How much pressure can winyl tubing withstand? Because that is what i want to use to connect my airtank to my zero valveand from the zero valve to the barrel.

Any help Would Be Very Much Appreciated

i think your average vinyl tubing will hold more pressure than your average zero valve will. probably at least 100 PSI. if your not using it as a tank, then you won't have a problem at all withstanding the pressure of the passing air. if it's part of your tank, i'd say add another stem valve to keep it from storing air, probably not a great idea.

add a stem valve in between the vinyl tube and whatever your airtank is to keep the pressure inside the tank. anything that's left in the tubing will just dissipate out of the pump.

All vianl tubing has different psi rates. When yuo buy it, it should be labeled...For instance, I went to my hardware store and bought some vinal tubing for my single barreled blastfire. That particular vinal tubing holds 70 psi, but I can pump my bf up to 15 times to rediculous pressure. It shows the psi slightly lower than it is s you dont break it. Anything above 70 psi should work without a problem.

I changed my mind and am putting a T in the zero valve so i can connect it dirrectly to the air tank. I will be using vinyl tubing from the valve to the bolt though because it does not have to hold pressure.
