    Does any manufacturer make a 12v DC operated sprinkler (water)control valve that is 1 1/4" NFPT ported on both ends? My local big box stores certainly don't have them and before I go running around searching I thought I would ask. Thanks, David

    You could easily use a 1½" valve an bush down to the 1 1/4". The bigger problem is why do you need to operate on 12 VDC?? Seems almost all irrigation valves are 24 VAC.

    What is the water pressure at this valve? There might be a standard valve that will work.
