    Backyard Dunk Tank

    The dunk tank worked great. Well, at least until a couple kids got too rough with the trigger arm and broke the bracket away from the bottom. Nothing we can't fix. Here is a picture of our school principal getting soaked.

    Backyard Dunk Tank

    Our valve only came with 1 white gasket. We used 2 (replaced the white gasket) hose gaskets. The valve tightened up and does not turn. We tested it and everything works great. The kids will love it. Thanks

    We are making this for our kids school. Everything works great except.....We purchased the tank mounted fill valve you recommended. When everything is hooked up, the weight of the hose causes the fill valve to turn. This causes the float ball to either touch the bucket wall or make contact with the flapper. We have even tried to zip tie the hose to the pvc frame. I have tried silicone but that didn't work either.Do you have any suggestions on how to keep the float valve from turning?Thanks
