    Does going from a 1/8" ID hose to a 1/16" ID hose increase the pressure to the cannon?

    My guess is that it does increase the pressure but reduces the volume.

    Pressure will not increase. Flow will be less. The cannon will be just as powerful either way, just not as fast with the smaller hose.
