DIY PVC Pipe Pool Caddy
- 6, 10 foot long PVC pipes (I recommend 1 ¼ inch thick, but you can also use 1” thick)
- 20, PVC Pipe “T” fittings
- 6, 90° PVC pipe “elbow” fittings
- 4, 45° PVC pipe “elbow” fittings
- 4 ½ inch PVC pipes
- 14 T fittings
- 1 stick of 1/2" pvc
- 2 ninety degree elbows
- Some plumbers tape
- PVC glue
- Female hose to 1/2" adapter
- Inline flow valve
- 1/2" slip to thread adapter
- shower head and arm
- 4 or 5 twelve inch zip ties
- 2 four footers (these are the "skis" the bit that touches the ground)
- 2 one footers (these are the "sled" part, the bit that goes up at an angle from the ski)
- 2 four inchers (to continue the sled part up)
- 7 three footers (these are the crosspieces, you need 8 of these if you add noodle storage)
- The uprights in the back are dividing into three sections each. A one footer at the bottom and a one footer at the top, the middle bit is 32 inches, so you will need: 4 one footers and 2 thirty two inchers
- The diagonals are made of 1-27 inch piece, and 4 nine and a half inch pieces. So you'll need: 2 twenty seven inchers and 8 nine and a half inchers
- All that's left is the little bit at the top that goes from the upright to the diagonal. That piece is 6 inches. So you need: 2 six inchers
- Directions for rack: Assemble as shown in the photo!
Directions for shower:
- Sand all your joints first, glue them well and hold each joint for 30 seconds or so.
- Aim it in whatever direction you want and zip-tie to the caddy for extra support.
- Make sure you wrap each threaded joint with plumbers tape at least 5 times or it will leak!
