Weathermatic vs. Irritrol

I currently have weathermatic 12000 valves and am getting slight water hammer when the valve turns off. I read that the Irritrol have a slow shut off to eliminate water hammer. Would I be better off with the Irritrol? I had hunter PGV valves which failed in the first year so I replaced with weathermatic. I would replace with the Irritrol 200B. Thank You!

If i were you, i would definatly replace your weathermatic valves with IRritrol. Irritrol is by far the BEST selling valve in this area, and some irrigation distrubuterships only sell irritrol valves. They do operate better, reducing waterhammer,,,,,so if it was up to me, i would use irritrol
