Here is a diagram of a simple inline design water balloon launcher. I tried to keep to the Douchenator's sizes though, but all of the lengths and pipe sizes can be changed to fit what is available to you.

Perhaps someone should enhance a Douche with a spring ball valve for extra performance. Typically a ball valve wastes a fair portion of the energy stored by not opening fast enough.

Like my Grape launcher: (Includes view of my left foot) (The "grey" loop that the pin goes through is the end of a powerful spring. The spring is housed in the 15mm copper pipe for safety)

And just to show you the entire launcher:

It's probably going to recieve a longer barrel soon for more power.

I was intrigued to see what the whole thing about shooting water was yesterday - so I went and checked it.

The recoil was seriously impressive, but the launcher showed no signs of disintegrating... as some reports would have it. Perhaps it's the 20mm bore?

I'm actually considering making one of these bad boys. After I get my job, I'll have plenty of money to spend on this project. After I'm done, I'll have the most powerful water weapon arsenal in all of Stoney Creek :p
