Rainbird PGA Series Solenoid Valve



  • Water-tight seal between the body and bonnet for maximum confidence, even in the most extreme conditions.
  • Robust construction and electrical design for quiet performance you can count on.
  • Rugged PVC and glass-filled nylon construction for reliable operation.
  • Normally closed, forward flow design.
  • Filtered pilot flow to resist debris and clogging.
  • Slow closing to prevent water hammer and subsequent system damage.
  • Three-year trade warranty.

Ease of Use

  • Multi-drive screws (Phillips, flathead, hexagonal) for easy maintenance.*
  • Globe and angle configuration for flexibility in design and installation.
  • Manual internal bleed operates the valve without allowing water into the valve box. This allows the pressure regulator to be adjusted without turning the valve on at the controller.
  • One-piece solenoid design with captured plunger and spring for easy servicing. Prevents loss of parts during field service.
  • Non-rising flow control handle adjusts water flow as needed.

*Currently available on 2” PGA models only.


  • Accommodates optional, field-installed PRS-D pressure regulating dial to ensure optimum sprinkler performance.
  • Accepts latching solenoid for use with Rain Bird battery-operated controllers.
  • Optional purple flow control handle for non-potable water applications PGA-NP-HAN1 (1 inches and 1½ inches); PGA-NP-HAN2 (2 inches).
