I will purchase more of these
this park system was designed and installed several years ago. since then, several changes have been added, some for the better, and some no quite as planned. This valve makes it economically feasible to add a zone to water a new tree, for example, or a flowerbed, or sheltered area created by a building

Perfect fit!
Great product and is perfect for areas where a power source is an issue. Thanks

I own several rental properties, all are sprinkled. Occasionally, I add a tree or group of trees, and this is the cat's meow for that purpose!

Works as advertised
It is a little bulky but I turned it on it side to get passed a height issue I had.

Good controller-valve combo that leaves the option for rain sensor. 10/10, will purchase again
O T on Apr 13, 2017
I have tried 2 other brands before this and we have found this valve to be by far the best. My original purchase of about a year ago was of 12 of these and all still work great today.

what is the battery life expectancy?
shane m on Mar 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I was told over 1 year ... it's been 6 months and still working...
what water pressure is this valve good for. can it handle low pressure?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what "low" is, but I am using three of these at the end of a 1" garden hose that is connected to a hydrant that has about 40 psi at zero flow. I run one valve at a time and the sprinklers on it are nozzled at about 10 gpm. Hope this helps.
what is the difference between dig 710A-100 and the 400A-100?
