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.

Metalic gardena connected to quick-release for compressors

Post by RaZias » Sun Sep 13, 2009 3:40 pm

These are photos of a metalic quick-release gardena glued by epoxy to a metalic quick-release for compressors.

As you see this allows to connect it to a hose with a small lumen. A small lumen means that the hose has a small volume inside so all effort to pressurize goes to the rocket.

Hoses with a big lumen means more volume to pressurize...

The advantage is to easly change the house and the hability to connect to any house made for compressors.

I use a 20 bar house, later I can change for a 30 bar use for example.
