    Good point, I've had the same problem with threads. Don't tell anyone, but I have, in a emergency, glued the m.p.t. adapter into the valve and had it work.

    Why would you re-use a valve in the first place? Cheapskates. :hammerhead:

    $1500 per zone should allow you to stock deep enough to not be pikers and hacks. :nono:

    $1500? That was years ago!

    Thanks, it's not me anymore, but Russ's two-wire systems are getting pretty spendy.

    My two-wire systems were inexpensive and reliable. Less than $500 a zone.
