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

Since our founding in 2003, we've become 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 Everyone. It is that time of year again. Time to approve changes to the competition rules for the new year.

Water Rocket Filling System

Post by RaketfuedRockets » Sat Mar 28, 2015 5:15 pm

Hey there,
this easy to build an inexpensive Water Filling System helped us a lot in the last year by reducing the launch preparation time of rockets dramatically:

All you need is a pressure sprayer, a 3-Way Hose Coupling and a Regulator Valve.
Maybe this will be usefull for a few of you as well. :)
Cheers

I wonder if there is a high volume low pressure hydraulic hand pump that could be used...
