I know its silly but I’m so excited about this project! It was simple, cheap and green! Can’t get better than that.
Here is how easy it was I’m only going to show you 3 pictures.
Rubber Gasket squares (in the plumbing repair section)
Nut for back of faucet
Large Trash Can (previous owners left this behind)
So here is how simple it is:
Use the screwdriver to poke a hole in the bottom of the trash can and then cut a hole smaller than the faucet with the tin snips.
Cut the rubber in to 2×2 squares, trace the faucet and then cut a hole inside the line, for a tight fight.
Then put it all together:
Have 2 rubber gaskets on the outside of the faucet and 2 on the inside. Attach with the nut
Cut a piece of screen and tie it around the top for bug protection.
Place on top of 16 inch cement blocks for ease of filling your watering can.
Plans for the future:
- I’m going to run one of those black flex gutters from the downspout to a hole cut in the trash can lid.
- Right now leaking isn’t a problem, but I may add a bit of calking just incase.
