A plastic bucket can be used as housing for a variety of homemade equipment that make life easier. Many make it a cyclone for a vacuum cleaner, but a bucket can be applied for the implementation of the more unusual projects.
Idea 1: Hand washing machine
This home will allow you to erase things easier than by hand, although it provides for a manual drive. It will require a bucket and a plunger. In the lid of the bucket the hole is drilled at 1-2 mm wider than the diameter of the handle of the plunger.
Then you need to make perforations in the rubber part of the plunger.
Bay in a bucket of water and poured it in the powder, you can wash, whisking plunger reciprocating movements. The cover will prevent splashing of water.
Idea 2: Portable air filter
To reduce the amount of suspended matter in the air of the room to collect the air filter. To this end, the bucket is perforated with a crown of 20-40 mm. In the lid is cut a hole under the fan housing.
After that, the inside of the bucket is fixed the filter pad and cover set the fan blowing out. Thus, the intake to the filter, the flow will leave the dust on the carpet, and the outside will be able to reach clean air.
Idea 3: Sink for camping
To make the sink, you will need 2 buckets. One will serve as a housing, and the second bottom of the sink. The system will be equipped with two spout. One can operate from an internal supply of water in the sink, and the second from the external tank.
On top of the bucket cuts into the side 2 of the gander is made of PVC pipes and elbows. For spraying water, they shall be closed with plugs with perforation. One spout connect hose to the aquarium pump. That, in turn, is placed on the bottom of the bucket where you will need to add water. Spout is equipped with a second exit to the outside for connection to an external water source.
Then in a bucket of gander inserted cut off the bottom of the second bucket. In it is drilled a hole through the pipe with a hose for drainage sewage. The pipe is conducted outside the basin. Thus, the shell can run when you turn on the pump by supplying flooded with water, or when connecting to a second gander of the external tank. In this dirty runoff will flow down the drain to the outside.
Idea 4: The Cool Box
If you put in a bucket big foam pot with a lid, you get a capacious cool box. Partially filling it with ice, inside can be folded up drinks or ice cream to take them along for the ride.
Idea 5: shower for camping
For this idea you need to solder one of claims or glue PVC pipes rack. It consists of 4 upright tubes with the knees, connected by a crossbar. Two pipes are installed plugs. Stand is done under the width and height of the bucket. It is placed in the bucket. Then is attracted to its walls with cable ties through pre-drilled holes.
One unclosed tube set adapter for garden hose. The second of them extends a gander at the end of which is mounted a drilled end cap, serving as a spray. Cuts in the spout of the ball valve. Coupling between the bar and the gander must be threaded to disassemble design for compact storage. This shower can operate from a pump or tank.
Idea 6: Air Conditioning
To make a portable air conditioner, you need to install in a bucket of the foam pot of the right size and drill the Assembly holes 3 with a diameter of 50 mm. Then they inserted segments of plastic pipe.
Then you need to cut in the bucket lid hole for the fan. The foam inside the pot is put ice or cold accumulator.
It then starts the fan blowing inside the bucket. As a result, the air outlet of the tubes will be cooler. Sending on the flow, you can more comfortably wait out the heat of the day.
Idea 7: 3 in 1 cooler, humidifier and air purifier
To collect air, does not require pre-cooling the battery is cold or freezing ice, you need to make a crown perforation of the walls in the upper half of the bucket. Then inside its walls shifted absorbent Mat, and a bucket filled with water to the perforations.
The water is placed the aquarium pump. It connects to the hose that should be routed on the top edge of the Mat. Then, in the hose making holes to let the water out of it emerged on the Mat. Its edge is clamped.
The bucket is closed by a lid with embedded fan. He should blow the air out.
This system provides the active evaporation of water from the Mat, whereby the air blown out will be colder than the room. In addition, the art project allows you to moisturize dry air, and very effectively collects the dust.
