Both Jeffrey and I. I built my system last year, just to prove the concept/theory. Works great, but was hard to set up with enough 'safeties'. There'* some old posts here about it somewhere.

These systems can be purchased on the open market, but a decent one will cost you about $800. That'* why we built our own. Jeffrey'* system uses the WS reservior as a source, but mine is a standalone tank in the trunk.

I use the utility air compressor to control water tank pressure, then a 12v shutoff valve to deliver water. A pressure switch controls tank pressure. Everything runs through filters (incoming air and outgoing water), and I have safety switches in my shift quadrant to prevent it from delivering water when in park or neutral.

Jeffrey can give you a rundown on his system too. You're up Jeff!

ok the reason i put "alcoholics please help" water/alcohol get it? (ok bad joke). anyways 800 bux WOW thats pretty expensive, i was talking to a guy at a local performance shop he said they used to make their own also, (im most likely going to atempt building my own). It doesnt sound easy though. Any extra help would be really appreciated.

Thanks
Darcy
