    The talk about solenoids got me to thinking. What is the relative diameter size of various manufacturer's solenoids? Hunter's has a small diameter, Toro/Irritrol have a medium diameter and the only Rainbird one I've seen was a DC solenoid and it was the largest diameter. Are other Rainbird valves/solenoids this large in diameter?

    1" Rain Bird DV & DVF solenoids have a large diameter. 1.5" & up Rain Bird PGA's & dirty water valves have smaller diameter solenoids.
