- Normally closed, forward flow design.
- Slow closing to prevent water hammer and subsequent system damage.
- Robust solenoid provides dependable performance even during constant operation.
- Flow control handle adjusts water flows as needed and incorporates a brass thread insert for longer life.
- Manual internal bleed operates the valve without allowing water into the valve box. Allows pressure regulator adjustment without turning the valve on at the controller.
- Manual external bleed permits flushing debris from the system. Recommended for system start up and repairs.
- Highly efficient operation with extremely low pressure loss.
- Patented nylon scrubber scrapes a stainless steel screen to clean and break down grit and plant material. Prevents debris build-up and clogging.

- Rain Bird recommends flow rates in the supply line not to exceed 7.5 ft/sec (2.29 m/s) in order to reduce the effects of water hammer.
- For flows below 5 gpm (1.14 m³/h; 19.2 l/m), Rain Bird recommends use of upstream filtration to prevent debris from collection below the diaphragm.
- For flows below 10 gpm (2.27 m³/h; 37.8 l/m), Rain Bird recommends the flow control stem be turned down two full turns from the fully open position.
