    when i was younger my dad made me one but the slide was thinner and we had a sprinkler system down the sides of the slide all the way to the end that was fun

    This seems like one of those fun projects where I would never stop working on it. I'm already thinking about how you could add sprinklers down the sides, and a large water catchment area at the bottom that would recycle it and send it back to the top. Oh, you could also terraform the ground to add the side buffers and a small channel in the middle of the guide you down to the bottom, that would require some more work. set up really quick, something you could do annually. Very cool video, looks fun!

    They were probably hard to find, but the parts you ended up having to heat up in order to make them fit actually exist. Otherwise, I can't wait to make one of these!!!!

    Solution to everything. Just heat it up and jam it in

    Awesome project as usual, but a little warning to your viewers, it is not a good idea to burn pvc or it can release toxic fumes. It would be a better idea to use a heat gun (like for paint removal) to soften the pvc to change its size or shape. Otherwise have fun with it.

    Hey Bobby, just one suggestion…
    Don't heat the pvc pipes.. Just keep that part in boiling water for 2-3 min and pvc pipe will expand

    Oh that looks like so much fun! There's a hill in my backyard, but it's way too steep. Evil Knievel would like it though.

    I hate to be that guy, but I believe I heard from Bill over at Punished Props that heating PVC to the point where it browns it creates basically chlorine gas. Obviously it didn't seem to have an immediate effect on you, and I never fact checked that statement, just thought I'd throw it out there. In my experience PVC bends just fine even if not heated until it starts to brown.

    Anyway, really nice build! I may start some landscaping to get a little hill going… xD

    Dude, Dude, Dude! WTF, they sell all the adapters that go from pvc to cpvc. They also see regular hose 3/4 and 5/8 hose screw on adapters for $2.00 at home depot or lowes. I cringed the whole time you were ghetto rigging this together. Do a little research next time and save yourself a lot of time and effort.

    What a great project! Just as an FYI, it is essential to use clear plastic. I had setup a near identical slip n slide with black plastic and suffered from severe burns as a result of 170+ degree (F) temperature even with significant water flow.

    Love it! you didn't mention it but word to the wise: PVC is very bad for you when heated. PPE should be worn so stay safe and build on!

    Bob, I have a few friends that do this…and have for years. Their suggestion, is to not use dish soap. Use baby shampoo.

    I can only guess why…

    You should have used a heat gun instead of a torch

    Let's see a pic of that grass after all day under the plastic.

    "This part doesn't fit, so we're going to heat it up and jam it in there." So worthy of a T-shirt.

    Looks like loads of fun was had by all, including the biggest kid of them all…. LOL (Just Kidding)

    Just the ticket in the warm weather we all seem to be sharing at the moment. Nothing better than seeing children having a great time. Excellent video Bob. Thanks for sharing. All the best from North London. UK

    I Like To Make Stuff What was the total cost of your project. It seems it would cost close to a ,$100. Can you give a estimate.

    Bob that looks awesome. Great job. I've got the room to build one of those but I don't have a hill to use.
    Keep up the great work

    Thanks for sharing and God bless

    Great project Bob. I did something similar but used in ground sprinkler heads so I could manipulate the direction and spray pattern.
