Instead of using the turn valves (with the red knob found on water lines and such) use a ball valve or a sprinkler valve. The gate valves take too long to open.

The design looks pretty sound.

Instead of extendable, would this work as a breech load setup? make hole in top of barrel, same for coupler. Align holes to load then twist coupler to seal barrel?( would need a handle though) like this
