FEBCO 765 Retainer & Check Assembly Breaking

You're right I would have to plumb it in, but is it downstream or upstream of the PVB?

FEBCO 765 Retainer & Check Assembly Breaking

I just sent an email to FEBCO concerning this, but thought I'd ask here as well. Every year when I blow out the irrigation system I find that the little tabs on the retainers break off, as do the legs on the check assembly because of corrosion in the FEBCO 765 BFP. So, I'm wondering if FEBCO make stainless steel Retainers for the 765 BFP instead of the bronze/brass material? Same question applies for the "legs" on the check assembly. When they break off they frequently lodge themselves in the di...

Blowing out Febco 765 PVB

My apologies, no problem with that at all. However, with no way to attach an airline before the BFP if one doesn't remove the internals & plug off the BFP then the poppet/retainer/check asm. will vibrate/flutter excessively when pressurizing the system from the test port & possibly cause damage to the BFP components as air is applied in the opposite direction from normal use of the BFP. An expandable plug prevents this damage.

Alkaline vs. rechargeable battery in a controller?

Nope! Didn't try to recharge the alkaline battery. No charger! Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Getting pressurized air to the zone valves, but not to the sprinklers - why?

Thanks for your comment. The air pressure is 60 PSI (3/8" ID hose) and is maintained at that level pretty well. The compressor is 33 gal with a max of 150 PSI, regulated to 60 PSI. I decided to open up the water to the irrigation system, let the pressure build up to 60 PSI on the water tank & then turned on the controller, but did not turn on any of the zones. I wanted to see what would happen if the zone valves just saw water pressure in the manifold. I then walked every zone/every sprinkler & ...

Alkaline vs. rechargeable battery in a controller?

I was just checking the Toro Vision II Plus Series Controller when I noticed in the manual that a rechargeable 9V battery should be used and NOT a 9V alkaline battery. I understand this system is 20 years old & the battery measured 4.6V. I replaced it with a rechargeable.[font=&quot][/font] I'm having problems, but to describe it is very lengthy. So, to head off a possible concern first, could the old battery have caused problems with the valve solenoids?
