Had an engineer H.O. last week trying to tell me how to test for voltage on a stuck valve, when I know well enough it is a diaphragm. Especially when I have the controller unplugged. He thought it needed a second signal to shut down the valve. It's not a latching solenoid.
You know, I bet I could rip your work to shreds if I wanted too, and place you into that very same category of amateur hack pretending to be a professional. Is it really necessary to rip some HO (and a dead one at that) and new one on a public forum? Of all the shallow petty bullshiit ........
