The EASY TURBOSLIME® Pit Design
||This system allows you to create about a 3 inch basin with padded edges and will hold lots of lube. It’s also very scalable, so you can adapt it to suit your size requirements, shapes, or depth if you want to use larger diameter pipe and insulation. The EASY pit design is best used on grass or with a foam pad since there’s nothing between you and the underlying surface. The picture illustrates an octagon with 4′ 8″ sides using 45 degree elbows.Click for Design Video|

The Recycled Somma Tube System Pit Design
Soma Tube System Type Pit
|This is an ideal setup.The basin is made from part of a king size Somma Tube System waterbed. It’s medium density foam with 6 inch walls and a tough vinyl liner designed to prevent flooding of your bedroom if a tube happened to rupture. If you can find one, it’s perfect for TURBOSLIME® wrestling.
TURBOSLIME® is searching for a supplier of this pit and may add it as an option in the future.
Edges were lined with additional bubble wrap and pillows for safety.
The TURBOSLIME® OCTAGON Hay Bale Pit Design
|Materials8 bales of hay or straw
|DirectionsThis is more crude than some other designs, but it will also work. We’ve seen this done inside a bar previously.
Spread out the plastic sheet – landscaping plastic works very well – it should be at least 20 feet wide – wider is even better.
Place half of the bales on an edge of plastic, then pull the plastic over the top of the bales.
Place the other half of the bales appropriately. tuck the other edge of the plastic underneath the bales, leaving enough plastic slack in the middle to form the octagonal lined basin.
Pour your TURBOSLIME®.
The weight of the ASTROLUBE® and bales should hold the basin together, but the system may need some maintenance during the festivities.
