Champion Valves and Actuators

The picture I was looking at is here on the Irritrol website but I see what you mean. The picture is likely a bigger valve. I looked at the "models and dimensions" section below the image and saw the 1" version is the smallest of the 100 Series so the picture is likely one of the bigger models. Issue solved.

Champion Valves and Actuators

Interesting. Does your new trick save you on cost or does it just help to know they're interchangeable? To me the website image of the 100 Series looks different around the shaft area. 1) the stem on the 100 Series seems to be brass and 2) the shaft on the 100 Series image has reinforcing "ribs" (not sure what else to call them) going halfway up the shaft but the 300 Series is just a cylinder at that point. Do you notice that on the website too? Do the 100 Series you have access to look like the...

Champion Valves and Actuators

I ordered the 300 Series instead of the 2623DPR. It's the same but made of glass reinforced nylon. I received them today but noticed they're stamped "100 Series" not 300 Series. May just be a minor manufacturing error because they look exactly like the 300 Series and nothing like the 100 Series. Here's a picture and a close-up of the number.

Champion Valves and Actuators

Quoted from "mrfixit" Just change the actuator. The brass body lasts forever. The only thing that might need replacing is the float if the rubber washer is bad. Or the cap washer which will come in the float kit. I like the Irritrol 2623DPR. I've installed hundreds of them. I haven't had a problem since 2000 when there was a design flaw. Or if you're changing the whole valve. I like the 2700 series. If you install these valves in place of your brass valve bodies just note that the ports will be...

Champion Valves and Actuators

MrFixit, Which Irrotrol Valves or Actuators do you like? I'll try some. My system is plumbed for a union fitting on the output side of the valve. Do they make valves like that? I didn't see any on their website. I could try just an actuator.

Champion Valves and Actuators

Quoted from "mrfixit" The spring's on the inside of the Champion actuator. It's on the outside of the Superior actuator. I'm pretty sure that Champion is out of business so I doubt they're selling them with springs on the outside now. The diaphragms are about the same size. The one you bought must be for the mini Take that Champion actuator apart and see if there's a spring in there. I've always used Superior brass actuators and Irritrol plastic actuators. Only one time did I install the Champi...

Champion Valves and Actuators

Is there an known issue with champion 1" brass actuators made between 2014 and 2016? I bought a few of them during that time and noticed they don't have a spring on the lower stem like other brands of actuators. I thought at the time that maybe they came up with something new or innovative but now it seems they're back to selling a version that looks more like the other brands of actuators. Usually there's a reason for changing a design so I thought I'd ask here. (I'll upload some photos compari...
