    Re: Gato Ballast Tank Test
    Hi Doug. I was thinking exactly as you. The pressure vessel I have made is of 4mm section at 52mm i.d. I have a sealed bolted rod holding the caps is place. The caps are 24mm thick
    Nylon 6
    . The pipe connector is M5 with a 2.2mm hole. Not much pressure area here. I think I might continue but taking extra care. I did further tests yesterday and found that the solenoid valve works perfectly when not connected to the pump and under pressure in both directions. The problem is the valve. Do you think I need a more powerful one or do you think the valve only works in one flow direction. For some reason the instructions show a direction of flow but as the valve only blocks the through hole, I cannot see why. The reason I was trying to avoid the piston system was to avoid the out of balance nose or tail first dive.๐Ÿ˜Š
