High Volume Cannon

Since I can't find certain PVC parts that are pressure rated. I thought of this and made a quick rendering on paint. Tell me what you think

I may use all steel fittings instead of a hose (black lines).

The hose will really hurt your flow, making the piston valve a bit of a waste...
What parts do you need that you cannot find?

Well nothing is really in proportion. I can find 2" steel fittings easily, but I can't find pressure rated elbows (3" and 4") or reducing bushings.

Depending on the porting on that valve, some 1.5" air hose that you can order from Mcmaster wouldn't be too bad for flow. Could get expensive though. Why don't you just order the fittings, or don't you live in the U.S.?

I do. Mcmaster has alot of stuff I haven't been able to look at yet. The idea just struck me but a little more in depth research will follow.
