Nice cannon, ball valves also have better flow than sprinklers, but they dont open as fast, but you can spring load them to help them open faster.


i came up with the answers before him though. so technicaly speaking i pjowninated him.

first of all ur a forking retard..second ball valve do not have better flow than sprinklers..they have less turbulence but on a basis sprinkler valves increase performance 10 fold..

cork i doubt u used clear primer.. unless u want to order primer online becuase most stores dont carry it..

pyro..just let it go ok i said i have never seen a pressure rated cross before...

Ball valves do have better flow, but the slow opening time makes them not perform as well as sprinkler valves in the long run.

Sorry lol, I just like it when someone owns someone else.

He probably did use clear primer cause about every lowes or home depot carries it. If he didn't use any primer whatsoever, he must be retarded enough not to know how to post this topic.

Most fittings aren't rated for a specific pressure, they just have NSF-pw on them which means they are safe for pressure, so you are right about that.

I dont know, you can just go down to a local hardware and buy one, they are called tension springs, not compression springs. McMaster might have them, but try somewhere in your town first so you can save some money. Ask the person who built that gun where did they get that spring they used.

You are an idiot.
You call them all idiots yet you seem to top it all.
Ball valves have 100% flow with no restrictions, but have slow opening times.
He ordered the valve online so who says he didn't he order primer.
And you can tell his T is pressure rated because his bushings wouldn't fit all the way in if the T was DWV.
And I have never seen DWV under 1.5"
