I have seen another way but can't remember the link at the moment. When the ball valve is closed the spring is bent (curved.) You have some type of latch holding the ball valve lever in that position. Once you remove/open this latch the spring straightens itself out, opening the ball valve.

If you get a strong enough solenoid..maybe a 5lb or 10lb solenoid, you could get it to QUICKLY open the ball vavle.. it would be an interesting design...hmm, I might try one..
