Help me identify this old sprinkler valve

Thanks for the tips on assembly. Valve arrived today and I swapped it out and everything seems to be working great! The zone now shuts off as its supposed to and the valve appears to be holding watertight, I'll recheck it in the morning. Actually ordered a replacement valve for all of my zones, going to replace the innards on all of them as they are all about 15 years old.

Master valve stuck open, where to find it.

If the Master Valve is stuck open why mess with it? If you need a Master Valve in your system, just install a new one right after the backflow device and call it a day. I don't have a Master Valve on my system. My backflow device has a manual shut off valve on it, when I need to turn water off to the sprinkler system, I just turn that valve. Just my .02!

how to stabilize a 24 inch riser with a impact sprinkler on top

Say thanks, thats a good idea. I can dig up the mulch to see which way the pipe goes pretty easily. I'm going to drive to rebars in, one one each side of it and then zip tie the riser to the rebars.

how to stabilize a 24 inch riser with a impact sprinkler on top

I have an existing 24 inch riser that has a shrub nozzle on it. To increase the coverage area, I added a 20 psi reducer and mounted a impact sprinkler on top. It works like I hoped it would, it sprays a larger area. The issue is that when its running the impact sprinkler action causes the riser to wobble back and forth disrupting the spray pattern. Does anyone have any ideas on how to stabilize or straighten the riser so that it does not sway/wobble during use?

Help me identify this old sprinkler valve

Hi, new member here. Can anyone tell me the make and model of this valve? The rest of the system is rain bird, but I can't find any markings on the valve. As you can see a chunk of the diaphragm is missing, so the sprinkler zone keeps running after the Controller turns the zone off. It looks like there are no fancy union sleeves on the valve, just pvc pipe glued to the valve? So no way to twist it off, I'll have to dig it out and cut it out if I can't find replacement parts! Appreciate the help.
