I made one of these for my 2 boys. I bought a bum sprinkler valve so I had to go w a manual ball valve instead but they, and the neighbors love it's! anybody have a super fast way to make water balloons in mass? I'd add I picture but the app doesn't make it clear how to ( if possible!). thanks for helping me make many smiles!

One of these in the form of the DOA-12 shotgun would be absolutely amazing

Would love to make this (these) to entertain the grand kids. I only wish videos would actually play on this App! Not one video -- of ANY project -- will even show up, let alone play. Bummer!
My son built a potato cannon that works great for this type of thing too except we don't put the water in balloons we just fill the barrel with water and out it comes with a shot of air.
Thank you for a great tute and idea.

A friend of mine built a "spud gun" with a sprinkler valve. He uses two 9V batteries in series to get good valve performance.

Made one of these (this design) for the 4th, it was a bit hit. I experimented with different types of wadding and found that a wadded up grocery bag worked really well. I ran a string through the chamber end of the barrel and let it hang out of the muzzle end about 24" where I tied off the grocery bag so I wouldn't have to chase it down after each shot. I had a 2" barrel and was getting 350-400 feet at 65 psi with a single balloon. The only lubricant I used was water, had a breakage rate of one out of fifteen or so, very acceptable.
