Richdel 205?

Hello, I have a Richdel valve that I can't get the bonnet off of. I took out the screws and the selinoid, but it seems to be welded on--lol Any ideas? ty

Cut it out and replace it :)

Take a flat head screwdriver and pry the diaphram off

Richdel 205

I'm going to have to try and pry it off...maybe with a razor knife???
I can't cut it out as the smart folks :cursing: that put it in before me poured concrete around it not leaving enough room to do much of anything..duh! And I can't afford to hire someone to come in and cut out the concrete. :(

Just smack it with a hammer. It should pop right off.

buy a very large slip-joint pliers, and you can easily remove the bonnet
