Description:

This is a connector that joins a plastic soft drink bottle to your standard hose connection. It can be used so that you can make a custom sprinkler where you control the pattern of water and where it is sprayed, great if you only want to do a section of your lawn or you have an oddly shaped lawn/garden.
Print out the connector and add an o ring (optional, gives a better seal) and then screw it onto the bottle you wish to use. Pierce the bottle in the sprinkler pattern you want (using a sharp object or drill, be vary careful and take appropriate safety measures). Then simply attach the connector and bottle to the hose connection as usual.
