Here is a schedule 120 pressure chart from Harvel pvc.
So, if you want to make a backpack out of pvc, use schedule 80 or 120, not schedule 40. Personally, I would use 120, but it is expensive..

3" sch-40 would be safe up to 150 by my safety standards.
It would hold alot more air than 2".

and wtf?
sch 120 would weigh so much on your back.
40 would be bad enough, especially in a airsoft type game


Are you kidding me? PVC weighs nothing... Expecially if it is above your COG. Like, In real airsoft, one of my friends has a 45 lb vest full of gear... So, PVC would be nothing...
Your friend must get hit alot then.
and weight on a vest isn't the same as weight on your back.
sch 80 pvc is about twice the thickness of sch 40.
So that means it will weigh twice as much.
Why use sch 80 when sch 40 will work fine

Because I already have a 7 gallon air tank, and running out and buying a beer keg CO2 tank and a regulator is expensive (about 75$). I would if I had the money.

If you are going to use paintball gear go with HPA/co2 like spudzinger said (you only need one, and there are belts designed to hold it behind your back).

I would go with 2x 3" pipes, they will hold alot more then the same length of 2" pipe, but are easier to find fittings for and are more compact than 3".


Bottom line: Go with a 20oz co2 tank with a remote kit and belt pouch. It will be alot less cumbersome and lighter than pvc tanks while holding more gas.

Get a paintball co2 tank remote, take off the male end (End that would screw into a paintball gun). And replace it with the correct fitting....

Does the CO2 tank remote have a regulator built in?

try a coleman propane tank. its stored as a liquid...... turns to a gas when released, and hey, its cheap! just watch out for cooldown, its a bummer when that happens. you go from firign at 100 PSI to firing at 50 PSI, which sucks. honestly, just go with the coleman propane tank. (or a few of them).

My dad wants me to have something that is "safe", he wouldn't let me use the kegerator setup. He just might let me use the CO2 remote thing.
