I've been meaning to take the time to disassemble my valve and snap some photos. When I do (probably over the weekend), I'll update the e-book with photos. I was just too anxious to put this out there for you guys.

Also, I've been working on another method of further modification. It will be added in the book as well.

Thanks for all the positive responses, guys. And, yes, a lot of the info in this book can be found right here at Spudfiles. As mentioned, just search.

I just downloaded the zip file and it extracted fine for me. I zipped it using WinAce (it zips and extracts everything) if that helps any.

I had a problem with unzipping it with Windows' own unzip tool, but I managed it with WinRAR.

For people who are having problems and don't have another unzip tool, I've rehosted it on Mediafire here:

Of course, if hubb017 has a problem with my hosting of it as such, I'll happily take it down, but this makes it a little easier for people without an unzip tool that can open the pdf.

So are there any others to mod a sprinkler valve other than replace the diaghram and pneumatic actuation?

I've got a few ideas I'm tossing around right now. When I perfect them, I'll put them in this book.

Also, I'll zip it using WinZip, so there should not be any issues of extraction for most of you guys.

Normally, the pressures will be written on the package, however, this is the max pressure for water, not air. But it gives a good starting point.

I've taken mine (a 3/4" Oribt Watermaster and a 1" Rainbird) both to 120psi with no problems.
