I totally understand. I live in a area where 80% of valves installed are anti-syphon. I see that valve all the time.

Just go to a sprinkler supply house such as Ewing or Hydroscape. That valve is still available. So are replacement parts.
Many parts of the country never saw that Hydro-Rain antisyphon valve, and wouldn't know from parts. I only saw a few of the Champion/Richdel combinations that Richdel sold, way back when. (I would appreciate posters that input their location, so that specific advice can be given)

the L2010 is for converting Richdel's own design for a plastic valve, and that is a different animal entirely.

Since the entire operating portion of a 311A can be unthreaded from the body, it can be replaced with another "converter" assembly. The easiest one to lay hands on can be the Lawn Genie L1010, which is really an industry-standard Richdel design.

The reason for this interchangeability, is that the 311A is a plastic copy of the old industry standard brass valve. Everybody made converters for them
===================================

Good morning wet_boots, I looked into the Lawn Genie L1010 valve adapter and it appears that it is for brass valves and the L2010 is for plastic valves. Is this correct?

Many thanks, Ray

Well. I found this one:

I don't know about the website or seller.

Replacement Irritol 311A



But Rainbird makes a similar looking one. I don't know about the piping in between the flow in/out though.

Rain Bird 100-ASVF



See what the experts have to say first........

Many thanks for the link Seansy59..................Ray

Irritrol model 311A-1, 1" control valve

I am looking for replacement parts for this valve but am having problems locating them. Is there a replacement model?

Thanks, Ray
