You could just use a 1", two 3/4" ones or just make a piston valve..

When you go up in sprinkler valves the price goes up exponentially.. If you want to wait for his then no problems.

What exactly are you building with a 1-1/2 valve? Unless it is going to be used as a pilot valve, I would reccomend just getting a 1 inch one. I agree with inonickname though a piston valve would be much better.

Yeah, it's that important.

May want to go even larger in that. Use GGDT and model it with 2 1 inch valves. One of the pages on the site has the values to use for a 1 inch rainbird. A 1.5 inch is about the same as dual 1 inch.

Then model a 2 inch piston.. :D

A Richdel 1.5" solenoid sprinkler valve in my neighborhood runs about $80.00 retail. I plan on removing my front lawn in a few months when the weather cools. In the lawn area, there are 18- 1.5 Richdel and 4- 2.0" Richdel valves (along with 3000ft of 1.5" sch 40 and 800ft of 2.0" sch 40 pvc pipe) I'll be removing. I know that doesn't help you now but......If you're still looking for a valve at that time, let me know and I'll send you one if you pay UPS.



he said if i pay ups so i think i will do that instead of paying, i think im set, now i need to know where to get a powerbox with an on-off and a momentary with a red safety jack over it

links?

colty,
I found a pic of the valve at this site:
http://www.klsupplies.com/images/irrigation/rd216pr150.jpg

I think I have an out of service valve in my shop that I could ship now rather than make you wait for months. I don't remember but, the solenoid threads may be stripped or worn. In either case it could be repaired with some Loctite or teflon tape. Email your shipping address to me and I'll see what it'll cost to ups. I can ship it in a couple of days when I go into town.

i would use those valves in unison and use and electronic valve to activate them pneumatically because if you don't mod them your pretty much wasting the power of those valves
