I came up with this when I was house sitting for my parents and the basement started to flood. The original was made with a 5 gallon bucket. I have made two since and found that culligan style water jugs work better. I don't have one currently constructed, I am bored at work and piece this together with MS Paint. hehehe. But you should get the basic idea. This is my first Instructable, I've been reading instructables everyday, and I've been dying to post something. Hope this helps some of you out.
I use this same concept to piggy back 3 shop vacs together to get more suction once. My boss brought his boat out of the water this year with-out pumping out the septic tank. Of course we didn't want to ruin a shop-vac bu pumping sh** into it, and we were told that one shop vac didn't have enough pull. It worked great unfortunately we didn't get any pictures. Happy Sucking!!
