This is a new product I saw in one of my trade journals today (Current issue of Landscape & Irrigation Magazine). I thought it was pretty cool. Would definitely take a little more time to install vs. a standard valve box. But once installed, they have a water tight seal and are said to keep out dirt, water, insects, snakes, rodents, frogs, etc. They say it has a rubber sealed compression lock that seals by tightening the bolt in the center of the lid. I know my service techs would LOVE it if we started installing these. It would make future wiring or valve maintenance a whole lot easier. I don't know. Maybe I'm the only one excited about this. But it looks like a very cool idea to me! .
