leaking sprinkler valve

Unread postAuthor: tonnor » Sat Jan 09, 2010 5:43 pm

I finally finished my tennis ball cannon.As i was pumping it up air kept leaking out the barrel .I checked the site to find the problem and finally figured out that the tawainese blow gun was leaking and not letting it build pressure.I changed blow guns and now i have a leak around the port that i epoxied where the solenoid screwed in.So now i have a question.When i take the 6 screws out and remove the top then flip it over there are two small ports.Can i fill either one of these with epoxy and still have a functioning valve.If so which one the one closer to the center or the one on the outer rim.Thanks for the help so far.

Pictures would be nice, otherwise I have a hard time picturing what you are talking about.

Check out The Sprinkler Valve. Lots of good info.

To answer your question without answering your question, the only hole you need on the top of your valve is the exhaust port that is connected to the pilot valve. All others are irrelevant.
