When I first showed Troy the pictures on Pinterest he thought I was crazy....then after I explained to him that it was just PVC pipe I think he jumped on board - either that or it was when he got to Lowe's and realized that it really wasn't super uber expensive.
I used the directions from HERE, but changed it a bit. They had a swivel door to say on and off, well I knew we didn't need it, nor would use it, so I adjusted that one cut, so I had two 5' pieces. We also went on our own with where to drill the holes for the water.
Troy and Owen worked hard to measure all the cuts and make sure the cuts stayed on point.
Then it was time to put all the pieces together - it did recommend using PVC paste - but we did not, I wanted to be able to take it apart for storage.
Next, we had to decorate it of course!! We just used pool noodles and dollar store sponges, I figured the decorations would not last long, so I did not want to put a lot of money into it.
Then, we had to test it of course.....
O was out with a friend, so we let B test it out....she loved it!
This is a project that the whole family worked on and I think that is why I love it so much!
