Nothing says backyard summer fun like running through the sprinkler!

Recently, I made a backyard sprinkler, using a soda bottle and a brass garden hose spigot. (See that one HERE.) It worked fine, but it got me thinking, "What would it take to make this even simpler and cheaper?"

In version two of the Soda Bottle Sprinkler, the only needed material is a soda bottle, and the tools are a heat gun, and the garden hose itself. 

Basically, all I did was heat the mouth of the soda bottle so that it would soften. Then I threaded it into the garden hose, so that the threads would naturally form to match.

For the full explanation and demonstration, please watch this video!

    Hey, you're right! The hose I used was one that was worn out or cut and had the end replaced on it with a female connection. A hose with a FEMALE connection on both ends is handy to have around for doing thing with pumps and other experimenting . Hoses that connect a washing machine to the wall water connection are this same style.
