rainbird solenoid failure

Has anyone else experienced solenoid failure from the Rainbird anitsiphon valves in like a 3 year lifespan? I called a rep and they said this is normal... I call bs.. I have had deformed, rusty old solenoids dating back 10 plus years still working as ugly as they are.. I am a little torn at buying rainbird anymore for that reason.

antisiphon valve hiccup/surging...

So.. in 22 years I may have experienced this a time or 2 before.. system is a well system on 3/4" sched 40 pvc main(existing) set up on 3/4" Hunter antisiphon valves with 4" popups on swing joints with MP rotators 3000 series.. The system operates well just when shutting off it hiccups at one or two of the valves.. The valves are minimal one foot above the highest head. Lateral runs are long...any quick fix? inline check valve before the valves?? I flushed em several times.. suggestions?
