help with 2" valve

Unread postAuthor: CKrawlermike » Sat Aug 26, 2006 10:41 am

i just picked up a 2" sprinkler valve for free and want to know how to get the most power and flow from it. i have done the modification like the 1 inch valves but i think it could do more.

Well i already has the same flow as 4 1" valves so you dont really need much more.

If your getting chased off a police dog, try not to run through a tunnel then onto a small see-saw then through a ring of fire. They are trained for that!

Modify it with a 1/2" or 3/4" ball valve.

Using it to vent a valve would be a waste.

It would vent really quick, and make a very powerful piston valve
