highbanker questions
« on: November 24, 2008, 12:35:08 PM »
I'm building a highbanker and wondering what the best spraybar - water setup would be?
I've seen the pvc drilled and capped. would it be beneficial to get a bunch of brass high pressure fittings and use these instead of th drilled holes?

Also does there have to be a secondary water feed to the sluice? or does the spray bars provide enough  <-dont~know->

The spray bars should do it,for water flow.I had a idea for a spray bar... take a gas powered pressure washer wand
and plug the end and drill stagerd holes. 1600 psi  8) lol!!!@*
Now what I don't know
#1 will it blow up  <-dont~know->
#2 will you get wet  <-thinking-> <-dont~know->
#3 will the pressure eat through your highbanker [&whistle#] <-dont~know->
Now what I do know
#1 the rocks will be sparkling clean <-yes_>
#2 clay won't stand a chance  <-yes_>
#3 most likely will scare any bears away DEVIL&??
