I believe on mythbusters they got it to about 60 give or take before it blew out a wall.I think it was one of the seams they blew aswell.

I plan on using it for a sprinker setup, fill it with half water and pressurize it to atleast 90 psi. Guess I will have to keep looking, thanks for the reply.

Unless stated on the bottle I’d say 0psi… remote pressurize it from 50 yards with a piece of ¾ plywood between you and the bottle pressurize it till it blows then leave your self a big safety window when it’s on the gun…

Why are you filling it with water?
That will hurt performance.

yeah i got one of those bottles to 70 psi before it blew apart between my legs. we found a chunk 50 yards away and a chunk in my leg lol. I do have a cannon which i reinforced the bottle with this special packing tape, and i was able to get it to 90 psi repeatedly with out the bottle bursting. (sold it to a friend, and hes had no problems with it either).
