    Default Irritrol 2700 anti-siphon cover issue

    I installed 4 new Irritrol 2700 valves at my home out here in Phoenix. One day I walked out and noticed that the anti-siphon cover have come off. I tightened all the cover assemblies, but one of them just will not stay on. When ever I turn on that zone, the sprinklers run for a second, and then the cover pops off again.

    Any idea why this is happening? I would think that the pressure would not be so great as to make the cover burst off, but apparently that is what's happening.

    Thanks!

    I have never seen these valves, here we use a single double check valve for the entire system. In a quick reading of the description of these valves, they should work. The will handle up to 150 psi which is almost certainly far more than your city water supply delivers. I would suggest you contact the dealer where you purchased these and see if they are still warrantied or if there is a repair that can be done to them.

    You might post a photo or two of the malfunction. It happens there are two variations of the 2700 series valves. It also happens that the vacuum breaker cover has a central "dust cover" section that can come loose without causing leaks.

    Your problem sounds like something new.

    Is this post why their tech support line has been down all last week?
