Bucket Dump This sprinkler is the most complicated to build as you must design a pivot mechanism for the bucket. I welded mine out of ½” square tubing and rolled a length of1/4″ round bar into a ring that the bucket could sit in.

You can attach your pivot mechanism to the body of the sprinkler with 2″ pipe hangers.
