For decades Weathermatic has, by design, set industry quality and performance standards for remote control valves. From the first electric diaphragm valve, to the first reverse flow valve, Weathermatic has set the pace and defined state-of-the-art. Over the years many innovations and valve features we have introduced have been copied by others - which we take as a compliment.

From our 1" plastic economy valve to our 3" bronze contamination resistant model and over twenty models to choose from, Weathermatic has just the right valve for the job.

Weathermatic Valve Features

  • Reverse Flow Design - longer diaphragm life, valve fails closed if diaphragm is damaged

  • Manual Bleed Lever - internal to prevent valve box flooding

  • Dual Self-Cleaning Diaphragm Ports - flex during operation to minimize clogging and flush debris

  • Shock Cone - eliminates water hammer

  • Non Rising Flow Control Stem

  • Bolted Covers - for easy access and service

  • High Efficiency Solenoids

12000 Series

The 12000 series economy valves feature an engineering grade plastic body and cover (12024E & 12024EF), or an optional solvent weld PVC body (12000S & 12000SF). All models have 1/4" stainless steel cover bolts with brass body inserts and standard molded shock cone to reduce water hammer. Of course the 12000 series uses our unique "reverse flow" design and dual self cleaning diaphragm ports.

  • 4 Models to choose from*
    12024E-10 (1" FIP )
    12024EF-10 (1" FIP w/flow)
    12000S-10 (1" SLIPxSLIP)
    12000SF-10 (1" SLIPxSLIP w/flow)**

  • High Efficiency M24E Solenoid*
    (24V/60 Hz.)
    Inrush: 9.77 VA
    Holding: 6.2 VA

  • Working Pressure - 125 psi

21000 Series

The 21000 series "DW" valves are rated for dirty water applications as well as for potable water use. In addition to standard Weathermatic valve features, the 21000 has an oversized exhaust port to allow dirt and debris to pass through and prevent clogging, nylon reinforced diaphragm for longer life, and a brass non-rising flow stem.

The 21000 series body and cover are made of high strength glass-filled plastic material and are designed to operate in heavy duty commercial applications. Excellent low flow characteristics make this valve an ideal choice for micro-irrigation applications.

  • Models*
    21024E-10 (1" FIP w/flow)
    21024E-15 (1.5" FIP w/flow)
    21024E-20 (2" FIP w/flow)

  • High Efficiency M24E Solenoid

    Inrush: 9.77 VA
    Holding: 6.2 VAsi

  • International: Specify ISO

  • Working Pressure - 150 psi

  • Options:
    XPR Pressure Regulator - maintains constant outlet pressure
    Non-Potable Alert Solenoid - may be substituted for standard model

11000 Series

Our top-of-the-line plastic valve. The 11000 "CR" series is manufactured out of high strength glass-filled plastic and represents the state of the art in heavy duty commercial valves. Like all Weathermatic valves it has our unique dual ported/nylon reinforced diaphragm and reverse flow design which provide longer life and greater debris resistance. Excellent low flow characteristics make it an ideal choice for micro-irrigation.

The 11000 series is a true contamination resistant (CR) valve which features our S24B solenoid and Pro-Cap actuator in addition to internal oversized ports to enable it to be used in the most severe water conditions. Our confidence in the 11000 series is demonstrated with a 5 year limited warranty on the valve and diaphragm, and 7 year limited warranty on the S24B solenoid.

  • Models*
    11024FCR-10 (1" FIP w/flow)

7000 Series

The 7000 series "DW" valves are rated for dirty water applications as well as potable water use. The cover and body are made out of a high strength bronze alloy, and feature stainless steel cover bolts for easy access and service. The diaphragm is constructed of nylon reinforced rubber, and like all Weathermatic valves features our unique dual porting to minimize clogging due to debris.

As with our other valves, the 7000 series has an internal manual bleed lever, integral shock cone to minimize water hammer, and has excellent low flow characteristics for use with drip or micro-irrigation.

Our very best , the 8000 series comes with all of the features that have made it an industry standard - like reverse flow design for longer diaphragm life, dual ported/nylon reinforced diaphragm to minimize clogging, shock cone to reduce water hammer, and oversized porting combined with our S24B solenoid to give it a "CR" contamination resistant rating. The 8000 works equally well in low flow/micro-irrigation and high pressure applications.

With 6 models to choose from and backed by a 7 year limited warranty, the 8000 series is the valve professionals depend on.
