  • Custom Sized Water Proof Containers

    I camp alot on the water, so I'm always looking for affordable water proof containers for my gear. This morning I thought of a way to build custom sized containers. I'm in construction and always carry blue prints with me. I built this to carry my blue prints & it also fits my portable 2 meter antenna. This could also be used to bury supplies (like canned food).
    I am sure this not an original idea, but it might help someone. Just cut to what ever length you need. I saw 4", 3", 2" and 1 1/2" ABS Pipe diameters.

    ABS piping is simular to PVC only black, lighter in wieght and less brittle.

    Parts List for my blue print container:
    10' -3" pipe $10.31 (I have extra for later)
    2- caps $4.63 each
    1- female adapter (threaded) $3.33
    1- male adapter (threaded) $3.43
    1- pack of primer & adhesive $5.96

    To flood test it after you have built it, fill it with water & check for leaks.

    Very nice :) Good writeup :)


    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
    beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.

      I thought of a million more uses afer I posted this:

      1- Make Small ones 1-2' long for survival kits to keep in the car
      2- Doubles as a canteen
      3- Use a 1" and a step up at the end (to fit a reel) for a fishing rod case
      (I spent $50 for my fly rod case).
      4- Use 550 cord- cobra woven for a sling for it
      5- Add water proofing to the threads- petroleum jelly.

      6- This list goes on, Interesting what can be accomplished with a limited budget and an imagination.
