Re: Homemade pump action designs?

The nozzle below suggested by TylerK is far and away the best nozzle I have. https://i.imgur.com/UQ0XO45.jpg I purchased mine HERE . The product page shows an image of the 2-inch sweeper nozzle, but this is indeed a 6" nozzle. I know of no other non-cast, non-stepped 6" sweeper nozzles on the market.

Re: K9 Kannon

Ben, A one-handed balloon launcher would certainly be nifty (two hands to charge, one hand to fire). It looks like it's powered by LRT, which I'm sure you'll upgrade. You may even be able to use Theraband Gold. Or perhaps use Theraband Silver Tubing (there is no Theraband Gold Tubing). I don't know ...

Re: Spyra One

Rike, Is there a screen on the intake to mitigate clogging of internal components from relatively large debris in the water? What if the water has a high calcium content (aka hard water)? I imagine the calcium would precipitate and scale inside the blaster. Can you run vinegar through it like you wo...

Re: Spyra One

Ben - I have to agree with you about the product looking great. Each design revision of that shell has been a significant improvement in my opinion.

Rike - Will Spyra One be available in blue, too, from the start? Or do we have to wait for "Spyra Two"?

Re: water pump, backpack water machine gun (inspired in the Gattling)

Hi Tengger,

Can you post a sketch of what you have in mind? Can you also post a photo of what you mean by "manual lever water pump"? This will give us a better idea of what you are trying to accomplish. Thank you.

Re: New Linear Flow Valve

Hi Drench, Yes; the o-rings are a bit different. In the last trial, I used o-rings with a Shore A durometer of 70 (think car tire). The o-rings I have on order now have a Shore A durometer of 50 (almost as soft as a pencil eraser). Based on what I’ve read, softer o-rings work better in some low pres...

Re: Unconventional high power water gun designs

Hi Ben, I like where your head’s at. I also think watercrazy007 has some ideas worth bringing into the fold here. In particular, I like his shortened version of NightHawkInLight’s piston, but I’d stick with the original piston for 2” pipe due to its ease of manufacture. Because I am promoting the us...

Re: New Linear Flow Valve

I'm finally back home. I updated my model today, making the following changes. Removed Inlet On/Off Seal groove. Made area within Inlet Body Seal equal to the area of the Outlet Body Seal minus the area within the Outlet On/Off Seal in an effort to achieve a “zero-pressure” seal. Made o-ring grooves...

Re: Adventure Force Super Storm - Walmart CPS

PTT finally did get back to me. Perhaps I did not have the appropriate contacts initially. By now, they've seen isoaker's & Buff's reviews and this thread. They would like me to provide some additional feedback. So, they said they "would love to send some samples of the Super Storm and some other pr...

Re: Accumulator tanks as pressure chambers

cdmt,

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. How did you adapt the "chinese toy squirt gun pump" to the PVC? Do you have any pics of your Jabsco blasters?

By the way, are you in the military? Just curious about the blousing band in the background.

Re: Next generation rubber CPS homemade water gun planning

Ben, Good points regarding battery safety. Batteries with Lithium chemistry can be dangerous if not used and protected properly. Some of these Lithium chemistries are safer than others by default. The LiNiMnCo chemistry combines the safety and low resistance of Manganese with the high energy of Nick...

TheSoaker, Thank you for the feedback. Do you (or anyone else reading this - isoaker? mr. dude? soakinader? anybody?) have photos of the Scorpion’s internals? Ben, You’re totally right about rubber tubing acting like an accumulator – even the garden hose does this. I did not add an extra seal to all...

Re: Next generation rubber CPS homemade water gun planning

TheSoaker - I'm not sure if I will use LiPo, but I'll definitely use a Lithium technology for its superior energy density. The problem with LiPo packs is that I cannot find any in the necessary dimensions. I want to hide the battery in the strut channel (the "backbone" that everything mounts to). I ...

Re: Possible source for electric water pumps for future electric homemade soakers

<bump> The pump identified by TheSoaker appears to be made by Táizhōu Water Source Environmental Protection Equipment Technology Co., Ltd . To me, it looks like a generic version of the SeaFlo brand, which is made by Xiamen Huiliyuan Imp. & Exp. Co., Ltd. I like the SeaFlo version because the motor ...
