2 final touch questions...

Unread postAuthor: pyromanic13 » Sun Dec 03, 2006 1:54 am

a.) how do I get the label adhesive off off my spud gun? it looks like crap!

b.) Can I fully submerge my gun? WITH modded sprinkler valve, pressure gauge, and shraeder valve? or will this ruin one of these components?
-gotta do this because after like 20 min the gun looses like 1/4 of it's pressure...

Windex will take off the junk after some good rubbing. And yes, you can submerge your gun.

Just don't use anything that will soften the PVC and dull the surface.

they sell stuff at any place from wal-mart to home depot, It's called goo-be-gone. works good.

but, my personal experience has been that gas and a rag work just as good. oh, has sprinkler.com shipped your stuff yet? have you received it?

WD-40! Seriously, it won’t harm the PVC (it’s fish oil) and it does work I use it all the time.
Why would submerging hurt it? 90% of it was designed for water in the first place…

Say, don’t they put eucalyptus oil in Vicks?
