I need a couple of diaphragms or repair kits for a 205PR Richdel valve. 1"
Is there a vendor someplace that handles these? Are Richdel valves still being made?

Any distributor who can get Irritrol product can get you the Richdel diaphragms.

I have picked them up ad Home Depot in a pinch. They don't always have them though. But any supplier should.

Were the HD parts labeled Lawn Genie?

Don't remember. they also carry solenoids for the Lawn Genie/Hardie/Richdel/Irritrol valve. MUCH MUCH less expensive then the supply house.

I've seen that. Any Irritrol stuff of pro grade, like a solenoid, flies off those shelves. A 3/4-inch version of the R204 was once stocked by HD.

Glad to know that some people have time on their hands to peruse the HD
sprinkler stock. I looked once, when with a friend buying plywood; it affected
my life to this day.

I was wondering what the masses had access to, and whether it was of quality. Beyond the Lawn Genie Richdel product, and the Orbit PGP, and maybe a Toro 570, it was a Watermaster kind of place.

yes, definitely a Watermaster place. I do get most my copper fittings and pipe from there as it is cheaper as well.

I ordered a couple from Basic Irrigation so will see how that works.

I had not heard of this company before.

Our HD recently closed but they did not stock any irrigation parts or supplies. And of course they did not have an answer as to why not when asked.

Thanks for the help, folks.
