View Full Version : Rain bird 5004PC-SAM check valve removable?

I am getting the matrials in order. I am wondering if the check valve is possilbe/not too hard to remove. I have slops so SAM will be good for lower heads but they create problem draining for winter. Now if I buy the SAM model and later I decide not to deal with the winterizing headache can I remove the valve to make them just like the non-SAM model? TIA

The SAM seal is attached to the filter basket. You can simply remove the filter basket and replace with a standard filter basket if you need to change the units to non-SAM version.
