Sprinkler Mister House - Fun for Everyone!

49K Views
We built this sprinkler mister house for our kids a couple years ago. Great for kids and tall enough for growing children/teens, and adults. We created it so that it could be taken apart and put away for the winter.
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $55 Difficulty: Medium

Here's a picture of the base of the PVC pipe house base.

All pipes are 37" with the exception of the pipe with the hose attachment on it. That pipe is 32" on one side, tee fitting, and then 4" on the other side to center.
All corners have elbow fittings
Center has 2 tee fittings

Next we built up. The 4 corners are 37" high, and the long pvc across on either side measures 74". Use tee fittings to connect the bottom, middle, and top pvc pipes together.

The top stretch the pvc pipe measures 47" on all 4 corners.

The top is a copy of the bottom set up with the exception there is not faucet up there so all PVC pipes are 37" long.

Next you drill holes where you want them to be on your house.

We drilled a total of 10 holes.
2 holes in the 3 pvc pipes across the top
2 holes in the middle of the long middle bars on the sides
2 holes on opposite sides and opposite ends of the base.

Place mister emitters in the holes.

Use noodles, sponges, fly swatters, and rope to decorate your mister house.

Here is what it looked like when we were all done. We did later decide to add 4 more noodles to the top to hold the rope in place.

We opted to not glue the PVC house together. We used a rubber mallet to solidify the pieces into place. Turn the water on slowly and it'll begin misting. It doesn't take a lot of water.

    Thanks for the great idea! It requires so little water as well, compared to having the hose running for any length of time. Great alternative to setting up the kiddies' pool, filling it, then having to wait for the sun to warm up the cold water

    What a great idea for kids of all ages to play and cool off in. Another great thing about it is you don't have to it with your kids every minute like you do when their in a pool! Also nice that you can take it apart to store when not in use. The
