My sprinkler valve is rated to 150 psi so I'm ok. And the whole pic thing,its cool man. Today I blew the barrel off,luckily i just had to re glue it. For some odd reason It wasn't glued before? It was very weird.

dude this wouldnt 'sort of work', it wouldnt work AT ALL.
By removing the solenioid you are removing the switch which controls fluid flow, this would allow air to move freely through the valve.


see the little thing in the solenoid which moves when you plug a battery into it, thats the switch, you cant just whack a hose where that goes.
Its like trying to use a tap with out a washer in it.

Honestly,I am not even sure if I glued it at all,but I glued it this time. No need to wait24 hours, It cures in about 2 1/2 hours in my climate-las vegas- its hot out.

Look, I have pressurized my gun to 150 with only the solvent weld,I think that the barrel came off for the first time after 100+ shots is because when I did the water shot the recoil knocked it out.
