Topic: cps 2500 or cps 3200 - which one ?
Replies: 34

My pick is the 3200. I think it's the best soaker ever made. Big CPS gun, capacity like no other, useful array of nozzles, relatively easy to pump. It would be absolutely perfect with Collosus and supercharge ability.

Sorry for the late response. The 2100's were $7.99 each plus tax, mixed marks.

I bought 20 or so 2100's at a Sports Authority in Springfield, IL, earlier this season.

Finally, a use for the Triple Charge? :p Maybe. Reflecting back on the experience, my SC600 probably would have worked better. I will try it, as the doc indicated that significant buildup remained in my left ear. If that doesn't work there's always the reliable 2700. :bm2700: :oo: eh? EH? EDIT: The...

Having a hearing test tomorrow and considerable wax buildup, I figured it might be time to really clean out my ears. First, I tried some over-the-counter goop that seemed to plug me up more than I was with which to start. What I really needed was a syringe to flush out everything. I was in the proc...

I never lend soakers to anyone unless comfortable with them returning damaged, dirty, and/or with missing parts. I wouldn't even think of loaning a CPS gun for any reason, unless its of the SC series or maybe a FF. I brought my beloved 2700 to a pool gathering recently and made it clear that no one...

In all my dealings, I've found just one CPS soaker at Dollar General, and it was a 1-3-5. eBay is the place one is most likely to find old, available CPS soakers. Garage sales would be my next guess.

Nowadays, I most often find myself using soakers to kill wasps. The guns are simply filled with very soapy water. The Monster X works great due to its variety of nozzles and capacity. The smallest nozzle renders a funky, sudsy, nasty stream capable of downing any of those little stinging twirps tha...

Aquarius: it stopped working because of the max-d trigger. It seems like each day, they work less and less until they stop. Maybe the trigger mechanism on yours was weak, but, unfortunately, it's normal for them to stop working. (my triple shot is starting to wear off and my flash flood wore off, a...

The thing here is how much latent heat must be lost to allow for the solidification of ice from liquid. For sake of argument, I'm sticking with the assumption that we're dealing with water initially at 4C, 1atm. To strip water and make it freeze, you need to remove ~6.02 kJ/mol . Don't forget the e...

Phase diagrams represent systems at equilibrium. However, what we're discussing is a changing system, not one at equilibrium. Yes indeed. I am well versed and knowledgable when it comes to phase diagrams. Pointing to a phase diagram does not account for the status of a given material as it goes thr...

Well, I'm not going to hypothesize the what's and how's ad nauseam. We've got (supposedly) a NASA researcher clearly stating regarding the space shuttle: "During flight, the excess water is expelled into space. It freezes."--Ellis No boiling, no balloons. It freezes, period. What we don't know are ...

It is interesting since I really like water and love knowing how it behaves. I'm exploring this not to prove or disprove, rather to understand things. Same here. I'm just trying to help you understand. However, after reading, I'm still currently more believing that water would vaporize before freez...

Geez. This really interests you, doesn't it? Water in a balloon would freeze as it would be pressurized by its container. That is the hypothesis. However, it appears your shuttle example actually seems to show that streams would vaporize prior to freezing as small ice crystals. Ellis clearly indica...

On the shelf, sitting besides an industrial size can of Draino, I noticed a curious thing. An expandable latex tube pipe cleaner. The basic premise of this is to take, in essense, a cyndrical CPS chamber, shove it down your sink drain, and inflate one end with water, so it expands. As it expands, i...

I still wonder, though, how much carbonation would occur if you're pressurizing water say using compressed CO2 at 150-300PSI? Not much, even if you used water just above the freezing point. Also, consider that the water you're using already contains some measure of dissolved gas that isn't prone to...

I just counted 20 from memory. There may be a couple more but I'm not sure. These are mostly of the CPS type, ranging in size from the SC600 to MXL, with a few air pressure models, MD3k to XP 310.

This of course doesn't account for the hordes I have allocated for auction.

I think you'd have to be able to get the water up to supersonic speeds for it to vaporize on exit. If the process involved a sufficient transfer of heat, yes. One could concievably get the pressure high enough to solidify the water at standard temperature, probably not with a water gun though. At a...
