It looks goofy. Good stats though.

Did you Solvent weld it? Is that the pump on the top? Is the bottom the intake? It is interesting that the Hydra Pack had this much power.

One thing that bugs me is that if you calculate the shot time with the PC capacity and output, it comes out at just over 2.25 seconds, well outside the effect of other things. This number would also make sense because the CPS 2000 has ~30x output and half the PC volume, getting 1 second of firing time. One or more of your stats is wrong.

I'm sure that output was measured approximately. It is much easier to accurately measure shot time than output.

ok the parts of this homemade are a T split,some pipe fittings, a ball valve,the pump from a CPS 2700 (CVFd) and a bladder from a hydra pak. the pump is held in the bottom of the T by wraping some duct tape around the tube that comes out of the outlet, shoving it into a threaded pipe fitting and that is screwed into the T and covered with more duct tape to hold the pump in place and for comfort. It is perfectly watertight and does not leak
