On your name, did you mean to spell it with "raper" at the end? If you didn't, ask PCGUY to change it, I think this is one time where the reason is plenty good enough, that is if you miss-spelled it.


LOL I couldn't resist. I was wondering the same thing about the username :lol:

BTW polly want a cracker baaak!!! :D

A 3/4" QEV will out perform a 1" sprinkler.

PLEASE DO SOME RESEARCH! Honestly man, we just told you all that, for you to not even bother searching again. That question has been answered numerous time on the forum.

He's pretty much making a piston valve. I didn't watch all of it, so he may of used a diaphragm instead of a piston.

Mate, telling you what parts are involved, wont do a thing. You have to know how to build it, understand what's going on.

SO PLEASE DO SOME RESEARCH!

You have very little clue to what you are doing, so instead of asking how to build things, do some research so you actually have a clue what is going on. I've told you this twice already, just please do some research.

We aren't going to help you if you don't know what you are doing.

And don't ask what a piston valve is...SEARCH.

Are you trying to pilot a sprinkler valve or a piston valve? If the former, buy a blowgun (13$ for me). If you want to pilot a piston valve, a 3/4" sprinkler valve should do the job.(~10$) I use a blowgun on my 1" sprinkler, and it works very well. I have used the same 1" sprinkler valve (with blowgun) to pilot a piston valve, but I recently switched to a QEV (quick exhaust valve), available from McMaster, for 20$ and under (3/4" and less)
