An alternative to solenoid operated valves is motorised valves as used on heating systems, usually mains voltage, they are usually spring loaded shut and open when supplied with mains power :

(also, yea, I realized after the fact that ball valves are either on or off, been a while since I had a hydraulics class)

No, a ball valve can be used to throttle flow anywhere from full off to full on and anywhere in between, just by the position of the handle/ball. A ball valve's main claim to fame is that it can be made to allow full flow restricted by only the piping size and line pressure. That is a 1/4" ball valve has a full 1/4" hole in the ball and therefore allows full potential flow in 1/4" piping systems. They tend to be the more expensive style of valve per size because of the precision machining required to make the ball and seat. Not sure if plastic ball values are common and if they carry a price premium also.

Oh? :/ Well cool...

I know just enough to have the DESIRE to make trouble/a mess, but not enough to actually do it smiley-razz

That might actually be exactly what I need, pretty cheap, does what I need, etc


Thanks everyone for your help, I'll continue to poke around, but once I see something I like, it's usually the one I get (I'm an impulse shopper, except I wait a while before buying, but STILL buy the same thing smiley-razz)

I'm trying to find a electrically actuated water valve for a project.. something I THINK like this here

http://www.amazon.com/Parker-Valve-4Z-B6LJ2-SSP-Stainless-Compression/dp/B001C13DJ6

But preferably cheaper, that's obviously for an industrial application

My question is: Does anyone know of any search terms I could try to find more residential oriented ones?
