Unread postAuthor: chevy08racing » Fri Jan 19, 2007 3:49 pm

So i just ordered 2 sprinkler valves from home depot. There lawn Genie 1" inline valves with a .25 - 40 GPM flow range. When i get them in the mail i was going to set them up like this. Can u guys tell me if it will be better than my first cannon.

I gues what im asking is do you think its a good design and if it is do you think it will be alot more powerfull than my original cannon?

Looks good.

The only tip i can give is to put a small section of PRESSURE hose on the encaps, connecting the two chambers, so that they will be filled at the same time, and with have the exact same pressure.

otherwise, the design is fantastic!

Yes that would help, you only have to have one schrader. And you should mod the sprinkler valves for even more power :twisted:

when you mod them, you have to connect the valves to one blowgun, but instead of a blowgun, you should use a ball valve. they would open faster, for better performance.

Or I've found with my friends gun like that you can have more pressure in one side and it will give the ammo a spin.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.
