Like the water bucket over the door prank, getting people wet when they don’t expect it has always been great, harmless fun. A little bit of water soaking someone’s clothes is something they will get over quickly, and usually something people will end up laughing about sooner rather than later. One of the best ways to prank people with water is the duct tape over the faucet trick, and it’s incredibly simple to perform. All you really need is duct tape, some faucets, and a pranking target or two.
You simply put a little bit of duct tape under the faucet itself, toward the back, leaving a little room in the front. When the faucet is turned on, the water will have nowhere to go except to create a somewhat concentrated stream of water that shoots right back at the person who turned on the faucet. Or if the sink has a sprayer, you can simply tape down the handle. The moment the water is turned on, it’ll be directed through the sprayer and all over the target.
You can easily leave these all over the house and watch multiple people get wet, but the same person is unlikely to fall for it more than a couple times or more before they start checking every faucet with extreme paranoia. While this paranoid behavior may be amusing, if they are bothered enough they may start taping faucets they expect you to use, just so they can have some of the same fun you had.
