Naysayer's welcome to comment I would love to here the crazy and logical reasons this would not work

Thanks for the Thought I may stick with somewhere around 40-50PSI
I can't find anyone with that handle, are you sure it's spelled like that?

I'm assuming you meant the comment at the bottom on this page? https://www.instructables.com/id/Android-Controlled-Pneumatic-Cannon-Powered-By-Ard/

Define "pressure", define "PVC".

Different grades of PVC will hold different amounts of pressure.

What pressures do you want to store, and what volumes of those pressures do you want to store?

How long do you want to store it? How often (and how rapidly) do you want to cycle between high and low pressure?

Hey, Kiteman I was hoping you would see this. I want to store 100PSI for anywhere from 1 hour to a day in a tube i would like to put on a quick attach connection for the removal of the air. PVC as in Poly-Vinyl Chloride I believe. and pressure as in 100 PSI
You'll need to check, but I believe you need "schedule 40" pipe.
