Anyone ever use sprinkler solenoid valves in their saltwater plumbing?


Recommended Posts

I'm almost more tempted to just use one of the rubber flapper valves so there is no chance of metal in the water or of mechanical failure.


Anyone use these? Pros cons? Where to get them?


I guess I could always leave one of the return pipes as is and not worry about it, but it would look so much nicer with both returns close to the bottom of the tank. Especially since the overflow will be pulling water from the surface and the closed loop will be pulling water from underneath the false bottom.
