Send me a thousand dollars and I'll find you one. They've only been out of production for thirty years or so.

Seriously, your question is pointless. There is no difference between Toro hydraulic pin-type valves, SO LONG AS THERE ARE NO FAULTS IN THE CONTROLLER OR CONTROL TUBING. I have replaced a number of 200-00-04 valves with the current model you purchased, and no problems.

You almost certainly have a problem with the controller or the tubing. Find it. Fix it. The means to diagnose a fault have been given to you.

Or you can convert the entire system to electric valves and controller.

Toro Hydraulic Valve 200-00-04

I am sure the valves are normally closed. There is no model number visible just the "GreenKeeper" enscription on the front cover.

My initial question included a request for information on working new or used Toro 200-00-04, are they available anywhere?

My question was to see if you had a controller for normally-open valves, or for normally-closed valves, like the 200-00-04 valve.

But aside from that, you can try a test using a pair of locking pliers to squeeze closed the hydraulic tubing connected to the valve in question. Some half-rounds on the pliers jaws will make the operation more gentle on the tubing. If the valve shuts off properly, then you have a leak somewhere in the controller or the tubing.

I did not ask for the serial number, I asked for the model number. Try this, instead ~ is there a water supply connection to the controller?

Identify your controller. Make and model number.

Toro Hydraulic Valve 200-00-04

Does anyone know where I can locate new or used/working 200-00-04 Toro valves?

I was told I could use a Toro 250-00-04 as a direct replacement but after buying 2 from sprinkler whse
neither of them ever shuts down. I have to shut down the whole system from the main shut off valve.

The 200-00-04 I replaced stayed slightly open and dripped into the gutter after the zone timed out but at least it just dripped!

If you have any ideas I can try please reply.
