How To Make Simple Homemade Drip Irrigation Using Plastic Bottles

Today we are going to learn how to make homemade drip irrigation simple, fast, inexpensive and using recycled materials.


The materials we will need will be: a cutter, hammer, nails, a small piece of rope (you can use your own plastic rope), a PET plastic bottle and a small strip of wood.

5 materials with which you will make a magnificent irrigation.

  • The first thing you will need is a PET soda bottle.
  • A hammer will also be needed.
  • You must also have a stud or screw
  • A cutter to cut the bottle.
  • A piece of rope.
  • Finally, a strip of wood longer than the bottle.


The elaboration is very simple and fast we are going to work! listing

  1. First cut the bottom of the bottle using the cutter.

  2. Then lay the wooden slat on a flat surface and place the bottle on it.

  3. On the other hand, take the Tacha and center it on the top of the bottle, nail it to the ribbon.

  4. Then tie the spout of the bottle to the ribbon with a piece of string to secure it.

  5. Then fold the excess stud back to prevent accidents.

We will use the bottle as a deposit and the small strip of wood as a structure to hold the ground. You can see the full instructions here:


Let’s see now how to operate our drip irrigation.

  • Nail the strip of wood into the ground, with the spout of the bottle facing down and the cap.
  • You need to place it under the plant you want to water, or very close.
  • Then fill the bottle with water.
  • Finally, open the lid little by little until you get the speed and amount of irrigation you want.
  • If you want the watering to be faster, open the lid a little more. Also, if you want slower watering, turn off until you get the drip you want.

If it’s not raining irrigation will last about 2 to 3 days. In addition, when it is open, if it rains, it fills with the purest rainwater that is good for your plants.

As you can see it’s very simple, economical and practical your new drip irrigation.
