filling multiple chambers at the same time

Unread postAuthor: trollhameran » Sun Jun 08, 2008 2:45 pm

Im looking for ideas of a way to fill multiple chambers at the same time using a single compressor, the chambers will be 2 liter bottles and they cant be filled through the cap. Does anyone have an idea how to do this?

or you can use multiple TEE hose barbs to make many hoses of one.

now just need to find somewhere to buy them in the UK.

While were on the subject, will epoxy glue 15mm pipe either copper or pcv in through the side or the bottom of a pet bottle and be able to hold pressure?

Well the epoxy will stick fine to the copper or pvc but it wont stick very well to the bottle and will eighther leak or just blow off.

if you get a nice layer on the inside of the bottle around the pipe. it sticks to the pipe making it to big to go through the hole

Why use a bottle if you can also use PVC?
Its worth those few bucks.
