    The box of valves I have are dated December 2010. The last system where I put them in has high pressure. It does have a 1.5" master valve though so hopefully that will prolong any failures.

    What was the issue with the T3's irritation?

    Solenoid was not the problem. It was not a Nitro as I earlier thought...it was a Silver Bullet. Punchered diaphram.

    Homeowner had really "locked down" the flow control trying to get it to stop weeping.

    I replaced everything but the body.

    Thanks for everyone's help!!!!!

    You need to learn to repair on first stop... no go backs.
