The washstand for country house-a thing very useful. Even if the country house has a water supply system, the outdoor washbasin is always in demand. With it, you can rinse your face in the heat, wash your hands after working on the beds, wash the dirt from the vegetables before carrying them to the kitchen.
Of course, like almost everything in our world, it can be bought. However, it is easy to do with your own hands. There are a lot of options for designs: there are the most elementary of plastic bottles with holes in the side of the lid, and there is more difficult.
We suggest to make a country washbasin, using a plastic five-liter bottle and the modified connector of hoses with the valve. In addition, you will need a marker (or rather, its body), waterproof glue and plasticine.
All that is required for the manufacture of the washbasin
Progress of work
First of all, it is necessary to modify the connector valve, namely — to weight it. To do this, we will analyze the marker, we need only its body. Also remove the valve from the connector and remove the rubber seal.
Prepare the body of the marker and the valve connector
A valve in the sink worked well, efficiently blocked the water, extend its case marker, weighted clay. To do this, fill the tube with plasticine balls and seal them.
Now it is necessary to insert the valve into the body of the weighted marker, “planting” it on a water-resistant glue. In order for the valve to fit well into the tube, it may be necessary to bite off the ledges with the clippers.
Remove the tabs with wire cutters
So, pour a little glue into the tube and insert the prepared valve. Now you need to let him dry well.
Next, you need to embed the connector into the bottle cap. Cut it round hole with a diameter equal to the diameter of the thread connector. Coat the threads with waterproof glue or sealant and insert the connector into the cover thread inside.

Get the bottle. In order to fill it with water, cut a hole in the bottom. Take another bottle with a capacity of 1 or 1.5 liters and cut the top part. It will serve as both a lid of a washbasin and a funnel at its filling.

To secure our water dispenser on the branch of a tree, take four piece of string or twine one and a half meter long. Tie them around the throat of the bottle and create a fastening system. To keep the twine in place, it is convenient to stick a strip of tape over the fasteners.
