    Does anyone out there know of any 110V AC motorized zone valves? I currently have two soleniod 110 V AC valves (which work well) but make a heck of a lot of noise when they open or close. I would like to go motorized (though have only run across 24 V AC valves). The ultimate would be 3/4" NPT.

    Any idea's?

    Ahh yes, that is an option. Might go that route if I can't find a direct 110-115V valve out there.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I don't know where your 120vac is coming from, but you could also get relays with 120vac coils and use them to switch 24vac to the valves. Probably cheaper if you have more than one valve.
