1/2" :P

Anyway goodluck finding a 3/4" version in Australia. Ask most of the Aussies on the forums here they will say Bunnings probably. Just go for the 1" version it will have better performance for only slightly more money. Also check for 'solenoid' valves instead oif sprinkler valves in Australia as thats what they're called over here in New Zealand, as they use a solenoid to open the valve.

you can get quick exhaust valves by mail order, they don´t seem too expensive.

Bunnings sell 25mm ones for 15 dollars, just look in the irrigation section, from there you also might have to use reducers to get down to 15mm.

good luck.
