Its not any better to have three wires rather than the normal two. It will use more water tight connections and will give you more areas to check if there is a problem.

Is this a better way to install valves? I mean what is the advantage of wiring the valves together with addl common wire?

As Boots has stated, any two wire solenoid valve will be compatible. All you will have to do is connect the common wire to your other common wires from the other solenoids.

It's really a two wire system, with an extra common connection, for stringing the valves together.

Repair Help

I must replace TORO Flo-Pro Series valve (280-06-14)which uses a 3-wire solenoid. (Station wire and common wire on one side of solenoid and a common wire on the other side which connects between valves in a series)

All new valves I find use a 2-wire system.

1. Are there any brand of valves on the market that use 3-wire?
2. Is there a way to use a 2-wire valve in a 3-wire system?
