First class company and easy to deal with
This is a first class company selling first class products. For the second time in a few weeks, they got me out of trouble with rapid delivery on critically needed parts. Packaging could be a little heavier. One part was lightly damaged, a diaphragm pin was slightly bent but easily repairable

Repair kit matched the original design
I found out that I had a leaky valve after I dug up a sprinkler head that kept running and made a muddy mess. I did some research on how to fix it and found Sprinkler Warehouse. I was able to order the parts that I needed and they fit perfectly. I easily fixed the valve and it no longer leaks. Fortunately, I purchased three repair kits since I have a total of three valves. So, I'm ready to repair the others when they fail. I'm sure the solenoids will also fail at some point, but I know where to purchase them if I need them.

Told this was a replacement part for Richdel T204
DARNELL K on Oct 1, 2018
Only website that I could find that had this kit. I have older valves & needed the parts in this kit to try to repair them.

Christian S on Jul 31, 2018
This is the first website that I could find valve repair parts for the valves I have. I did not want to have to dig up my manifold to replace the valves.
MIKE G on Jul 22, 2018
The diaphragm on one of my valves is weary....replacement is easier than putting in a new valve.
D A on Jul 22, 2018
This should be an exact replacement kit for my Lawn Genie/Richdel R-204 valves.
S T on Jul 18, 2018
Only place in "town".
S T on Jul 15, 2018
It appear to match up with my old Orbitz 204 inline valve diaphram. None of the ones available in local hardware stores work with my valve.

Jay D on Jun 7, 2017
great price and in need of the control.<br /><br />Thanks
B U on Jun 7, 2017
I picked them because I'd rather repair valves than replace them, which would entail rebuilding the whole valve manifold because whoever installed them was an idiot.
P E on May 3, 2017
I have a system that I believe has existing 205 valves that leak a little. Not sure these are the valves I have, but they look identical.
R A on Apr 22, 2017

MIKE G on Jul 22, 2018
Is there a manufacturer box/carton quantity for these (how many per box)? I do not want the pin to be bent or deflected as the diaphragm will stick prematurely in its life cycle.
David P on Jun 30, 2016
I have a Richdel 205 S valve..and need a repair kit ..but do not see anything for Richdel ?
Jim R on Apr 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jim, I bought this R205-kit repair kit for repair parts on rainbird 204 valves, because the parts are exactly the same, except where the rainbird valves use plastic pieces, the irritrol parts are metal and should last alot longer. I have found out that Irritrol makes sprinkler parts and valves for alot of different other manufactures, so look under the Irritrol name for parts first, and Sprinkler Warehouse has everything you will need, and gets it to you Quickly! Good luck!
Can I use this diaphragm to replace the Richdel R204/205's?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are interchangeable but use all the parts in the kit including the lid.
I want to rebuild a Richdel R204 in looking at my R204 it look like the part that makes contact with the solenoid is missing. Will the Irritrol R205-kit include this part.?
Jane B on Feb 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure if I understand correctly. If you mean the little plunger on the solenoid that moves back and forth then no, that is part of the solenoid itself and shouldn't come our from it. Wait... now that I think back, I bought repair kits and new solenoids since everything was so old anyway. When taking it all apart the old solenoids had rubber O-rings that mated against the valve cover and the new ones didn't. The new valve cover and solenoids have a machined surface on them that mate against each other when put together to seal. If your repairing an old valve it might be best to do like I did and buy a new solenoid too, then your assured of everything working properly.
Which end of the diaphragm is up which down?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Looking at the diaphragm you will see that one side has a plastic piece with a "plus" sign in the center and one has a rubber side with a metal piece. The plastic side with the "plus" sign is up as the rubber piece controls the water flow through the valve.
I have a Irritrol 204 valve and I replaced the Diaphragm. the bleeder value works to open the valve but the celluloid does open the value. The celluloid works and if you unscrew it the value opens. what could be wrong?
Charlie on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe you are saying the solenoid works but doesn't open the valve. I don't know how you checked the solenoid, but my guess is that it needs to be replaced. I had a similar experience once but the solenoid was too weak to open the valve even though it appeared to work when it was not connected to the valve.

