Under water housing Answered

I have been looking for a cheap underwater housing for a camera. I can't find anything under $120.00 and I don't have access to plexiglass or acryclic. I am prefering under $20. Does anyone know how or what to do?

No access to plexiglass!!?? You might try heavy glass, and PVC. Or even large steel pipe and heavy glass. I imagine even regular glass would be good to 40 feet or so.
