You should be Tazed, Big Grib :!:

I went to both Home Depot and Lowe's this afternoon and was told at both places they did not carry them, thank you very much.

Furthermore, if you can't offer something constructive, all here would rather not hear from you.

How you became a Lt Colonel, God only knows. When I served, those who would make postings as juvenile as yours would make PFC, at best

Thank you very much, Dewey-1. There's no Menards handy, but with your info, I'll be able to track it down.

Is the pneumatic valve only really rated to the blowguns maximum pressure?

Most blow guns are only rated to 90psi, if that. But they've been used at over 350psi. It should be perfectly safe, the valve inside will fail first, if anything.

Most sprinkler valves are only rated to 125psi or 140psi, some take them up to 160psi, but I wouldn't recommend taking them over that.

Unread postAuthor: hellaboyz » Fri May 16, 2008 5:24 pm

Hello. I'm staying somewhere in MALAYSIA and can't seem to find any hardware stores in my area that got any of these valves : ORBIT WATERMASTER & RAIN BIRD CP-100/075. I don't own any credit cards to buy online. Can anyone help to locate these valves in MALAYSIA or SINGAPORE? Thanks.

Check out The Sprinkler Valve, located in the Hubb Library (sigged). It covers the modification process of the valve in detail, and includes the jar-top as well.

The best kind of valve to use is the one you can get ahold of.

I know this is a old post, but you can drill your hole and mod from the center. The spring will just hit and or rest on the nipple or whatever you have attached to your blow gun!! I did it recently to a rainbird cp 100 1 inch valvve!!
