Looking for APAS-100 anti siphon replacement valve,or parts it's a rain bird part and l'm not getting any help from RB supliers. I am not familiar with anti siphon valves in my area can l replace with regular inline valve.l read somewhere that APAS valve is use in poor water situations is this true any advise would be appreciated.

Here's the PDF with the parts list (http://www.rainbird.com/documents/parts/part_APAS075-APAS100.pdf).
I don't know of anyone that carries parts for those old valves.
You would probably be better off cutting it out and installing the ASVF series valve. (http://www.rainbird.com/landscape/products/valves/ASVFseries.htm)
This site (http://sacramentosprinklersupply.com/Valves.html) says that the valves/parts were no longer available from RB as of 2008. They do say that they have an actuator that will work with that valve.

I tryed to order the valve you sugested.My supliers in Kelowna B.C.said how long are you willing to wait .l said just order it with your next RB order, he said l have never brought one in before and l will never bring one in.l am a small outfit but have always paid on time,l don't know if other small businesses get the feeling there supliers just care about big accounts .Is there an online RB store in Canada the US Online RB store won't ship to Canada.

isn't the entire actuator on those APAS valves replaceable by any Champion-compatible actuator?

Also check with Irritrol. I think they make a 300 Series Actuator that will fit the APAS threads.

As Wet Boots said, the Champion-style threads should work. A brass actuator might be top-heavy for the ASV body. See if Champion has a plastic model too.

The Irritrol 300 series would work, but the 2623DPR is just as reliable and less expensive.
I've used the Suprior plastic actuator on those too, though I don't know if they sell them there.

there must be some Lawn Genie actuators out there in the wilds of B.C.
