This guy knows whats he's talking about ive had bad experiences with rainbirds too. Do most home depots carry orbit watermasters without flow control? I wonder if Ace Hardware has anything?

RainBirds the best brand I've used.... I am currently making MY first pneumatic, but I've modded valves for people I know and Rain Birds always have the best feedback

If you get the right Rain Bird (the kind Joel sells\sold) they work wonders....

Most Watermasters are a nightmare to mod... the 3/4'' in the tutorial is one that is very very good, but the others have the solenoid hole and the middle and/or flow-controls and are much harder to mod

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

These sprinkler valves take 5 min to modify, they are similar to mine but the bleed valve on mine is on the side,leaving the top clear. I have a hunter.

That's what I was think about the whole time Beebs... somehow I confused the Rain Birds and Watermasters...

The Watermasters have a flat top if you get the right kind and are EXTREMELY easy to mod, I believe the model numbers of the good 1" ones are 57100 or something, don't get the 57111, they're much harded to mod


Get a Orbit Watermaster 1" INLINE with REVERSE Flow

Here's a link
