How much does yours weigh? I imagine mine might end up around 10 lbs (5 kg).

A guy at work (actually, one of my Nerf arch rivals) asked me that a while back. I quoted him about US$100. The sprinkler valve is $15, the bike pump is $8, the schrader valve is $1, and the various PVC fittings and cement and spray paint add another few dollars. So, it comes out to about $30 for parts and $70 for labor, which is a pretty cheap rate compared to my day job. Add a few for dollars for an optional electric switch to replace/supplement the manual valve switch.
