I know it's off topic a bit but this is my go to group for real answers. Ha ve any of you guys messed with inline irrigation valves? I never have and h ave a new Rainbird valve that needs 24vac so I simply connected it to a 24v ac (20va) control transformer I had and the solenoid chatters like crazy, s o quickly disconnected it. (Usually when I hear chatter it means a need for DC but these things run on AC).
Does the chatter go away with water pressure? I just bench tested it dry. T HANKS
