Valve replacement

I have a old system with galvanized pipes and valves. I would like to replace the valves with electronic valves. The problem that I have is that one of the valves is 1 1/4 inch in size. I cannont find that size in an electonic valve. Any suggestions? Thanks.

That won't affect pressure or flow rate?

What is that valve operating...how many heads or GPM I should say....

If it is low enough you could use a 1 inch valve and save about 50 bucks..or more.

Is there any backflow protection on the old system? A complete modernization should include bring it up to code.
