    I need a couple of diaphragms or repair kits for a 205PR Richdel valve. 1"
    Is there a vendor someplace that handles these? Are Richdel valves still being made?

    Any distributor who can get Irritrol product can get you the Richdel diaphragms.

    I have picked them up ad Home Depot in a pinch. They don't always have them though. But any supplier should.

    Were the HD parts labeled Lawn Genie?

    Don't remember. they also carry solenoids for the Lawn Genie/Hardie/Richdel/Irritrol valve. MUCH MUCH less expensive then the supply house.

    I've seen that. Any Irritrol stuff of pro grade, like a solenoid, flies off those shelves. A 3/4-inch version of the R204 was once stocked by HD.

    Glad to know that some people have time on their hands to peruse the HD
    sprinkler stock. I looked once, when with a friend buying plywood; it affected
    my life to this day.

    I was wondering what the masses had access to, and whether it was of quality. Beyond the Lawn Genie Richdel product, and the Orbit PGP, and maybe a Toro 570, it was a Watermaster kind of place.

    yes, definitely a Watermaster place. I do get most my copper fittings and pipe from there as it is cheaper as well.
