Is this valve alright to modify?

Unread postAuthor: BFC » Sun Nov 07, 2010 2:21 pm

Hey,

Im looking at sprinkler valves and I can get this valve : http://www.sprinklersupplystore.com/product-p/216b.htm

the Irritrol 216b 1 1/2in

can it be modified to open with a blowgun or pilot valve? or is it a no go?

thanks

I've never seen a sprinkler that cannot bet modded, but I would go for a different one anyway. While you probably could modify this one, try to find a cheaper and simpler one. Thats what I think.

I have about a dozen of those left over from decommissioning my lawn sprinklers. Those are excellent valves. They're tough, open fast and full but, they are expensive.

I got my sprinkler valve from Amazon.com for about $15.

They're even cheaper then when I bought mine! :D
