3 sprinkler valves?!!?!

Unread postAuthor: d.marty » Fri Mar 08, 2013 3:19 pm

So I am building a new pneumatic. I will eventually be buying a supah valve. However for the time being I want to get this project of the ground. So I've been doing a little research and I found a Canon on X inventions.com that has two sprinkler valves. Would there be any cons to me just throwing 3 sprinkler valves on?

Sprinkler valves make a quick fun first gun , they work great for pilots but why 3 on one gun???

I would personaly suggest getting a dust collector valves little pricy but a a lot more powerful nd more powa!!!!

First off, if you want something just to mess around with and have fun go ahead get a sprinkler valve non jar top mod it nd build your chamber nd barrel nd be done nd enjoy ,,

I also forgot to add it also depends on what your trying to shoot, even if you invest in a 3/4 qev they even can make a awesome little plinker gun!! Just check the forum lots of us use them


If your looking at some serious power , get your self a dust collector valve ,, if you choose to go with a dust collector valve, little bit pricy,, but you can slap the right barrel on and chamber and launch golf balls 500-600 yards with ease, they are simple nd easy to build no modding needed ,,,,,,now remember if you wanna work with anything involving compressed air try to stay away from non pressure rated pipe/ fittings, it can and will
explode, but please be careful ndhave fun!!!


Stay away from fittings that say dwv(drain waste vent)


Here is a look at a3/4 qev open a lot quicker then a sprinkler valve nd can handle high pressures

A single piston valve big enough is better than any number of sprinkler valves.

Dust collector valves are the way to go. I have a few for sale. Message me if interested. If you search"dust collector valves for sale" and put my screen name in as a wildcard you will find the thread I posted. A dust collector valve is 10times more powerful than a supah valve, they cost less, and they are aluminum. I have a supah valve and the tee and piston both broke after time...
