Anyone know where to find those push-button hose spigots that you see at a beach or public park?

Trying to get the water turned back on at our local dog park (85+ and no water available due to vandals turning it on and flooding it at night) but the parks and rec manager won't budge. If we can take a solution and possible donations from us that use it regularly, we are hoping the guy will reconsider.

I usually bring a couple gallons. However, there are some that do not and a couple gallons only lasts a short while when they all are getting in on it.




posted it over in the ask a plumber thread and got some websites from there.

Put on baseboard trim and made some countertops out of some scrap wood for the cabinets of my bench seat.


Also put up crown molding and baseboards.

Tore down the old wheel chair ramp and reused as much of the old materials as possible to build some steps. Went 8' wide in total and cut 6 sets of stringers (pain in the ass). Next summer I am going to rebuild the railings to be a more stockade type style, getting rid of that 70's lean and lattice. Then stain the deck a more "normal" color and make it all match.

Always work to be done......

All materials had to be carried in from about 150' away































... ^^^ ... Mr. Oz ... Fantastic quality work and I am super impressed. ...

BUT .... are there ANY bears (or other destructive wild animals) in that that could tear up that (never have seen that many jets) cool jacuzzi ?? ...

PS ... This weekend (6th weekend with helper) , I continue to level floors (maybe 60 or 70 new columns (some block & concrete on structural beam areas and screw jacks to take bounce out of center of the floor joists).

I have NO basement, just a finished concrete floor crawl space from 30" to 42" high ..... we use dollies and creepers to do all work .... 35 LED 60 watt lights make it look like a mine tunnel ... lol ... we can't have a basement with a small lake in the back.

I need to take some pics and learn how to post them on here. I take many pics of everything, just have NEVER posted a pic on TW in 5 years (need to read up on how to post pics).

That is not the open ocean in his view. It is most likely a giant bay or something. The Pacific Ocean is the largest body of water on the planet.
