Golf courses in lightning-prone regions, those that use reclaimed water, and those that need water pressure regulation now have a new valve solution. Rain Bird Golf’s new GSV Series plastic and brass valves include numerous advanced features designed to enhance the durability even under the most challenging conditions.

“Valves are the heart of any irrigation system,” said Altan Tolan, product manager for Rain Bird Golf. “On a golf course, a valve failure can have significant repercussions and require additional money and labor to repair. That’s why we built our new GSV Series Valves with a collection of upgrades that ensure optimum reliability, performance and peace of mind.”

Rain Bird’s new GSV Series Valves feature unmatched protection to withstand up to 25kV of the surge. A pre-installed PRS-DIAL regulates and maintains constant outlet pressure between 15 and 100 psi while reducing the effects of the water hammer. A waterproof dial cartridge eliminates fogging and binding.

The GSV Series includes three plastic models with NPT or BSP thread options and one red brass model with BSP threads only. All GSV models feature a chlorine-resistant diaphragm that protects the valves against harsh chemicals and reclaimed water.

The Scrubber mechanism (on plastic models) encapsulates a stainless steel screen to dislodge grit and plant material protecting the valve from debris. Built-in filtration on the GBS25 solenoid and the adapter offers two additional levels of debris protection. An extra purple flow-control handle (handle cover for brass model) is included for use with non-potable water.

“Irrigation system valves aren’t often thought of as particularly ‘innovative’,” Tolan said. “With the new GSV Series, we’re changing that by incorporating unique features that will enhance irrigation system performance and reliability, year after year.”
