Extreme Durability

The PGA valve maintains a strong, worry-free seal between the body and bonnet, no matter the conditions.

Pressure-Resistant Seal

The PGA valve’s body-to-bonnet seal is built to overcome the intense water pressure.Faced with repeated pressure surges.

Easy Maintenance

Multi-drive screws make servicing the PGA valve simple and convenient to get things done faster.

Quiet Performance

With a robust electrical design, the PGA valve greatly reduces noise and delivers years of reliable performance.

Description

Reliability

  • 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.
  • Rugged PVC and glass-filled nylon construction for reliable operation.
  • Normally closed, forward flow design.
  • Filtered pilot flow to resist debris and clogging.
  • Slow closing to prevent water hammer and subsequent system damage.

Ease of Use

  • Globe and angle configuration for flexibility in design and installation.
  • 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.
  • Non-rising flow control handle adjusts water flow as needed.

Versatility

  • Accommodates optional, field-installed PRS-D pressure regulating dial to ensure optimum sprinkler performance.
  • Accepts latching solenoid for use with battery-operated controllers.
  • Optional purple flow control handle for non-potable water applications PGA-NP-HAN1 (1″ and 1½”); PGA-NP-HAN2 (2″).
