are you incapable of using google? or using a converter?

and a well made piston of the correct size is usually batter than a sprinkler but i really depends on flow, pilot volume etc. of the piston valve.

Thinking because you have to and thinking because you want to are two different things.

It'd take you what like 15 seconds in google.

I've been on holidays since 30 November but doesn't mean you can be lazy.

Anyway...

145psi = 10bar = 1Mpa = 1000Kpa = 1,000,000pa

Merry Christmas and don't even think about posting another stupid topic where you are too lazy to search.


Oh and for the piston > sprinkler valve question, you're just going to have to search. You've used up your one stupid question already and you have no idea how many times it has been answered.

Given we have loads of piston topics, it'll probably take you around 10minutes to find, have fun.

By the way, Google does have a converter built into its calculator.

You have to type out the word pascals though.
