Step 5: Preparing the Pouring System
Start by disassembling the super soaker gun by removing all the screws, popping the case apart and removing extra parts like the trigger and battery cover.
The next step for this specific toy was to cut away the battery housing to reveal the wiring on the inside (be careful when sawing or dremeling to not cut the wires on the inside or damage the motor which is right next to the gear box). Snip the wires to battery compartment until you are left with just the motor, gearbox, and pump. Finally cut the orange nozzle about 1/4" off so it expands the outlet diameter from a pin hole to larger (will slow the flow to a reasonable amount).
Next attach extra wire to the pump and solder on the battery pack, LED & resistor and the switch. See wiring schematic.
Using vinyl hose that fits over the inlet and outlet of the pump, drill a hole in the water bottle near the bottom that fits the inlet tube snugly. Epoxy on the inlet and outlet tubes to the pump, let sit for 20 minutes and then epoxy on the inlet tube to the water bottle. Finally cut down the PVC tube so when all assembled it sits flush with the top of the sphere. Epoxy the tube to the top of the water bottle (put plenty of epoxy around the threads so the beverage won’t leak). Let all the epoxy cure for at least 2 hours before assembling the entire unit.
