Use as a replacement part for all DIG inline valves.
Inline valves installed below grade or above the ground are suitable for use with any water quality. Water from a lake, well, open ditch and other dirty water source may contain particles, rocks, sand and other debris that can get into the valve and cause it to malfunction. In order to protect the valve, a filter with 80 to 120 mesh is suggested. If you have a problem with your valve, you may need to turn the water supply off and disassemble the valve to find the problem. Most of the time, the glitch will be around the diaphragm with problems such as a rock piercing the diaphragm or the diaphragm becoming plugged. If you find the problem, you can use one of our 3/4" through 2” diaphragms as a replacement.
Steps to replace a diaphragm on a 3/4", 1”, 1-1/2” or 2” inline valves:
1. Shut off the water supply to the valve
2. Turn on the valve via the manual lever or via the solenoid - first make sure that the valve is not under pressure and then drain the valve.
3. Unscrew the six screws from the top of the valve bonnet (cover).
4. Lift and remove the cover/bonnet and make sure not to lose the spring assembly.
5. Remove the diaphragm and check if it is damaged or only dirty. If dirty, clean the diaphragm and make sure that the orifice is clean. If the diaphragm is damaged, replace it and make sure to install the diaphragm in the same direction as the one you removed.
6. Replace the cover/bonnet and screw back the six screws you removed, alternating sides when you tighten the screws
7. After replacing and completing the repair or replacement, turn the water on again and test the valve under pressure to make sure no leak occurs, using the manual leaver
