valve replacement

I have a system what was installed in 1993, and a couple of the valves are giving me headaches, so Im probably going to replace them this coming week. The old systme used PGA100 Rainbird valves, w/ flow control.



Looking at the big box supply stores, all they seem to offer is the Rainbird CP-100.

I could drive further and look around and probably pickup PGA-100's, but is it really worth it? Would you replace w/ what you already have, replace w/ a different rainbird, or just pickup the cheapo CP-100s and throw em in, cuz theyre easy to find...

Oh, yeah, I live in Texas, and we have a lot of water restrictions during the summer....should that calculate into my choice of valves, and if so, what do y'all recommend?

TheRain Bird PGA valve is a solid valve- keep them.. Also you can just gut swap them

pga100

Mitchgo is right. It's better to get the same valves and replace the guts and top.
