We don't know why, but there's nothing more fun than firing things 100 feet into the air. This may be the nearest you get to launching your own rockets but at least you won't be calling Houston with a problem.
An ingenious piece of kit to keep teenagers and adults alike occupied outdoors, the Aquapod allows you to launch a 2 litre plastic bottle up to 100 feet into the air.
Simple to use, pour some water into an empty 2 litre pop bottle, secure it over the launch tube and use an ordinary bicycle pump to pressurise the Aquapod. Once the check valve begins to release pressure and water, stand back with the 15 feet of string attached, give a quick short tug and marvel as your new rocket soars up to 100 feet in the air!
The Aquapod is built with high quality thick durable plastic and incorporates a safety valve that releases pressure at 60psi for added safety, ensuring the system is not over pressurised.
The perfect gift for children aged 14 years and over and grown-ups who like to fire things in to the sky, the Aquapod is an attractive gizmo that's sure to provide hours of outdoor entertainment.

Bought for a Seventieth birthday present. Recipient and 2 y/o grandson spent an afternoon launching it. Recipient's wife says it was the best present of the day!
Review of AquaPod
Good fun for children and adults alike but educational too. Very easy to use and set up!
Very Good not Great
I bought this AquaPod launcher for an activity with a group of 15 six and seven year olds. It worked and most of the rockets went up in the air, but nowhere near the claimed 100 feet. Some rockets did not launch and stayed on the launcher. I think for the launcher to be as effective as it could be, it should be pointed out that a large bike pump is essential. Overall, the launcher looks great, is durable and fun. Be prepared to get wet when the rockets go into the air!
Bought the AquaPod as a birthday gift. Was well received and great fun. Use in an open space and have lots of fun.
Water rocket fun
This AquaPod is so much fun for all ages, you do need some space such as a park, field or beach. It does require a bit of trial and error to get the technique right. Use a good fizzy drinks bottle wih 1/3 of water. We were launching in the evening and attached mini glowsticks to find the bottles in the dark. A must have for summer fun.
I bought the AquaPod as a present for my partner's 31st birthday. A little tricky to guess the amount of pumps you need to get it just right so it went off a few times without pulling the cord. But it fires really high and was very impressive, the children were amazed and enjoyed it every time. You need a fairly big area to do this in as it can land quite far away. Not one to be used by smaller children but great for them to watch. Overall a really fun big boys toy.
Aquapod works really well once you find the ideal plastic bottle for optimum launch, the popular brand of cola bottle seemed to be the perfect projectile. Bought this for my future son in law and he loved it.
A must have for any kid or dad, hours of fun for little money. Well made and works best with Coca Cola or Pepsi bottles.
