    I use both and the pressure pot does an awsome job and is fast. I use a small shop vac to clean up the media than strain it through a sreen as I dump it back into the pot.

    all ones;
    I see you are from Washington. If you are near Tacoma, call Bridgewater's AutoBody at 253-627-4075 and ask for Jack. He has a shipping container blast booth and a pressure pot system. He'd be happy to show you what he has. His shop is by TG hospital. Good luck and have fun!

    1111111,

    I am almost deaf anyways so my ears are hurtin...
    Yeah Pressure Pot which ever you want to call it. All the same. It just seams to have more umph behind it. I use siphon in my cabinet too. But with given the choice of blasting tools the pressure pot seems to be better to me if your shootin in a container like you have.

    This isn't an answer to your question, but just so you know, typing in all caps is the same as yelling. Just thought I'd let you know. I'm not trying to be rude or anything. Just informative.

    The best thing that i have used yet is a pressure blaster. That is what i would use. Play sand will not want to work with it very well due to too large of particle size. The Pressure blasters seem to work alot faster than your conventional siphon blasters. I would just shoot it in your booth and eventually sweep it back up and reuse it.
