Creating a fire alarm working model using a tube light starter, a switch, a plastic bottle for water storage, and a DC water pump is an interesting way to understand the basic concept of fire detection and suppression.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to build this model:
Materials You’ll Need:
- Tube light starter (as a fire detector)
- Toggle switch
- Plastic bottle (for water storage)
- DC water pump
- Plastic tubing or straws (for water flow)
- Small container (for water reservoir)
- Craft knife or scissors
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Craft supplies for decoration (markers, stickers, etc.)

- Prepare the Base:
- Start by preparing a stable base for your model using cardboard or any suitable material.
- Fire Detector (Tube Light Starter):
- Attach the tube light starter to the base. This will simulate the fire detection mechanism.
- Water Storage Bottle:
- Attach a plastic bottle to the base to represent a water storage tank.
- Fill the bottle with water.
- DC Water Pump and Water Flow:
- Attach the DC water pump to the base near the water storage bottle.
- Use plastic tubing or straws to connect the water pump’s outlet to the top of the bottle.
- Water Reservoir:
- Place a small container on the base to act as a water reservoir.
- This container will catch and store the water pumped from the bottle.
- Toggle Switch:
- Attach the toggle switch to the base.
- Connect the switch to the power source (battery) and the tube light starter.
- Position the tube light starter near the plastic bottle (water storage).
- Place the water reservoir container below the tube light starter to catch the water flow.
- When the tube light starter detects heat (as a simulation of fire), it triggers the circuit, turning on the DC water pump.
- Water Pumping:
- The water pump will start pumping water from the plastic bottle to the tube light starter area.
- Water Flow and Suppression:
- Observe how the water flows from the plastic bottle to the tube light starter area, simulating fire suppression.
- Final Touches:
- Decorate the model with labels, signs, and other details to make it visually informative.
Remember that this is a simplified model for educational purposes and does not replicate actual fire alarm and suppression systems used in real-life scenarios. Always prioritize safety and follow proper guidelines when working with electrical components and materials.
