Can I use a paint can or bucket Empty Can I use a paint can or bucket

I want to build my first nozzle. In doing the research it seems that the nozzle should use either 6 inch or 8 inch pvc pipe in order to get the maximumn height and distance. I'm unable to find either 6 or 8 inch pipe at either my local Lowes or Home Depot.

While searching for options I came across new empty one gallon paint cans, measuring 6 D x 8 H inches. Since the can is so short I thought about using a smaller can with the scouring pads to do the initial slow-down of the incoming water. Would this work?

Another problem is that I don't know what I'd use for spacers.

The other option would be to use one of the Home Depot/Lowes buckets, 12 D x 14.4 H inches. These buckets have lids. What are your thoughts about this?

Thanks in advance

I think you should try it. As far I as I know, no one has tried this before. I have been looking for alternatives myself. Because of some unrational reason, I overlooked the "ready made solutions" of soft materials like the paint buckets. For good comparison with other jets, try to use the "standard brazz nozzle" that most of us have (but not me ).
