DIY Submarine Made From Pvc: Dive! Dive!


This remotely operated vehicle was created thanks to the brains of Jason Rollette, who’s been at it for about five years. This is the second version of his ROV submarine, which is built mostly from PVC tubing.

This kind of reminds me of the movie Abyss for some reason. The ROV submarine uses four 500gph and two 1,250gph bilge pumps. The bigger ones are used for propulsion while the smaller ones are used to dive and surface.

It’s got lights and naturally a functioning camera, which lets Jason guide it into the depths. Jason actually designed some non-explosive torpedoes as well. Sweet. Incredibly, all of the parts needed to build this sub are available at any home improvement store.

He’s got an meticulously detailed guide on how to create your own. Here’s a link to the basic how-to pdf file he created to start off with this build.

    Hi, Thanks’ for your article, i like the topic very much. Inspire me a lot. Today i want to share my experience about laminate flooring.
    Maintain the laminated flooring is easy and simple, you just need this regularly:
    1. a clean sweep is usually
    2. A little warm water sometimes does the trick
    3. When to use the commercial cleaner
    4. Do not soak laminate floors

    Your model submarine should improve bath time fun for the kids and for the adults why not improve the look of your bathroom with coloured glass splashbacks for bathrooms
