Step 1: What You Will Need:

Give a general description of the Step instructable is so easy you only need three things.
1. schrader valve
2. bottle cap
3. and a pump

Tools:
a drill (or just a knife)

Step 2: Step One:

now get your bottle cap and make a hole big enough for your schrader valve to go through (make sure that you have to force it through so its air tight)

Step 3: Step Two: Shoot the Rocket

now all you have to do is screw the bottle cap onto a bottle (any bottle that your cap fits on). once it is on pump it to about 50 psi (do not over pump or it will EXPLODE) once at 50 psi aim the bottle up but not at your chin aim it away from your head and unscrew the bottle cap as fast as you can. then it will fly really high i dunt know how high but it goes pretty high.

p.s have fun an play safe

    Unscrewing the cap would take A LOT of time!!! The water would get out in your hands. A better idea is to take out the valve core, so when you remove the pump you can release the rocket.
