Thanks Ray – I appreciate your response –
I am returning the original valve ( orbit diaphragm style ) for a motorized ball valve – it was a bit more expensive, but it looks and feels like the real deal –
I decided to go with a non-solenoid style – ( a solenoid would always revert to closed – or open – when it loses power ) – instead I am choosing to use a valve that only needs a few seconds of power to open or closed and then remains in that state without power – I’ll be writing some code to ensure it functions properly if there’s a power outage – it’ll all be controled by a ‘nodemcu esp8266’ arduino type device – here;’s a link to the valve and the nodemcu –
