    I didn't buy them. This job is a repair for a new customer ( apt. Complex) with 20 valves.. system has been inoperable for about 5 years and I'm having many valves not closing fully...

    Are you sure they have bad diaphrams, maybe only debris.

    Why, I find it hard to believe they are bad.

    The system is about 10 yes. Old and has been off for 5 of them..I seen diaphragms fail less than a year in operation... out of 20 valves all of them being good... I dunno...guess we shall find out though... would you guys pull apart each one since I hav e the lines drained and check each for debris or go ahead and pressurized after each valve to test it? It has probably 10,xxx ft of 2 in.mainline and another 2,xxx of laterals leading up to the valves.... lots of water to pump out of each box.

    Every break was downstream of the valves though..that being said, you still think they may ha e debris in them? I know 5 valves r giving me trouble not fully closing and allowing water to pass. Therefore not giving me enough pressure to push up a whole new zones heads

    It's probably had a main break causing debris to the valves. If only Mike was here to help.
