I have posted these on here before but didn't get any kind of feedback on them. I am going to try again. This is a super simple mod that I came up with that has worked really well for me. I bought actual 12vdc valves that are 1 inch (rather than 3/4 inch like the standard ones). These are industrial type not residential sprinkler system orbit valves.

These absolutely increased the flow rate due to the over size inside that the fact that they open all the way up inside because water pressure isn't needed to open them like the orbit valves. Also these are way more reliable because they are actually 12 vdc and not AC coils like the orbit.

You are still not going to fill and empty like you would if you were using individual pumps per bag like the johnson or jabsco setups but it will increase flow and increase reliability.

Because I am going to an individual pump per bag setup I am getting rid of everything under the hood in my old boat. I will sell the header, valves, and rule pump. I will also sell the smaller pumps for emptying if needed. I have no use for them any more.

This ad is for just the valves but if you want to make me an offer for the whole system let me know, I will put it all in a box and send it to you.

I want 25 dollars per valve, and I have 4 valves available. 1 of them is unused and the other 3 are used for one season with 0 trouble. Let me know what yout guys think and if your interested. The valves or the entire setup would be great for someone wanting to do a from scratch setup on an older boat or just for spare parts. I also still have the older orbit valves is you really want them your welcome to them at no additional charge.

Obviously treverspence got in first, but I am interested as well. I'm thinking these could be beneficial to the crossover system I want to do for switching lockers from regular to goofy wave- I'd like to reuse the water.

If I am missing out on buying them, I'd love some specific info on what manufacturer/ model they are.

Sorry guys I sold these a while back. The do work really good though. I have a hard time keeping up on how to post pictures and keep them up on the site.

I used 1 in 12vdc industrial type valves. I got them from a company called BOPU part number 2W-25. These valves significantly increased the flow to the bags last year. My biggest issue was the draining time when switching from regular to goofy foot. They were exactly like these

I paid like 65 each for them, they were an exact replacement with some reducers.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/120932583805 found these for $35 each. As far as wiring do they wire in the same way as the Orbit sprinkler valves?
