Question about double chamber.

Unread postAuthor: Rayman_1337 » Sat May 05, 2007 6:26 pm

How do you fill both chambers at the same time when you are using a sprinkler valve for both chambers?

If you cant, would running a hose from one chamber to the other work?

you would have a reducer tee on each chamber and connect it with a small pipe, but they will equilize by themselfs if they are modded and have the same accuation.

you would connect both chambers with a t, and have the sprinkler valve on the outlet of the t and the tow chambers connected to the other 2 ends

just like in this pic, just ensted of the ball valve, you would have a spinkler valve

you dont "mod chambers", you mod the valves. to make an air chamber you glue a cap on and you got a 1st class air tank.

the accuation is a blow gun/ball valve, look it up in the how-to section, there are tons of how-to's on modding valves. it may sound complex, but it will all fall together when you accually get the parts, trust me.

PS- dont tell anyone that i told you this, but you will get the same proformance with only one valve.

edit- super spuder is right, but dont use abs over 50 psi or so, and if you were smart you wouldnt use it at all.
