Yeah, and in 20 years they redesigned the diaphragm how many times?

Those brass bleed screws were a joke too.... or maybe it was just the nylon washer that was the problem.....I've had about a 50/50 track record on being able to make one of those bleed screws stop leaking once turned on.

Frankly, I think Toro did a better job with the Flo Pro... the ones at my house have been going for something like 14 years. And only one redesign of the diaphragm... :laugh: and one of the solenoid.

Yes it had issues. Heck we've all got issues. What's a few issues in the life of a valve? I enjoyed tinkering with it. What can I say.

the valve was already there, we ripped up the zone it was attached to when installing the waterfalls, i figured what the heck we'll use this valve to run the fills... guess that was a mistake. of well.

Until the body cracks..I have replaced many because of hairline cracks....
Not me, but I don't see that ABS-body valve as much as the nylon-body MPT x barb version.

I wonder if there are some shifting-clay issues in locations with cracked valve bodies (assuming they aren't suffering freeze damage) ~ Poly systems might also work out differently, as well
