    Default Sprinker Valve Question

    I am mechanically challenged and need pull my sprinkler valves apart because they are auto filling my ballast tanks. Does anybody have a schematic or a website I could go to that diagrams the valves? I am trying to see what it looks like inside before I pull it apart. I know I saw some old post about cleaning algae and other debris out of it. Thank you in advance for the help!

    There really isn't much too them. I think 6 screws to pull the valve apart and there will be a rubber flap in there?? I've had mine apart a few times trying to fix. The selenoid can be unscrewed and there will be a spring in there that you need to watch for. I tried several times to repair mine and ended up putting a new one in for $12 from Home Depot or Lowes. Worked for a day and now it's auto filling. They are junk in my opinion. I need a new solution!

    Replace them with the Irritrol 700 valve. The Orbit valves at Lowes and Home Depot are up and over valves whereas the Irritrol is a straight thru

    Do the Irritrol valves have a similar on/off switch to prevent filling without the switch on?

    You da man, yes per your previous instructions all of the valves are set to off, but the back two tanks are still filling auto filling.

    Try to break it so you have to buy an Irritrol 700 series valve instead.

    Hey Kane boats, on a serious note is it worth just pulling all the valves and upgrading them. I not really into dealing with faulty valves.
