Rain Bird 150-PGA 1.5 in. FPT Globe/Angle Valve with Flow Control
1½" Rain Bird 150-PGA Valve
With Flow Control
1½" Female Threaded Inlet/ Outlet
Built for high-end residential and light commercial applications, Rain Bird PGA series valves are the toughest, most reliable valves in their class. These long-lasting, easy-to-service valves are proven to perform at the highest level, even under harsh temperatures and intense pressure. For maximum peace of mind, PGA series valves also offer a best-in-class, three-year trade warranty. Because you care about your reputation and so do we.
Features & Benefits
Water-tight seal between the body and bonnet for maximum confidence, even in the most extreme conditions
Robust construction and electrical design for quiet performance you can count on
Filtered pilot flow to resist debris and clogging
Slow closing to prevent water hammer and subsequent system damage
Normally closed, forward flow design accepts latching solenoid for use with Rain Bird battery-operated controllers
Multi-drive screws (Phillips, flathead, hexagonal) for easy maintenance*
Manual internal bleed operates the valve without allowing water into the valve box. This allows the pressure regulator to be adjusted without turning the valve on at the controller
One-piece solenoid design with captured plunger and spring for easy servicing. Prevents loss of parts during field service

The PGA valve maintains a strong, worry-free seal between the body and bonnet, no matter the conditions. PGA valves were exposed to extreme temperature swings and intense pressures. The result: zero leaks.
If high water pressure strikes, you need to be prepared for the worst-case scenario. For the Burst Test, we ramped up the pressure as high as it could go. We did the same for the valves of a leading competitor. The results were telling. While the competition exhibited body-to-bonnet leaks under pressures as low as 100 psi (6.9 bar), the PGA valve held strong, even at 440 psi (30 bar).
The PGA valve's body-to-bonnet seal is built to overcome the intense water pressure typical of many commercial sites. Faced repeated pressure surges well into the triple digits, our valves outlasted the nearest competitor more then 2½ time to 1.
