A: If your valve slams on/off (i.e., water hammer), it may be due to a number of reasons: (1) Excessive water pressure - Install pressure regulator on line before valves to reduce pressure. (2) Valve closing/opening mechanism worn - Replace diaphragm with model number appropriate for your valve. (3) Air bubble in line shut off water at main - Shut off valve and drain the line to release air bubble. Slowly refill the line. (4) Pipe is too small for the flow - Use larger pipe which will slow the velocity of water leading up to the valve and reduce water hammer.

A: I'm not sure this is a malfunction. The popping sound you hear is probably caused by the valve being forcibly closed by water pressure. Looking online I see that high water pressure in the irrigation system can cause noisy valve operation. If I had this problem I would check the system water pressure.

A: This valve does not have a dedicated port to blow out lines when winterizing your irrigation system. When winterizing with anti-siphon valves, professional contractors typically do it different ways. Some will will remove the back flow when they winterized, while others may remove the valve itself to blow out the system and then place an insulating blanket over the valves for the winter so parts don't freeze.
A: It depends on which part of the valve. The main body is PVC, while the valve head is polypropylene and the bonnet is ABS/PC-ABS. Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact our technical support at 1-800-RAIN BIRD (800-724-6247) and we’d be more than happy to assist.
