We have some old ones at the shop for tough repairs when we cannot replace. They also make an above ground AVB combo as well with that. Or rather, they used to make......

Those old RB valves use their version of a Champion valve convertor.

These first ones came from a krap system, pretty sure one of the techs from our company before me did the flower pot box.

My neighbor asked if I could install a rain sensor for her. After installing she said the one she had never worked and asked if I saw it. I told her the only things connected were the zone wires and the power wires. She then showed me where the sensor was.

This was kind of an interesting find when we dug it up to fix the leak. The brass insert ftg was about 4 barbs long, the new one is about 8 barbs. The way the old one was copper into a galv. tee to a sch.80 nipple into that sch.40 coupler to the brass insert ftg. Off the galv. tee was galv into that globe valve. The leak occurred at the end of the brass insert, there was a hump where whomever installed this didn't cut enough out and eventually the short brass insert poked through.
