Supplies:
4" Sch. 40 endcap
2'x4" Sch. 40 PVC
4" coupling
4"x2" reducing bushing
3"x2" Sch. 40 PVC
2" male Adpt.
2" PVC ball valve
2" male Adpt.
3"x2" Sch. 40 PVC
2 1/2"x2" reducing bushing
2 1/2" coupling
2 1/2"x4' Sch. 40 PVC
1/8" scharder valve (assuming you have no air compressor)

Tools and stuff:
PVC glue
PVC primer
1/8" tap
electric drill

Just put it together in that order and when you make the whole for that scharder valve do it through the 4" end cap and the pipe so you get 2 layers of PVC.
