    Ballast pumps check wakemakers or Bakes? Sprinkler valves can be purchased from lowes/HD or http://www.sprinklerwarehouse.com/Sp...alves-s/36.htm. Irritrol is what is in my boat and I think they are pretty standard for sprinkler valves but the more knowledgeable folks will chime in here.

    Yeahp. The irritrol valves can be found at Home Depot for like $12. Just take an old one in and compare. You can also upgrade to the Irritrol 700 series which has better through-flow. That'll run you about $75 for three. You can find them at sprinkler supply stores, or online. If you are going to replace the stock Rule pump, check out Wakemakers Supra/Moomba ballast pump upgrade package. It runs about $900, but fixes all of the inherent issues with the GIII system. If you're gonna spend $300 anyways, you may just use the stock stuff for a bit longer and save your money for the actual solution instead of patching. Thats what I'm doing anyways. It's my winter project.

    Beejwest, the 110 volt solenoids work with a 12 volt system?

    Sprinkler solenoids work on 24 V AC - Not 110. 12 V DC works perfectly for these solenoids.

    Now is your chance to do the system right. I would seriously consider totally reworking the system and do away with the restrictive sprinkler valves.

    I second what MLA said, again! The new solenoids should say 24 volt on the side. Those work fine on a 12v system.

    Mike I knew you'd be in here stating this and I agree! I need to do mine but next year. OP if your funds allow it, redo the system.
