it was right of me to assume that.

and like i said earlier: if youre gonna blow 100+ bucks on a valve, do it on a supah not a spinkler. (solenoid)

and pimpmann i now understand why they are so expensive but like i said: supah not solenoid.

and spudshot, no one's pissed about prices, we're just curious y these products are so expensive. people shouldn't get pissed about prices, there's usually a cheaper alternative.

the end!

You guys have no clue what your talking about, this isn't directly to you hose_spud, but you don't understand either...

McMaster sells a 1" solenoid valve for $127 something...

Joel sells a 1" sprinkler valve (that has a solenoid) for $17

#1. A sprinkler valve may have a solenoid, but it's not a real solenoid valve....

#2. McMaster sells steel \ iron valves for $127.... they aren't plastic

#3. McMasters valves are make for pressure because they're metal, they can probably do 500 psi +

Back to #1. A sprinkler valve is a diaphragm valve, not a solenoid valve... a Solenoid valve opens an closes a gateway electronically, very fast....
A sprinkler valve uses a pilot that leaks to open the gateway, causing it to be slower to open and slower to close...

I'm a paitball Tech at my local field and all high end paintball guns have solenoid valves in them, I know what I'm talking about.

*slaps forehead*

Oh god, I've got a short attention span sometimes... I thought we were talking about a 3-way valve for some dumbass reason and not a sprinkler valve. Just, forget I said anything.
