Splash-Pad Pergola

My son needed an outdoor play area away from TV, iPads and iPods so I conceieved an open concept pergola with plenty of toy storage and water entertainment. A Copper pipe manifold with a rich patina (from Miracle Grow) feeds two floor jets with interchangeable sprayers and a bucket of PVC fittings allows him to build his own water features like Legos. A dump bucket, garden hose, shower head, and three sprinkler heads are individually controlled by color coded gate valves. A 500 gallon reservoir under the deck holds a recirculating pump. A large sand box finishes off the watery fun.
