    Does anyone know, off the top of their head, if there's a device to lock out the ability to manually operate standard irrigation valves (3/4", 1" rainbird type)?

    Antisyphon valves are incapable of being 'locked'

    Figure out the dollar value of a solution to your problem (and start high) and maybe a possible solution exists.

    I know that the valves themselves can't be locked, I was just hoping there was an aftermarket device that would do the trick. The budgets not really high on this one anyway, kind of in the middle of the barrio, If such a thing does exist in Orange County.

    Isn't that referred to as Santa Ana? :laugh:

    Try www.globalindustrial.com They have some gate valve type lock outs that might work....

    ASVs are often put into custom build expanded metal enclosures here, especially if they are brass. If they are plastic, the enclosure is plywood.

    I see it done now and again - ASV becomes straight valve and two elbows
