 yep made mine from used 100mm poly pipe cut to 400mm and 500mm lenghts (thought that they would last a little longer than PVC) which I manage to pick up cheap, concreted 1 end which tapered back to half way along the pipe, left a gap on the end to allow drainage plus drilled a number of 10mm holes, used cheap 80pound leader and shark clips to attach to 5mm 50m nylong string.....works a treat!

Make sure your pot is heavy enough that the surge doesnt move it around. 


Also tell me where you put them so I can check up on them regularly   ;)
