminate the need for deodorant products for the bathroom, which come in all sorts of nasty formats like aerosol cans and disposable plastic diffusers. This project can be modified to suit your needs or your available materials.
If you enjoy this project, please remember to vote for me for the Epilog Challenge. Thank you!
Here are the materials you will need:
- rectangular planting pot
- rocks for drainage
- plastic tubing
- decorative rocks
- shallow plastic dish
- aquarium rocks (optional)
- glue gun
- waterproof (kitchen/bathroom) silicone
When selecting your tubing, you will want to chose a size that will fit snuggly over the tube that supplies the water in your toilet basin.
