WHAT TO DO:
1. Roll out
your polythene and fold in half to double the strength.
2. One at a
time place a block of wood under the corners and place an eyelit on each side
of the corner and tap it together using a hammer.
3. To keep
the mat in place, secure it in the eyelits with plastic pegs.
4. Lay down
the pipe beside the mat and peg it down using the staples (don’t put the
staples through the slide-just next to it)
holes in the piping on the same side, about 50cm apart using scissors or
irrigation punch – don’t do this without an oldie helping!
6. Now pop
some holes in the pipe 50cm apart so it sprays on to the slide, make sure your
holes are on the same side of the pipe.
you’ve done that snip your piping to length and pop a plug in the end of the piping.
8. Lastly attach
piping to hose using hose connector and you’re done!!
