    Usually on the small valves we just buy the entire valve and replace the top of the unit....but I am into some 1 1/2" Rainbird valves and those babies are a little pricey to do that. My question is .....Is there a lot of different diaphragm used in the Rainbird line? I guess I pull the diaphrahm out and take it to John Deere and match it up? I beleve it is a PE series it has the molded in studs that hold the top with nuts on them.
  2. The PEB 1 1/2" and 2" use the same size diaphragm.....
