Because it makes a cool trigger like valve, and ball valves are tooo hard to turn.

Are you dumb or are you just stupid?It is not for look's,it is because it works alot better that way. Ball valves open too low,resulting in loss of power.

He's saying the blowgun makes for a cool trigger, not that it looks good.

I have that same valve in my basement. I recall it having a spring. Id have to open it up again to be sure, but I think the placement of everything makes it really hard to tap into it.

could you just drill out the tiny hole the selonoid covers big enough to tap it 1/4 inch?

Almost all valves have springs and springs aren't necessarily bad. A spring might slow your valve opening slightly, but on the other hand it might help seal your diaphram. I recommend taking it out, if helps Great! if not just put it back in.

I'm not 100% sure why people choose those valves more often then not, maybe it's because they're easy to find and provide pretty good flow.

Personally I prefer 90 degree valves over in-line valves. They provide better flow, but they are sometimes harder to find.

No you morons, the Orbit Watermaster, he's asking why we always use the Orbit. :x

We use it because it is readily available, tried and true, does not use a guide rod, and it's pretty lookin.

I have one of those modded, all I did was pull out the guide rod, bent a L into the top part of it and placed it back into the diaphram hole. Works fine.
