    I cant say ive ever see that wire cap setup. Although i do remember them for a short period of time. Most people bought the regular pigtail version like all other valves come.

    This was toro's quick and easy answer to eliminating grease caps/wire nuts.

    It basically sandwiches down on the wires and holds them in place. with grease.

    looks like a toro flo-pro valve. best bet is a new valve. it will save you a call back it has always been a semi problematic valve

    I've found the newest redesigned diaphram works in most cases. I should post some pics of the difference between the two.

    I usually just replace them but there are times when in it's a huge PITA.

    They still are the worst valve ever made and should never be used in well or lake water applications.

    A Toro Flo Pro for sure. We have TONS of these in the ground as back in the day the company I work for was a HUGE Toro installer....

    Flo Pro's are a POS, rip it out and replace it with a DV or something. Stay away from the Toro EZ Flow and the Toro TPV! We have had great luck with K-Rain 7001 series valves when the Rain Bird DV issue was happening.

    What's the problem with a Toro EZ-Flow, since from afar, they look just like the Irritrol 2400?

    Same solenoids as the Toro TPV. About a 38% failure rate out of the box from what I have seen.
