Ball Valve trigger mod

Post by strato_2r5 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 6:18 pm

I plan on adding a trigger to my modded Rattler. I originally planned to swap out the handle part of the metal valve with something like JLS used, but I forgot about the turn stoppers. Any ideas?
Sorry if I'm not active much, busy on another forum and another project non-soaker related.

You could mount the toque arm on the old handle.

I would use a solenoid, but some have reservations about electricity and water [even though the current doesnt (usually) have enough power].
If that isn't your cup of tea, I would suggest using a pulley system to reduce the force required to turn the valve.
I reject your reality and substitute my own.
Quack damn you.
