Solenoid Valve

Built for high-end residential and light commercial applications, Rain Bird® PGA series valves are the toughest, most reliable valves in their class. These long-lasting, easy-to-service valves are proven to perform at the highest level, even under harsh temperatures and intense pressure. For maximum peace of mind, PGA series valves also offer a best-in-class, three-year trade warranty. Because you care about your reputation—and so do we.


  • Water-tight seal between the body and bonnet for maximum confidence, even in the most extreme conditions.
  • Robust 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 dialto ensure optimum sprinkler performance.
  • Accepts latching solenoid for use with Rain Bird battery-operated controllers.
  • Optional purple flow control handlefor non-potable water applications PGA-NP-HAN1 (1" and 1 1/2"); PGA-NP-HAN2 (2").
  • For flows below 10 GPM (2 m3/h; 63 l/s) Rain Bird recommends the flow control stem be turned down two full turns from the fully open position.
  • For flows below 5 GPM (1 m3/h; 32 l/s), Rain Bird recommends use of upstream filtration to prevent debris from collecting below the diaphragm
  • Rain Bird recommends flow rates in the supply line not to exceed 7.5 feet/second (2,3 m/s) in order to reduce the effects of water hammer