for 205tf were is the spring positioned in relation to the diaphragm spring? above or below?
bob m on Feb 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The spring goes above the diaphragm fitting on a ring built in the top
of the diaphragm
What is the best way to remove the solenoid from the valve body? Mine has a tab on it. I believe the model is an Lawn Genie204.
Dave M on Oct 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The tab is used to turn the valve on/ off manually. To remove the solenoid you only unscrew the black part with wires. Take care to watch for O-rings and possible solenoid plunger.
will this work for Hardie replacement?
Steve p on Mar 15, 2012
I do no know,you can check witn with a irrigation supplyer or spend 10.00$ on a kit, if it will not fit send it back.
Good luck
Does the Richdel R204 have a filter in line?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The valve itself has no filter in it. I suppose you can install one before it's input, but I guess the maker assumes you have clear water going in to it.
Hello,I have Richdel valves # 204 and would like to know if the repair kit for the irritrol for 205 valves would work for my 204 valves. They look the same.Thanks,Tom.?
Thomas D on Feb 26, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I also have Richdel 204 valves and have succesfully used the Irritrol 205 repair kit to fix these. I think it is the only option other than a complete valve replacement.
I have Richdel r201 valves. Will this work on them?
Donklrs on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: if the unit has 8 screws then it should work
I changed 3 of the internals of my Richdel R-204 with the Irritrol R205-kit s. They all work except when i shut them off, there is a 4 to 5 second delay before the sprinklers shut off. Any ideas?
Ken B on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I had a similar problem with one station not shutting off at all, it turns out that the threaded section on the solenoid was longer than my original ones, so I had to remove the o-ring from the solenoid so that I could screw in the solenoid farther down into the cap section. This allowed for the little spring actuator inside the solenoid to stop water flow. If you need to, you can use a little plumbers tape to replace the o-ring. This is what worked for me.
I have what appears to be the Irritrol 204 valve. Will the 205 kit work for this valve?
P K on Oct 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It worked for me on several of the 204 valves.
I have a Richdel 205 S valve ..and need a repair kit ..and I get this Irritrol R205 ..is this what I need ?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I believe the diaghram is the same. So, that should work.
How do I determine which Richdel Sprinkler Actuator I have?
I hope to buy a repair kit to repair a leak between the body and the cap of the unit. A tree root got in . Hope to repair before I have to tear into my wood deck. The actuators were installed under the deck and are real hard to get to. Would like to try a repair first.
Dwain M on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Some of the valve bodies have a model number on the top of the body, particularly those without flow control. Others have no model numbers on the valve body. I have no additional help for you.
How do I know which Richdel Valve I have without taking it out of the ground?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Can't tell without taking it out especially if sprinkler system over 10 years old. Be sure to shut down water supply first.
I have an old Richdel 713APR. Will this repair kit work on that ?
Imtiaz P on Dec 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I had the same valves and the repair kit worked for me. They are really the same valve.
can I use this diaphragm to replace the lawn genie r756 valve adaptor's ?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure on the #'s, but use the screw patterns to make determination. Basically if the patterns are the same, the diphram will work. J
Have this valve - small leak from top -I slightly open & close the bleeder screw to let water out & Get full pressure for sprinkler heads but 3 sec later I loose 50% pressure to heads . Stop &Restart -only 50% pressure .Betting it s the diaghram ?? THANK YOU !
Art G on Jun 7, 2018
I have Lawn Genie 204LG valves. Will the bonnet in the irritrol205 repair kit fit my valve bodies?
Jon C on Jun 7, 2015
205S Valve (no flow control) will not actuate unless solanoid is loosened to allow a small amount of leakage. Assumes it's a flow/pressure problem but do not know how to correct?
