valve not sealing

Unread postAuthor: singularity » Sat Dec 02, 2006 8:18 pm

i got one of these a little while ago

<img src="http://img.epinions.com/images/opti/a0/02/pr-Irrigation-Orbit_WaterMaster_NPT_Inline_Valve_57101.jpg">

just recently got around to puting it in only because i had a working one already on the gun (why fix something thats not broken). i pnuematically modded (this is the third or fourth valve ive modded, all the other ones i have work fine) well any way it doesnt seal, it just lets all the air out the barrel. ive been using a 25hp aircompressor to fill it. i took it apart again and realized the part of the diaphram that makes the seal i made out of some sort of hard plastic, did it dry out or something? so any ideas on how to fix this? o yea i forgot to mention its not just leaking out the barrel, its dumping all the air out the barrel.

holy crap 4585 new post i havent been here in a while

The bleeder vent open? I got one from bcarms.com allready modded, it's just like yours in the picture, and my bleeder lever is flipped down, or up, ok it sticks out to the side. The solinoid was also removed and the hole epoxed shut.

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

Take a picture. The QC on the watermaster hasn't been good lately. 5 out of 7 I bought had problems with the hardwhite portion holding the neoprene sealing face. Used a box cutter to clean it up so it made a good seal. 2 of those were too messy to salvage so they went straight back to the store. They wouldn't even hold back water.

well i pretty much gave up, besides i once again failed at fixing something that wasnt broken. i had a nice working valve on the gun already, i dug it up from my back yard its about 7 years old, and its the only valve i have that hasnt given me any trouble(now that says something about quality). i did notice the hard white plastic part looked pretty beat up on the new valve.

Sounds about right. I've totally given up on that valve type.
