    Default Reccomend electric Valves into 1-1/4" PVC pipe

    I want to install some 110V electric valves in my well house project. All the pipe is 1 1/4" PVC, inside well house, 10 deg to 130 deg range of temp in the well house.
    standard pressures, <80 psi
    I would like one normally open valve, one normally closed valve... so I can apply the same control power to reverse them.....

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I think 110v valves will be expensive. You could use 24v solenoid valves with relays and a trasformer.

    If these valves are on the same line, a "3 way valve" will do the same thing.

    Thanks for the links and suggestions, much appreciated....
    I think I can make a 3 way valve work... agreed, it would simplify....
    doesn't appear Irritrol makes a 3way.... any other makers for this application in 3way?
    thx

    Irritrol is a "lawn sprinkler" company and as such ONLY makes simple valves which are all that are needed for 99.999999+% of installations. Do an Internet search for electric 3 way valves then sort out which of the "hundreds" of replies you want to investigate.

    I had already done that... Asco 3way valve was the best I could find, at about $1k price range...
    two of these make more economic sense...

    You could get a Jandy 1-1/2" 3-way valve made out of CPVC and an 24v electric actuator for $200.
    No NSF or anything but it will handle the pressure and flow.

    Thank you for the Jandy recommendation.... these seem ideal, even their check valves...
    your NSF comment made me curious....
    for a small well house, that serves only a max. of 4 residences, do control valves require NSF? I would think not?
    thanks..

    1-1/4'' is a weird size but if your still looking you can find some here http://www.electricsolenoidvalves.com/1-1-4-valves/
