the Aquapod Bottle Launcher
The first professionally manufactured bottle rocket launcher has the capacity to launch a 2-liter plastic bottle up to 100 feet in the air.
(Alexandria, Virginia, October 7, 2009) – Great American Projects, Inc. announces the Aquapod Bottle Launcher, a bottle rocket launcher that can launch a 2-liter plastic bottle up to100 feet in the air. The first professionally manufactured bottle launcher on the market, the Aquapod has a built-in brass check valve that prevents over pressurization and is built with high-quality ABS plastic that is thick and durable.
“There are homemade launchers in backyards everywhere; and with the introduction of the Aquapod, we can provide a safe and professional-grade option for those fascinated with the fun and science of launching,” said Mark Micieli, Co-President of Great American Projects, Inc. “We are excited to offer the first product of its kind and are confident it will be a hit with thrill-seeking consumers.”
Unlike other bottle rocket launchers, launching the Aquapod is simple—it requires no assembly and is easily portable. To launch, fill an ordinary 2-liter plastic bottle 1/3 full of water, place it over the launch tube, and secure the latch. Attach a bicycle pump to the front air valve, and give 10 to15 pumps or until the check valve releases. Moving back 15 feet to the launch position, pull the trigger lanyard with a short, quick tug to release the bottle. Watch it soar up to 100 feet in the air.
The Aquapod is engineered for quality and safety, and optimal performance occurs at approximately 60 psi. Its built-in check valve prevents pressurization past this point. Launch height can be affected by environmental elements, and a clear radius of 50 feet is recommended. Adult supervision for persons under 10 years of age is recommended.
