Introduction: Poor Man's Water Rocket

About: Not much to say, I'm a simple person that enjoys experimenting with things, tinkering with electronics, and doing DIYs.

In this instructables you will be taught how to make a basic rocket out of a water bottle and source of pressurized water. Hope you enjoy :D

Step 1: Materials

For this project you will need the following:
-Empty water bottle
-Pressurized water source such as a garden hose or a park fountain. (preferably anything outdoors to avoid messes and accidents)

Step 2: Setting It Up

Place the bottle over your water source and fill it with water. Don't fret over some water spilling out but make sure it isn't a river flowing towards you (no drowning please). It seams a park fountain works better since it creates a better seal. Hold the bottle on the water source for about 30-45 seconds, then release.

Step 3: Enjoy

If done right, it should look like this (don't mind the retardness):
