Like I said this might be a stupid question or whatever but I need to know. I just made my first modded sprinkler for my first pneumatic spud gun and I was wondering if there needs to be pressure in one side for it to work? Plain and simple, does it have to have pressure on one side or should it open without any? thx much

there has to be pressure. look at a diagram of how a sprinkler valve works, hold on I'll find if someone else doesn't first

On the valve there should be an arrow pointing one way. The way the arrows is going should be toward to barrel. It wont work if its backwards. I didnt know anything either when i started. I thought you already bought the sprinklers modded when i saw pics of them with blowguns.

Exactley right, when I first started looking into modded sprinkler valves, I thought that something had to be screwed into the exhaust port on the blowgun and connected to the chamber or something like that, I dont even remember, but im smarter now. 8)
