The valve works fine but is rather bulky compared to ones I already have by Orbit & RainBird. You also need to check the fitting size & type if you're replacing an older valve as my older ones were male connectors and this is female.

Will this valve work for a gravity feed system running on 1 pound psi ?

Will this valve work for a gravity feed system running on 1 pound psi ?
Asked by: BigD
Shouldn't be any problem as it works by an electric solenoid and water pressure doesn't have anything to do with it.

can it be used as a main shutoff for sprinkler system?

can it be used as a main shutoff for sprinkler system?
Asked by: Nickname
It could be.....but why. If you only had one circuit then it would work, but you would have a system with two valves inline. If you had more than one circuit then you would have to have two timers. One to open the Main Shutoff and another one to open each circuit. You would not be able to use the same timer to open the main and each circuit. Most locations require a backflow preventer which has a manual shutoff anyway so there is no reason to use an electric valve.

Can this valve be used above the ground as well?

Asked by: Roman
It can, but most install the valve below grade in a valve box. You will need to drain your system and insulate the valve in the winter to protect from freezing. Hope this helps!
