1st pic ** This pipe is garden reticulation pipe. It’s very thin and pliable. The connectors are shown below the pipe.
2nd pic ** There is NO glue needed as the connectors have a lip on them as shown.
3rd pic ** These pieces are the top and bottom of the atom.
4th pic ** Inside part of the atom. It’s just 4 pieces of pipe with a cross connector holding them together. Cut the pipe longer then you need and trim it to fit when the top and bottom of the atom are connected together as shown in pic 5.
5th pic ** Here’s the top and bottom of the atom clicked together. (I left some undone to make it easier to see how they click together).
