Well in this post I am going to do my best to show you how to build a DIY Homemade dunk tank.
My father-in-law approached me last year asking if it would be possible to build a dunk tank for the church, he wanted to use it for a July 1’st fundraiser. Since finding the tank would require some time and networking I told him if he could get me a tank, then I would build it.
Since there really wasn’t a budget to build the dunk tank and any cost for materials would come out of the net profit that the church would raise we decided to build the dunk tank as cheap as possible. This helped in decisions for materials to use. For example most of the tower is built from inexpensive 2X4’s instead of a more sturdy longer lasting steel. This theme basically continued through the whole build.
I made a video showing step by step what I did, have a look.
See below a Video of the dunk tank in action and my step by step description of how I built it
I have also put the presentation below that the video was made from. This may help you if you would like to look at specific parts of the dunk tank in more detail.
