Some new things in the works to be offered by PSP in the near future:

Viton tubing by the foot 1/8" I.D. X 1/4" O.D. 60 durometer

Plans for Fiji water bottle tank kits that include any combination of aluminum cap, single and double barb fittings, 1ft. of Viton tubing, a new heavy clunk design with brass tubing and barb and maybe some Velcro strapping. This will be a builders kit where the clunk will need some sweat solder and the fittings will need to be installed in the owners supplied bottle. Initial plans will be for all three sizes of Fiji bottles along with the Smartwater bottles.

Plans for a limited run of 3/16"I.D. single and double barb fittings with Viton o-ring for the super giant scale Nalgene bottle guys.

Planing stages of 45 degree and/or a 90 degree single and double barb Viton o-ring fittings to help with clearance problems with high mounted tanks and the underside of the hatch.

Mintor 33-38 prop drill jigs are being cut as I type this and will be available soon.

We are actively taking ideas on things guys want or need that isn't out there yet or need to be improved upon.

Has anyone used the Naked Juice bottles. They are square like the Fiji but have a wider cap. Not sure about the cap but it does make it easier to get the nuts on inside.
