Valves

Drip irrigation valves are designed to be used with a timer to automate an irrigation system. The timer sends a signal to the valve telling it to open or close.

At DripWorks, we offer an assortment of the best drip system valves in the business. We carry valves powered by battery DC power as well as models designed for use with household AC current. In addition, we offer automatic distribution valves powered by water flow, which makes them ideal for applications where electricity isn’t readily available. Choose a valve compatible with your timer and the pressure and flow rate of your irrigation system.

We also carry a complete lineup of direct-burial wire and wire connectors for connecting timers to valves. Our direct-burial wire may be used with or without conduits.

All in-line valves are designed for below ground installation inside a valve box. They have female pipe threads on the inlet and the outlet.

See our manifold swivel fittings for a fast, flexible and easy way to assemble valves.

Important Notes:

  • Do not use pipe dope around any automated valve (AC or DC).
  • Always install a filter in your system before your valves.
  • Debris in the valve will void any warranty.
  • Always install valves in the horizontal position.
  • Failure to do so may cause damage to the valve.
  • The solenoid should be on the downstream side of the valve. An arrow on the side of each valve indicates the direction of the flow of water.
  • Local building codes may require the inclusion of a backflow prevention device when using valves other than anti-siphon valves. Check with your local building inspector or municipality for details.
