Paintball Gear Maintenance : Paintball Storage


Hello this is Rob Rubin and you’re watching
Expert Village. This happens every time you go play, you go out and you are having a good
time and then you realize that you’ve got a pod of paint left over. It is not really
enough to go shoot at the range or there is just no time, or whatever and you think well
I’ll hold on to this for next time. Well how do you store paint? Paint as we have discussed
before is a gelatin shell with a water based type of fill. What that means is that this
stuff can change. It deforms in bad weather. So how do you store this stuff without having
it turn into a gelatanous goo or having it turn into marbles? It is pretty simple, all
you need to do is store it in room temperature. What I like to do is take an old pod and I
just store the paint in an old pod and leave it some place where it is going to be cool
and dry. Other than that, it is really low maintenance. I’ve had paint sit there for
18 months and it was still okay. What you want to do though is every once in a while
give it a quick rotation and the reason you do that is because the fill on the inside
is, well it’s fill, like liquid and liquids if you let them sit long enough will eventually
disperse into their layers of density. It is really cool to look at but it is really
bad on he paint itself. So every three weeks or so whenever you think about it, give the
pod a rotation and then go play on your computer or something.
