If it's a typical ASV device built into the valve top as so many valves are today, the lid does screw off. You gotta use the pliers, but use a large set of 2 wrenches to hold the body steady while "breaking" the top loose. Careful, tho' and be ready to replace it if things go wrong. If some yokel overtightened it, things could break. It's a crap shoot..... good luck!

how do I get the anti-siphon lid off?

Hi folks:

I want to replace the seal carrier under the anti-siphon lid on my Orbit valve. The instructions say to "loosen" the lid - apparently it is supposed to come off like a jar lid. I can't budge it. Should I get a big channel-lock plier and go after it? It's plastic. I'm afraid I'll break something!
