General Frequently Asked Questions
In normal conditions Water Rokit will fly to approximately 30 metres (100 feet) – about the height of a 10 storey building!
The Water Rokit launches itself automatically, and this happens when the pressure builds up enough to release the inflationary tube which is around 25psi.
Yes. Looked after properly, your Water Rokit should provide many years of fun with countless take-offs. If the Water Rokit lands on a hard surface e.g. concrete then sometimes this may damage the carbonated drinks bottle, and you may need to replace it. Spares are available separately, like replacement pressure tubes, as well as the Rokit tail assembly parts if these get lost.
No. Although the Water Rokit won’t fly very high without a propellant fuel such as water. Try it and see for yourself!
Pick up the bottle at arm’s length and slowly undo the white top, with care, as you would with a fizzy drinks bottle that has been shaken.

Frequent questions about Usage & Assembly
The assembly is very simple – just follow the picture instructions below.
A large open space is recommended like a playing field. You should allow a radius of at least 40 metres (130 feet) around the Rokit launch area as on a windy day the Water Rokit will rarely land close to where it took off from. You must also ensure it is safe to launch the Water Rokit – you must not launch it in a densely populated area and you must never launch your Water Rokit near overhead power cables or similar obstructions. Be aware of nearby trees so as not to lose the Water Rokit on its descent. Be mindful of other people that may be in the area or within the Water Rokit landing zone area.
Under normal operating conditions the Water Rokit will fly to around 30 metres. At around 25psi the black rubber nozzle is designed to expand allowing the brass plug on the yellow pressure tube to be automatically ejected. It is the amount of pressure build-up that ultimately determines the acceleration of your Water Rokit and thus the height of flight achieved. You must not modify the Water Rokit in any way to make it fly higher, as it has been designed to work safely at the pre-determined pressure settings. Modifying the Water Rokit could damage the product, and be dangerous to the operator and spectators when using the Water Rokit.
