How to make a homemade aspirator vacuum

Things You’ll Need:

*garden hose (used is fine)
*vinyl tubing (a few feet long would be nice)
*a knife
*butyl rubber caulking

Step 1

Inspect the garden hose from the point that attaches to the faucet to about 2 feet down to make sure there are no cracks or large holes. If there are no holes cut off the two foot section you just inspected for our use.

Step 2

About six inches from the faucet end use the knife to make a hole large enough for the vinyl tubing to fit in somewhat snugly but without pinching the tubing closed.

Step 3

Insert the vinyl tubing and adjust the feed so that the vinyl tubing inside the garden hose points away from the faucet end of the garden hose. Only about 3-6 inches of vinyl tubing should be fed into the garden hose. It should NOT stick out the end of the garden hose.

Step 4

Use the butyl rubber caulking to seal around the vinyl tubes insertion point. If there are any small holes on the garden hose use it there too. After 24 hours plug attach your garden hose to a faucet and turn on the water. Feel the tip of the vinyl tubing that is not inside the garden hose. You should feel a suction.

*****Remember when dealing with air pressure it is best to have few to no leaks. The purpose of our caulking is to close up any potential leaks.

*****We used butyl rubber because it is easily molded even after 24 hours of drying. This allows us to correct any mistakes we may have made.

*****hmmm… warnings really necessary but of course don;t stick the vacuum end into your eyes, ears or urethra or anything. Be safe, always!
