    Aight are there any tricks when the seat of the valve has some small micro groves in it? I have always just cut them out and repalce them.

    Just thinking what about using really fine sandpaper (like 2000) to sand out the bad spots.

    You could always invent something. Or just stick with brass valves. You running sandy water?

    You gonne pay your mortgage spending your days sanding valves?
     
  5. Some ideas are best kept from getting into your head. When I see an irrigation fustercluck I try to guess the mental thought process of the irrigation guy or guys that created it. Basically most bad decisions are made in my opinion due to being strapped for time. Sometimes it is pure laziness looking for the easy way out. Then of course there is just plan ol lack of experience.

    There's also the "It's not MY time or parts I'm wasting - the boss can just bill 'em more"!

    I would agree with what you are saying. I have already cut the valve out and was just wondering.

    So, what scarred the seats in the first place? Sand?

    I think it was a tiny rock from install. The scares are tiny.
