Introduction: Trampoline Sprinkler
I created this for my kids to play with now that the temperature is getting hotter. It could be done cheaper. I spent about $20 on it. This is my first instructable so please bear with me. My trampoline is 14'. I got all my supplies at Home Depot.
Step 1: Assembling Tubing
I started with two 10' pieces of 1/2 flexible tubing (I think it is used for sprinkler systems). I connected them together with a little coupling and then duct taped the joint. I bought a plug for one end a adapter that went from the 1/2" to 3/4" (forgot to get a picture of). A water hose they said was 3/4". The problem is that the end of the water hose would have to be threaded into this coupling and so I would have to turn the entire water hose. To get around that I bought a quick release connector in the water hose section that allows me to pop the hose on and off much like a connection on air tools.
Step 2: Test Fit
Next I took my tubing out and strung it across the top of the netting and zip tied it to the poles like I wanted it and then make a few marks so I would know where the sides and bottom were.
Step 3: Attaching Sprinkler Nozzles
I took the tubing back off and down on the deck. I put one nozzle close to the middle and then put four down each side at 16" intervals. I took another piece of pvc pipe and did a test fit with my different drill bits to see what size fit the best. The first couple I wrapped with pink water tape but gave up on that half way through because they were so hard to get in.
Step 4: Playtime
Put the tubing back up and with zip ties, connect the water and enjoy. I control the output with the water valve. I have no idea how much water these put out but there is a big difference when I turn up the water at the valve, so I just run it on low and it is plenty for the kids to cool down with.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
Hello! I was wondering if you have a step by step for the Trampoline Ladder in this picture.
No, but you could just use 2x4's on the sides with 2x2 as the horizontal cross braces with 1x4's as the bottom vertical boards. Screw from the sides and from the bottom and you should be good to go.
