There were a few parts of the valves that looked like they couldve been the check valve. Its not like the pics on the article, where Doom used a 2700 and the valve was easy to spot. Im pretty sure my friend and I cut the right section, we'll find out later today, when the k-mod is finished.

Well, even if you didn't you could be the first ones to replace part of a soaker with homemade versions! In this case a homemade pump assembly. It should work as good as the SS version, just larger.

Pepper K modded a 1200, it's like a 2100 I guess. How did you get the 2100 open? No one has been able to do that.

Take a few pics if you did it right, I could use them in the article.

It actually wasnt that hard to get it open, a few of the screws wouldn't come out, so we just pulled it slightly open and took out the internals. I took a few pics and they are pretty good. Ill send them when I have a chance, im going to Gettysburg today so I can't send them until maybe Sunday.

I'm doing mine on a 1200. It's like it doesn't want to be moded. When I looked in at my first K-mod to increase the ablloon count. It had sheded half of the balloons.

Umm, proper grammer would be appreciated. I think I got what you were saying. You should probably try some 12" balloons, that might work to keep them on.

I'm not made of money either! Balloons are cheap, as cheap as Racer's where I live. You must have some crazy balloon tax or something in your area. :Hey, that's funny.: When I bought balloons, I bought well over 200 of them. I then experimented with them to find which size I thought would do better. The 9" were too small for my 2700's PC, so I used the 12". I always print out articles I'm going to read anyway. Why do you think there are printer friendly pages? ;)

For us to print?
Yeah, there must be a balloon tax, cus here 15 12" balloons cost $1.99!
Thats outragous. I only have $5 that I'm not going to use for hopefully purchasing that 1500. In which case I couldn't of even bout 45! Stupid balloon taxes
