Me and my friend tried to use a sprinkler valve. We got the whole gun put toghether and then tried to pump it up but the diaphram in the sprinkler valve wouldnt hold. We already washed it out and everything. We even glued up the holes where the solnoid was supposed to go. So instead we jsut bought a ball valve. Does any one know what went wrong cause we tried everything. And if any of u know a place that shows u how to make a supah type valve i would be greatful if u would send it to me.

Thank you
Luke

Your post leaves out a lot of information one could use to help solve your problem. That said, I'll give it a try. I have modified 6 rainbirds, 2 lawn genies and a couple of rainbird 1.5" PEBs and have had no problems. Modded valves increase performance!
First of all, go to this site:

TimB did a great job with this how-to. If you follow it, you can't go wrong.
Secondly, obvious things:
1. Is the spring installed correctly?
2. If the diaphragm was removed, is it damaged or installed incorrectly?
3. The diaphragm has an equalizing port, is it damaged, plugged, or missing?
4. Do you hear any air escaping as you pump it? Leaks have to be addressed first.

Hope this helps.
