I have ten stainless solenoid valves for sale. I'm pretty positive they're the same as these as this is where I bought them: http://www.ebay.com/itm/290601557472

4 - Have never been used
6 - Various state of used condition- some only used for water, others for wort

Of the used ones, a couple have small rust spots on the black solenoid cover; others look no different than the new. If I were to use them again, I'd probably remove the covers (just one nut), prime and paint them a more interesting color.

Also on the used ones, I added some water tight power connectors and a ground wire. I can provide the mating cable that I used or you can just clip the connector and put on your own.

Note to potential buyers:
If you're looking for this to be your first jump into automation, you should know that solenoid valves are not the most ideal for wort; you probably want motorized ball valves. One thing solenoid valves are good for is shutting off quickly so for water supply lines and such they work well. Solenoid valves are also directional so you'll see a little arrow on the valve body, this is the direction the liquid should flow. (These are tidbits I learned as part of the expense of being an early adopter)


I'll be disassembling the used ones just to make sure they're still clean and such. If I run across something unexpected, the quantity of 10 could drop.

Anyhow, let's say $25 each for the new ones and $20 for the used.

Shipping costs are going to depend on where you're at and what size USPS box I can get them in. A single valve weighs about 22oz so flat rate boxes are probably best.

If you buy in quantity, I'm sure we can work a deal over PM.

I believe they're some variant of a "Weatherpack" connector. At the time some people questioned the suitability of the connectors for AC but I've had zero issues or concerns. The wire preattached to the valve is only about 20 or 22 gauge so I imagine there's not much current draw from the solenoid.

The connectors are at least splash proof, I don't think I would recommend submerging them in liquid though.

Yes. All but possibly two are available as I completely forgot about cank's request. (Cank- I just sent you a PM). I also just received a PM on them so first come, first serve.

As far as shipping goes, I've ordered up some "Priority Mail 2-Day™ Regional Rate Box A" boxes from the Post Office so if you want to estimate shipping costs, plan on 2 lbs per valve and shipping from zip code 48442.

Thanks

Joe

In line for the five:
