There is nothing more satisfying than watching this man burst the water bed which created a giant bubble underneath his lawn, in Cambridge Springs, Pennsylvania.

Summer vacations are mostly through, and that means as you relish these last few weeks of summer, you’re spending tons of time in your yard. As you look around the property checking on your favorite plants or enjoying your outdoor rooms, you may notice some quirks with your irrigation system. An automatic sprinkler system saves you time and money in the landscape because you can set your system to water exactly when your plants need it. But if your sprinkler system isn’t working properly, you may be faced with some costs.

An astonished homeowner discovers a giant bubble of water under her lawn after a home sprinkler system got broken. The bizarre bubbles are usually caused when water gets trapped between a lawn and a membrane laid to limit weed growth underneath. The water cannot drain and causes the ground to balloon. Lawns can form blisters too. And enormous ones which you can jump on, use them as a waterbed made fully out of grass, or poke a hole into if you want to see fluid leaking out. If you are perplexed by what you have read so far, so you might want to watch the video first.

You know the feeling when you buy a new remote control that comes with a protective bubble wrap and you can’t help yourself bursting the tiny bubbles with the pressure of our fingers and enjoy the activity. You can only imagine the feeling of trotting on this huge bubble of water and the the when they star bursting under the pressure of your feet. What a delight that must be!

According to James Callender, the man in this video, the cause of the giant bubble had been from torrential rain in the area. "That's what you call an old-fashioned mud puddle", comments his wife. Watch James in his quest to pop up this gigantic bubble, by poking holes into it. He is having fun with his new yard bubble and keeps the neighbors entertained.

After poking several holes in it, and nothing happened, he decided to stands on it. As he climbs on it, the water inside starts moving around, making it look like a real waterbed or a gigantic balloon that is about to pop up. Brave James doesn't give up and he climbs on it again, and puts pressure on the water bubble with his feet, to help release the water from beneath.

Finally, the water started pouring out and that is very pleasing to watch. The muddy water started falling down like a waterfall, and to everyone's disbelief, James didn't sink entirely into the underground bubble and that was the moment of truth. You don't see this phenomenon everyday that is for sure.

What happens as a result is a strange looking waterbed made of grass, wobbling before your eyes and calling you to try it out, especially if you are an outdoor person, or simply teasing you to pop them and see what sort of content would leak out, just like the makers of this video.

If you have trouble popping up bubbles, this is the right thing for you.
