Answers

It works on a Champion Anti-Siphon valve where the normal shut off valve is 3/4 inch threaded and the DIG Actuator just screws into replace the shut off valve. You have to remove the overflow cap to screw in the Dig Actuator and then replace it after the Dig is installed. The Irritrol Anti-Siphon valve shut off valve does not appear to have the same design and configuration as the Champion.

can this product be used on other brand name valves?
