Well, if the limit is, say 300 psi for example, why in the world would you WANT to reach it? Just use what you think is reasonable and play it safe. Common sense should keep you safe.

And as far as I know, pvc can take a good amount of beating before it fails...at least in some spud cannon designs I've seen, but maybe that's another topic all together...

The whole two page discussion has been about the differences between air and water pressure, and how those effect the failures of pvc. Can you read? Or did you just assume that if you read the first page and ignored the next, whatever you had to say would still be relevant?

Alice came to the fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

Just to sum up the pages in a nice way for you... PSI is the same no matter what type of gas/liquid it is. A pound is a pound.
