Homemade check valves

Postby Fishfan » Tue May 24, 2016 1:17 am

Hi. I'm back. Little older, and a rekindled desire for building homemades. So I am going to propose a project to a superior in my youth group. It involves building cheap, effective, relatively easy to use water guns that are low maintenance. For this project I have settled on building the Aph style. However if this project is feasible at all I need to cut down on costs as much as possible. So I want to build check valves similar to this:

I am not too concerned about finding the pvc or spring (maybe to find the right size). But the rubber piece. I tried doing a Google search for it but I just get pesto valves and schrader valves instead. Anyone know what he is talking about, maybe has a link or something to one or something similar?
It's good to be back.

Welcome back.

You should be able to pick these up at your local AutoZone or order online.

Sweet! Thanks.
If this project gets off the ground I'll post updates.
