Sprinkler Valve Problem... (not what you think)

Unread postAuthor: Mitchza89 » Sat Feb 24, 2007 5:32 am

Hey guys. I was told by a hell of alot of people that Sprinkler valves are so much better then ball valves. they apparrently have a much faster opening time but...i'm finding i've had much more power from the ball valve. i mean the sprinkler valve is good...but not as good as what i had before. does anyone know what the problem could be? maybe my blowgun doesn't empty the pilot quick enough....i don't know. anyway if anyone could have a solution, it would be greatly appreciated.

regards,

mitch.

Different brands and models of sprinkler valves have different performance. You probably just bought one of the 'bad' ones.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.
