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.

Hello! Thanks for sharing your launchers with the rest of the forum. Is this the same launcher that you featured on your YouTube video? We were going to ask you if there was a way yo move your pressure release valve to a location near the air supply rather than on the launcher? The release valve is best located as far from the rocket as possible to avoid having to get close to a pressurized rocket to dump the pressure.

Alternatively, a rope that can pull open the emergency pressure release is also a decent solution to this problem.

Thanks for posting the pictures!
