Re: My new CPS system

Ok. I will be more aware of that in the future. I used PVC cement. I actually was expecting it to come off because I didn't get the pump housing all the way into the tee when I was cementing it. Anyways, I'm still stuck with the pum stuck in the pump housing. Maybe I'll play tug-of-war with my dad w...

Re: My new CPS system

Great. I am one happy camper. The entire pump housing came off when I was trying to pull the pump out.

Re: My new CPS system

Okay, I guess I'll keep the screw on adapter. I have put the bolt in the LRT. Now I have to get the clamps on and pray to the water gun gods that it seals properly. :lol:

Re: My new CPS system

I'm thinking maybe I should cut off the screw-on adapter alltogether. My dad sugested I put it there so I could replace the o-ring when it wore out, but I am just thinking when that happens just cut the endcap off. Should I do that? Because this is getting so frustrating.

Re: My new CPS system

I can't seem to get the larger bolt in there. I tried melting an ice cube on the bolt but I didn't get it on there. The 3 layers doesn't help either. Maybe I should take the duct tape off the LRT and and roll the outer layers back. Oh and by the way, on My LRT The smallest layer has the same outer d...

Re: My new CPS system

I got the pump in, and now I'm having a whole slew more problems. I tried pumping it some, and it still leaks. I managed to get some into the LRT, and it is leaking at the bolted end. I am using a 3/8 inch bold with 3/8 inch LRT ID. Is that sufficient? Should I use a 1/2 inch bolt? Or should I tight...

Re: My new CPS system

I tried to widen the hole more with a pocket knife, pump still won't go in. Sometimes when I tried to get it in the o-ring slipped out of the groove. I even lubricated the adapter with dish washing soap. Ugh, this is frustrating.

Re: My new CPS system

I cut a new groove farther down the rod. I can't upload any images right now because image shack is acting weirdly. Anyways, I tested it on a separate piece of pipe and it is so hard to pump that the o-ring actually rolls out of the groove a little bit. I put soap on it to lubricate it and it went t...

Re: What stuff do you keep in your soaker `shop? - Input desired

Right now all I have is pvc pipe racheting cutters (SO much easier than a hacksaw to cut pipe-and also no burs), PVC primer, and PVC cement. I also has some leftover pipe from my homemade CPS (That still need work on).

My new CPS system (Almost Done!!!)

I have just built myself a new CPS water blaster, except for the LRT (that comes today). Yesterday I just got the right sized o-ring (sealed fairly well at first) and I made a few modifications to make it easier to pump(cutting a bigger groove, widening the pump cap) but now it seals poorly. I read ...
