UK Pipe Advice.

Post by Radam87 »


I was hoping to create a water rocket but we use metric and wondered if this piping would be appropriate in terms of diameter and pressure? ... _5336.html

I'm looking to start with a very simple launcher and tigger. If anyone could point me in the direction of the simplest that would be great.

Thanks in advance

The outside diameter of that pipe looks like it would work for a launcher, but the wall thickness seems to be thinner than the size of US PVC pipe, so you might have trouble figuring out a way to make an o-ring seal for this pipe. It could probably be used for a launch tube in any case.
