Buy new valves. If the present ones are a problem, get a better valve. I never had a Richdel (the original makers of Lawn Genie) leaker I couldn't cure with tightening, but you may have high water pressure (which means more failures if you just repair them) Rainbird makes a 075-DV with 3/4" threads

There's no knowing for sure what your valve is, since Lawn Genie stuff changes all the time now, unlike in the Richdel days.

I have tightened the screws until the heads stripped out and then drilled them out and replaced them. That is not the problem. The problem is that the seats and diaphrams are scarred and will no longer seal. That is why I ask where I can buy replacement diaghprams.

Keep tightening the screws.

leaking genies

I have 4 Lawn Genie's 3/4" valves that I purchased 5 years ago that now leak around the diaphram seal and seat. I can not see a model nimber but the operator is secured with 8 ss phillips head screws. Any ideas where to purchase replacement diaphrams?
