Home > Valves > Why Use A Dirty Water Valve?

This video is about using non-city water as your supply for your sprinkler system.

If your water is from a clean source, you can use any of the valves sold here at Sprinkler Warehouse with no worries. However, if your water supply is something like a lake, a pond, a river, a reservoir, or an affluent source, you need to use valves designed for dirty water sources. Dirty water can contain algae, dirt, sand, and silt. Or other debris that will enter the valve and cause it to stop opening or closing properly. When using water from a dirty water source, you need to use self-cleaning valves that are designed to flush and clean internal filters that keep dirt and debris from affecting its operation.
