Weird Valves

Posted by Retired Geezer on July 28, 2006

Customer called me with a problem. Couldn’t find the valves.

Here’s where we started looking.

Notice the broken PVC, victim of overenthusiastic Weed Whipping.

In my youth and inexperience, I didn’t recognize these little beauties.

They are Electro-Hydraulic valves. The solenoid opens a little valve and allows water to shoot through and open The Big Valve.

All the Valve Finder tool does is vibrate the solenoids. That doesn’t help locate the actual valves.

I told the customer that I was unable to locate them without digging up the yard.

Does anybody else know a different way?
