In that case, get yourself a QEV - much more efficient than a sprinkler valve, doesn't need modification and less than 5 quid posted!

I agree with JSR. I recently spent a lot of time looking for sprinkler valves. I then did a bit of research on QEV's and Piston's and realized a QEV is much easier to acquire and is much better than a sprinkler. Have a look at this website, it is where I buy most of my pneumatic parts from. There QEV's are rated to 10 bar. http://www.airlines-pneumatics.co.uk/ :D
