Hunter Green Richdel

  1. Don't run into this one very often. May be older than some pups on this site. Hope the pics do it justice. A hunter green Richdel valve. The diaphragm assembly matched it.

  3. Back from my dad's time in the trade.
     
  4. Peter did it say Richdel on the valve because we used some just like that back in the early 80's made by Nelson that had metal solenoids...

    It's funny how that valve has been marketed in various versions and so many colors and under so many names. I bet you can find them as Richdel, Lawn Genie, Rainjet, Hardie and Irritrol.

    And in 2 or 3 shades of green, gray, black and tan.
     
  6. It may have been, the label was faded, but I'll dig out of the trash bucket and take another look.
     
  7. safe-t-lawn also had a knockoff.

    Nelson was all about that dark green color for awhile, even having dark green rubber collars around some of their brass heads.

    Heyyyyy, what's this valve doing out of the ground anyway? (being that it's eternally repairable and all that)
