Watering can No stress

Picture of Watering can No stress
This instructable arises from the need to have something that is halfway between a watering can traditional and a rubber for water, combining the advantages of one to the other without presenting large incidents.
It's a watering can that is continuously fed through a rubber
the water that fills continuously but that, if we stop to rest for a bit until you upload is full and no overflows.

Step 3: And mounting

And now it is time to change the clipped to host the valve; as first I created a bore diameter appropriate to entry the tube which will subsequently the final fitting screwed male to which goes every time docked fitting female adduction of the feeding tube.
For a proper keeping of hole I put two seals including one in the internal and external to the one that is also visible in Figure successive.

Step 5: The conclusions

 I know it is a semi serious idea but I liked the same built, and despite being a bit mad as what I think it may have its usefulness. What do you think?
Thanks for your attention and if you believe please vote for me! There I will be grateful
Goodbye to the next...

Even though this is essentially reinventing the wheel (it's known as a hose end sprayer - many variations) for the Macgyver aspect I'd have to say, brilliant. Who would have thought to add a toilet (wc) float to the can reservoir. This way you get the convenience of a hose end sprayer (never ending water supply), a shut off and a lower water pressure (the watering can itself).

Kudos.

Interesting, but you can buy  this weird thing to put on the end of the hose which sprays water all over the garden! :-)

Yes, I know. indeed with that tool does and is not even heavy as a watering can, however I wanted to prove himself to make it happen to have the satisfaction of water with the delicacy of the aspersorium and without having to load never.Thank you.

 I know that probably English is not a very familiar language to you, I would like to say that I really loved the way this comment is phrased. and I think this idea - of using the automatic valve shutoff of a WC(toilet) tank for any vessel is brilliant.

Thanks, you're human!
I've heard of those!
Cut the top off and have an always full water dish for pets, or in one of those capillary action watering trays.  I like.
 I love it! If you could find a quick release for the hose with a valve, it would be nice and portable, too.

A clever adaptation, the float is a nice touch. Any issues with the float when container is tipped?

Maybe consider installing a hose-bib on the container to shut the water off a backup if you're away from the house.

Yes, probably some small change can be helpful. Please note however, that is a realization experimental rather than a finished product. Thanks for the compliments to you.
