GeoSnippits How To Make Your Own PVC Water Main Geocache

I don't know why I like making unusual geocache hosts out of PVC but I do know it is a whole lot of fun. This next example came to me while doing my normal walk through at the hardware store. I was thinking about how to make a really nice hide that would be very much waterproof.

While strolling down the plumbing area I noticed the water main shutoff and the inspiration hit me. I have not seen this particular type of geocache before and even though the cost is a bit more this time the results I think are well worth it. Below is the list of items you are going to need to make this amazing geocache. It is not the only way you can construct it. If you have better ideas of what you want to do with the initial design then go for it. You are only limited by your own imagination.
