Personally, I thin kthat as a beghiner to spudding, a piston valve would be your best bet to go with, as a piston can be made from anything you find around your house (My piston gun uses an old felt-tipped pen as the piston). There is little that can go wrong, and is more powerful than a solenoid/sprinkler valve if made correctly.

BUT if you do inscist on a sprinkler valve, then eBay would be a great place to start looking if your local stores don't sell them.
