Can't find 11/4 inline electric valves inorder to get job of updating system with wifi controller .

1 1/4 inline electric valveHi guys ,
I just got back into irrigation due to financial need O had a landscape buis . For nearly 20 years. It's been about 15 years since I shut down so a lot haschanged. I HAVE been coming up with specific project type ides to advertise recently my Idea was to advertise updating systems to wifi and Bluetooth enabled controllers but some customers need to update to electric valves first and this job im trying g to estimate right now I can not find 1 1/4 valves anywhere its really weird starting to think my only option is going to be to use reducer to go from 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 install 1 1/2 valve and back to 1 1/4 after the valve. Anybody have any secret suppliers or ideas or sugestions?

I noticed myself that the 1 1/4" seem to have disappeared. I might have a case of them in my stock. I'll never use them. I'm very close to retiring. I'm too tired at the moment to go look. Will do tomorrow. I only commented so I wont forget. Cross your fingers.

It isn't important

Zone valves were always meant to be sized according to the flow of water traveling through them. That comes first. A common one-inch zone valve can pass enough water to fit into 1-1/2 inch plumbing.

Well I lied. I only found a half of a case of 1 1/2" Hunter PGV's.

You should try what Boots suggested.

Here you go if you want to spend the money. I knew I had a customer with Superior 1 1/4" brass valves. Link
