sprinkler valve battery

Unread postAuthor: Demon » Sun Sep 28, 2008 2:55 pm

I am building a spudgun with an anti siphon valve and i need an electric actuation...

But i dont wanna pay 20 $for 3 9volts battery's so i rememberred then i had 2 old 9.6 volts rechargeable battery's.

But i need 24 volts to actuate it, will 19.2 volts be enough?


This is from an rc car (i taked the other from my sister one :twisted: )

One 9v is enough for a sprinkler valve.

Because that is the voltage of the sprinkler system.

It depends on the amps. Also, it is probably going to take more effort to use that instead of a 9v battery. Also, 9v's don't have to be recharged, and are actually fairly cheap. They also last a really long time on a sprinkler valve. I'm still on my first battery.

They run perfectly fine off a 12V lead-acid battery.
RC batteries can drive a fairly large load, so it should work all the same.

Should work, though I would like to recommend a pneumatic mod to you:
-No batteries
-Increased power

I already try to mod ( i did it two time ) and the first one sprinkler valve was scrapped and the blowgun on the second attempt just blow off :(

Does a anti siphon sprinkler valve have the same flow then a regular spinkler valve?
