Replacement screws for old Super Soakers

Forgot to post, but I recently found stainless steel replacements for most Classic CPS Super Soakers. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/100pcs-lot-PA-Stainless-steel-round-pan-head-philips-self-tapping-screw-M1-M1-2-M1/32891402070.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.3d144c4dTs3IUj They are size M2.6 plastic ta...

Re: Favorite Firing Valve Design?

Any guesses on how the Drench Force's swing check valve opens and closes? It seems to be mounted sideways, which means it doesn't use gravity to close the valve when extending the pump, like most swing check valves. Also, based on iSoaker's description, it seems the valve only opens when the pump is...

Re: Favorite Firing Valve Design?

By the way, does anyone know how the firing valve for the Water Warriors Drench Force works? I’ve read Ben say that it opens in such a way that almost doesn’t add turbulence to the water flow. If there are any examples or pictures of the valve, or something similar, would someone mind posting? I’ve ...

Re: Favorite Firing Valve Design?

Those gate valve designs look really cool, hopefully the leaking issue will eventually be solved.

And I'm also interested in seeing the Spyra's internals, to see if the durability/reliability/maintainability of the build justifies its price.

Favorite Firing Valve Design?

Based on your experience, what is your favorite firing valve design in a water gun? Things to consider are: -reliability/durability - will the trigger snap because of the way the trigger for the valve is rigged? How likely is it to develop valve issues over time/use? How likely is it to get gunked u...

Re: CPS 2000 vs 2500 questions

That helps a lot, I’ll go check the 2000 carefully for gunk next time I get around to opening it up, also for lubrication is it just the pump, or are there more places I should lube up? So far I just lube the O-rings and the pump with silicone grease.

Re: Soaker Wishlist - Which soakers do you long for?

At this point I’ll just save for a 2000 mk2 and/or a 1500. I think I’d take a 3200 over the (stronger?) 3000 because it seems sturdier to me, but correct me if I’m wrong. Wouldn’t mind accumulating more 1200s 1000s though.

CPS 2000 vs 2500 questions

My brother recently picked up a CPS 2000 mk2 and a 2500. The 2500 works well, except the 2000 has a much more laminar flow. Is this because the nozzle selector on the 2500 isn’t flush against the rest of the nozzle? Also, is there a fix to make the stream come out cleaner, or is this normal and I sh...

Re: Want better water blasters? Wish here!

I wish for all water gun manufacturers to stop using glue on nozzles/pumps.

Re: 2018 Water Warriors/BBT Blasters

My brother and I just picked up some new 2018 Outlaws for $8.92 each at KMart. I love these things, I feel like they don’t get the credit they deserve. They have the same output/range as most old XPs, great starter gun to give to noobs. I think they are priced around how much XPs used to cost in the...

Re: Spyra One

I'm pretty late on this... The most interesting part to me is the possibilities that come from the refilling mechanism. Battlefields could have buckets scattered throughout the middle, and teams securing and using up these refills buckets would be key to winning games. Especially since each gun only...

Re: Water Storage????????

What we do in our water fights is bring a 7 gallon water storage with a dispenser and place it on a bench (we usually play at parks). We park a car as near as we can, which has its trunk filled with soda bottles, juice jugs, water gallon jugs, and large empty whey protein containers (we'd wash out a...
