Step 1: Dissasembly
- Phillips Screwdriver
- Long thin metal things for prying
- Alot of Rubber bands (not pictured)
Step 2: Opening the Pressure Chamber
Locate the pressure chamber, it's the big round thing in the middle of the gun. The chamber should come off really easily, (it's done this way as another safety precaution to stop the thing exploding under pressure - think).
Now unscrew all the tiny screws around the edge of the chamber, and set them aside - it should open easily to reveal the heart of your supersoaker.
Behold! The pressure bulb.
Handle it gently like a tiny fieldmouse, this things powers your gun. It expands to fill the pressure chamber when you pump the gun, filling up with water. The elasticity of the pressure bulb holds the pressure added by the pump until you press the trigger.
Yeah, also this thing probably still has water in it ...
Step 3: Increase the Pooooowwweeerrrr
This is where the elastic bands come in handy.
Wrap the elastic bands around the pressure bulb, like an elastic band ball, and just keep adding elastic bands till your satisfied.
Remember we didn't disable the pressure valve here, so theoretically the top pressure of the gun is still the same, (you can disable the pressure valve if you like ... just don't hold me responsible when you're picking bits of plastic out of your face).
What the elastic bands do is just make it quicker to reach the top pressure of the gun, and therefore reaching maximum pooowwweeerrr sooner. It does also seem to increase the range of the thing, and also the amount of time the gun squirts for in one go.
Results may vary.
Step 4: Reassemble and Test
Put all the screws back in, nice and tight, and put it back together.
Now test your gun, carefully.
You have in your hands great power, ensure responsible use.
