I dont use Hunter Valves typically because they do not last too long. I use
the Irritrol 2400T vavles in installations but when those are not available i
use Rainbird DV valves. I hope that you got some sort of warrenty on this system
and you dont have too much of a problem

That is what they look like. If you still don't know, call the company you had install the system for you and ask if they still have the scematic of your system, and then ask them if they installed the ICV valves.

One last question. I asked for ICVs. However when I looked in the valve boxes, I don't see a model name anywhere. How can I verify that ICVs got installed?

Thanks again,

No. You simply have to get a soleniod replacement kit, screw off the soleniod, take wires off, screw new soleniod on, wire back together with silicon sealed wire nuts.

Glad I could help,

Thanks RVLI,

I searched the forum but didn't find anything that describes how to replace the solenoid. It looks like it just screws in, but I assume it will also have to be rewired. I hope I don't have to replace the whole valve when the solenoid goes bad.

Yes, the Hunter ICV <u>generally</u> tends to have a little bit less of quality soleniod than others, such as the Rainbird 100DV.

There are only a few ways to prevent it from comming...Make sure that there is no dirt or debris in the lines, no sand or anything in the valve, and make sure they are wired correctly. I have had a few fixes where the system wasn't wired properly and that's what caused the valve to not clost completely. There really is no way also to tell how often it will happen.

Very easy to replace soleniods......Search on the forum for solenoid and you should find something. If not, reply.

Hunter ICV valves

I just had a system put in with Hunter ICV valves. After the job, the foreman told me the Hunter valves often have to have their solenoids replaced. I have a few questions about that.

Is this true?
How often does it typically happen?
Can I do anything to lessen it?
How hard is it to replace solenoids and how long does it take?

Thanks in advance,
