Questions & Answers

Can this work with an Irritrol Anti-Siphon valve?

Can this work with an Irritrol Anti-Siphon valve?
Asked by: Query
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.

Asked by: parklady
The RBCMVA is only compatible with ¾” or 1” manual anti-siphon or angle valve. If Rain Bird makes a manual valve or angle valve then yes, otherwise it would not work.
