Modding a 3/4" Sprinkler Valve?

Unread postAuthor: FishBoy » Sun Aug 10, 2008 11:17 am

sorry, quick question; is a 3/4" sprinkler valve as easy to modify as a 1"?
I'm asking this because all the tutorials i see use 1"

Yes just as easy. The Orbit Watermasters are the easiest to work with although others can be made to work as well.

I have a quick question of my own. In the future, could you please use a topic title that actually tells people something about your question before they have to open the topic?

"Sprinkler valve question" would have been fine. "Quick question" is little to no use.

I'm not having a go at you, but topic titles should give someone at least a rough idea of the subject.

EDIT: Missing words in one sentence. D'oh!

I agree Ragnarok.

This question has been asked before. But as someone had already said, yes they are just as easy.

1 inch and 3/4 inch sprinkler valves are exactly the same size overall. With the exact same diaphragm. The only difference is the thread size.

4. Topic titles must be descriptive.

Example:

A good example is "Help needed with ignition".

A bad example is "HEEEEELP!".
