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.

Nice tutorial! This system seems good and robust. I remember you also said you had a perfect record of flights. I'm going to bookmark it so when people ask me how to add a parachute I can point this out to them.

Why not post your tutorial to out "How To" forum. This is just the kind of thing we are looking for. The "How To" forum is going to be a library for people to come to when needing instructions. That way people don't have to search all over the web. Keep up the good work!!!!
