This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Plumbing.

In this Badge Bit, you will set up a foot pump on a sink. (Note that this BB is part of a 1-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Big List. You must complete one Badge Bit in the Big List.)

I sure like the field sink example in the BB. So I made it! I love the idea that I can have a sink anywhere I want, if I have the right bucket of stuff, and my brain.

I already had the bubble pump, tubing, and vessels. The hardest part was figuring out which were the correct pvc fittings to both make the right shape and fit on the tubing.
Why is there not a sink here?!?
