Their in the Plumbing ile of every hardware store in different sizes... If you live in the U.S I would suggest lowes or homedepot I've seen them there. For sites.... I'm not sure... I've heard of www.McMaster.com having many things, you might wanna try it. :wink:

Hope this helped (btw they cost a fair good amount of money so be prepared to spend 15 buck or more.... Now that I remember there are some adds here in the spud files site.... They where selling them really cheap (13 dollars I believe).

Yeah, sgort's site is selling 1 inch sprinkler valves for ~$13 USD. Its a great deal especially since they go for over $20 USD on some sites and stores...

And sgort will be happy about the plug.

They cost more than 20$ in every store I've seen.
Besides, there are various models that aren't as suitable to modifying.
Some stores ONLY carry that type.
I modded some 1" Rainbirds (IIRC) I had [obtained] on a drinking binge, that had guide rods, but that would be a pain for most people.

They work great, but I modded them with lamp pipe and JB weld. :P

Even if/when one moves on to piston valves, they make great pilot valves.
Wonder what the shipping price is for those(???) 8)

BTW, I might sell some of my extra stuff for dirt cheap soon.
(don't want to "step on anyone's toes" though)... :twisted: :wink: 8)
