Extreme Backyard Water Slide

DIY water slide

According tho the video, this slide was made “for the kids.” Whether you believe this statement or not, it’s quite an impressive use of culverts cut in half, forming 55 feet of personal water slide. The water is recirculated to the top by two pumps through a couple PVC pipes under the slide. It seems the kids do enjoy the slide, although I imagine dad enjoyed building it just as much.
