I love these Hunter boxes. This one is running a little low on mps since that is what we use 90% of the time. I ended up getting several of them for free on the last promotion they had. I have 3 that are stocked. It cost me $700-800 in stock each time(ouch!) mainly because of the mps, but it is so nice to have everything you need.

if that Rainbird valve were really old, it would have an ITT u-frame loose-coil solenoid

I doubt it, but I stopped paying attention to Rainbird brass valves when they made a seemingly needless change in design that made the old diaphragm assembly obsolete.

It is older, since it has an external bleed.

They never will remove the external bleed on their brass valves. The manufacturers have learned that bleed screws are worth having.

I agree, with external beeds, you can tell if you've even got hydraulics and be able to bleed the system. My choice is external and internal bleeds.

I agree, Mike, real valves bleed both ways.
