Re: 2018 WWN League Season

Sounds like a solid plan. I'd like to participate, but my attendance is iffy at best this summer. Pick some dates that don't conflict with my plans and I'll work with it best I can. There's one conference I know I'll be at next summer from July 22-26. Those days and probably a few days around then a...

Re: Spyra One

I sent you an email. Let's keep the technical discussion private in case you all want to get patents. (The ideas I have are not patentable as-is, but if you all can think of implementations then that would be patentable.) It also is quite likely you all know some things I do not as I switched to mai...

Re: Spyra One

To be fair to Spyra, they said the shots would be precise to 10 m, not that the total range would be that. I assume this means negligible breakup before 10 m, which would be impressive. That would put the breakup length at around 1500 nozzle diameters for a 0.25 inch nozzle. This is around where I w...

Re: Meet Ups in VA and MD

Sounds good. I might be in Maryland around then too and would be interested. Maybe not in a water war as I don't see the point of winter wars, but I might go anyway.

Re: CPS 2500 repair help

Here's a basic guide to some of the parts of a water gun . I recall that iSoaker has better illustrations with more details, but the site is down right now. There aren't that many videos about water guns unfortunately, compared against Nerf which has a lot of video tutorials. Sounds like you have t...

Re: Unconventional50 high power water gun designs

Thanks for your quick reply Tim. What you posted is a very interesting variation of my original more complicated design. I just found the thread where I posted that 3 years ago , so take a look at it. I discussed using a double acting air cylinder to move a piston, but you push the water directly in...

Re: New Linear Flow Valve

watercrazy007, something like that is how original Super Soakers worked. From what I understand, it has some problems. I don't know what they are from experience, but I imagine that the valve won't seal well at higher pressures, and would require periodic replacement. The second is not an issue for ...

Unconventional high power water gun designs

Conventional high power water guns use a valve between a pressure chamber and the nozzle. Firing valves are tricky for several reasons, and it's worth thinking of ways to avoid using them. First, anything more complex than a ball valve is too hard for most to build. (Pinch valves are an exception, b...

Re: Potential Successor to APH

Sorry for the delay. I wanted to reply to this thread for a while but have not had much free time lately. I also don't want excess heat to reduce the pressure rating of PVC, especially for pressures above 100 psi. Would that thermal energy have enough time to accumulate before being transferred to t...

Re: Battle for Little Creek

Unfortunately, I've decided to sit out for all remaining wars this season. My foot doesn't seem to be getting better at all. Sorry folks. I should have this under control by next year.

In the meantime I have a lot of homemade water gun ideas...

I looked at the post source code, and it does not appear that you tried the attachment method. Click on "Full Editor & Preview" below the "Quick Reply" section and look for the "Attachments" tab. This does not involve Photobucket at all.

Do not throw this water gun away. Worst case scenario you could sell it for parts. icecrystal, I'm afraid that you're not providing enough details to make a diagnosis. Please post some photos and be as specific as possible. I can't really figure out what you problem is based on your description. The...

Re: Potential Successor to APH

Great first post. Welcome to WWN. The APH was designed over 10 years ago, was not originally intended to be a "standard" homemade water gun, and is in need of a major update. Other folks had improvements in mind back then that I was mostly dismissive of as I recall, and in retrospect I was...

Re: Battle for Little Creek

Sorry to hear this fell through.

I expect to be able to run around fine by the weekend of July 22. But I already planned to go to a meetup that weekend. I could cancel if there are no other good options. The weekend of the 29th seems more likely to me.

Re: Largest Super Soaker Video

Nice work. I think this is probably more powerful than Supercannon II. 2400 psi vs. 100 psi is no comparison. But Supercannon II definitely beat his system in energy efficiency. His jet suffers from extreme breakup, while Supercannon II is fairly coherent for the fire hose nozzle. I could do better ...
