Toro

[b]I’m looking to replace a malfunctioning valve I have , its about 8 years old . I think the P/N is 280-05-14. Any idea how / where I can get something like this? Is there a more recent part that will fit it? I know that the Flo-Pro valves have been discontinued .Do you happen to know if a later model toro valve top (maybe ez flow type) would screw onto the base I have plumbed in so I would not have to do any plumbing to replace the valve?[/b]

Flo-pro

I think I held an ez-flo in my hand once. I'm not a fan of jar tops at all. I seem to remember the ez-flow looking much like the irritrol jartop which is not compatible with the flo-pro. I don't believe you're going to find any other valve with replacement parts for the flo-pro. You could always just buy the parts you actually need to fix the valve if it needs parts at all. --

There are no retrofits for the old Flo-Pro body. Best to replace the whole thing.

Pro flo parts are still available, but i've found that on old valves the new diaphrams cause the valve to leak out the threads
