Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

The largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

Extend hose on bike pump

Post by wracing » Sat May 01, 2010 3:23 am

I have a clark cable tie launcher with the valve on the launcher itself. I would like to get an extension aircord for the bicycle pump so kids could be away from the launcher while pumping. Any thoughts? :)

You need to post picks but problably you must:
(this only works for bycicle valves, if that is the one in your launcher)

- buy a 20 bar hose with the smallest lumen you can find.
- do you see the pump connector in the extremity of your pump house ?
Get one and connect to the valve of the launcher.

- The other extremity must of the connector must be fitted in the hose.

- In other extremity of the hose you must glue a bycicle valve to a metalic connector,
that connector will fit in the hose.
(SEE THE PHOTO WITH A RED TUBE IN "250 COMPRESSOR REVIEW" TO HAVE THE IDEA)
