Blowguns in Australia(Cant find)

Unread postAuthor: Hydra » Sat Mar 29, 2008 2:21 am

Title says it all. I can't find them, or do they have a different name? I also can't find any correct Sprinkler Valves... this is the one i found, no CP-100s or WaterMasters. http://www.nrrbs.com.au/hrproductsvalvesorbitj.htm
Sorry for the nooby post but Im serious.

any sprinkler valve would work mate, just get down to bunnings or an irrigation shop.

super cheap auto has blowguns as well as bunnings, mitre 10, and loads of other just look around.

I have to concure with Carlman. Bunnings and Super cheap even REPCO have blow guns, You have to look and you might have to ask for a bit of assistance. But there there so are the correctly rated ball valves and solinod valves. All there under one roof......

Super cheap Autos blowguns that are cheaper, only work to 70PSI and have a much more restricted flow than the bunnings ones that you have to get in a pack with all fittings for 8bucks :shock:

Thats coz the super cheap auto blow guns are for the automotive industry as the Bunnings ones are for everything. But yeah you get the better deal at Bunnings. I went and had a look at REPCO and the ones they got are on special at the moment for 5 bucks. But there just cheapys and there is no real sppecs on em so i guess it would be trial and error.

Repco is an Australian engineering company. Its name is derived from 'Replacement Parts Company', referring to one of its major lines of work.
