    pool storage for rafts and other stuff

    I have a shed we usually store our pool stuff but it gets the floor wet and some times we have had problems with rafts etc getting punctured. So can anyone recommend a economical way to store things just durning summer time so we have easy access to them and no risk of damage to inflatables?

    Don't need anything real big but needs to house at least 2 rafts that are around 6'long.

    PVC pipe to the rescue. You can use 3/4" or to make it more sturdy 1".

    On the two long sides (since rafts are 6' the frame can be 5' long. Start with a 90* elbow, piece of pipe 10", the a T pointing up. Out of the through side of the T a 4' piece of pipe, another T pointing up, another 10" piece of pipe and a 90* elbow. Make 2 of these.

    Cut 6 pieces of pipe 33" long. (you can get 3 from on 10' piece of pipe and have a piece left for the short pieces) These will be stuck in the T pointed up.

    Cut 4 pieces of pipe 5" long. Insert them in the through sides of another T. Now connect them to the 90* elbows with the open end pointing up.

    Take your other 2 pieces (of the 6 you cut) and stick them in the Ts. This will separate the two rafts as they are standing up.

    Shopping list.
    3- 10' pieces of pipe preferrably 1"
    6- Ts
    4- 90* elbows

    6 - 33" long will leave you 2 pieces 21" long.
    4 - cut the 21" pieces in half. These
    2 - 4' long
    4 - 5" long

    Like AquaDoctorLLC said.
    PVC is very handy, and cheap.

    Here are some things I found on Google just browsing.
