What Is a Valve Solenoid?

A solenoid is the generic term for a coil of wire used as an electromagnet. In an irrigation valve, a solenoid creates a magnetic field from an electric current to create linear motion. When the solenoid is activated, it allows air inside the valve to escape. This creates pressure and causes the diaphragm to raise up and down, depending on the direction the solenoid is activated. Without a sprinkler solenoid, a valve can't function properly.

Replacing a Defective Solenoid

Because a solenoid is so important to a valve, it is vital that you know how to fix it if anything goes wrong. A sprinkler valve solenoid replacement is an easy and inexpensive fix and can get your system up and running in no time at all. If you need to replace a defective solenoid on your valve here are some easy steps you can follow:

  • Shut off Water Supply - This is so important. If you do not shut off your water, you may find yourself with water spraying everywhere. Always take the safe route by shutting off your water first.
  • Open Valve Box and Remove Sprinkler Solenoid - Cut off old connection wires, as there may be some corrosion inside of them. Once your old wires have been clipped you can remove your solenoid by turning it counter-clockwise and pulling it off.
  • Place New Solenoid Into Position - This can be done by inserting your new valve solenoid where your old solenoid was positioned. Once you get it in the right spot you can turn it clockwise to safely attach it into place.
  • Hook Up Wires - Once you have your solenoid safely attached into place you can easily hook up your new wires to your existing wires in no time at all. Once you get your wires attached where they need to go your new solenoid will be ready to perform right away.
