EFB-CP Series

Highly durable brass irrigation valves – globe configuration

Electric remote control valves don't come any better than EFB-CP Series red brass valves. Need a contamination-proof, self-flushing screen that cleans itself and resists debris build-up in dirty water? The EFB-CP's the one!

Ideal for non-potable water valve applications, the EFB-CP is designed to handle chlorine and other harsh chemicals found in reclaimed water systems.

EFB-CP Series valves offer long life and superior performance in high pressure applications.


  • Reliable performance even in dirty water applications. Self-flushing filter resists debris build-up.
  • Rugged red brass construction for longer life
  • Durable, fabric-reinforced diaphragm composed of EPDM, a rubber material which is chlorine- and chemical resistant.
  • Normally closed, reverse flow design ensures valve will fail in the closed position if a tear or rip in the diaphragm occurs. Prevents flooding, water waste, and landscape damage.
  • Slow closing to prevent water hammer and subsequent system damage.
  • One-piece solenoid design with captured plunger and spring for easy servicing. Prevents loss of parts during field service.
  • Flow control handle adjusts water flow as needed.
  • Manual internal bleed operates the valve without allowing water into the valve box. Allows pressure regulator adjustment without turning on the controller.
  • Manual external bleed permits flushing debris from the system. Recommended for system start-up and other repairs.
  • Contamination-proof, self-flushing filter screen resists debris build-up. Water flow continuously flushes the screen, dislodging particles and debris before they can accumulate and clog the filter.
  • Globe configuration.
  • Reclaimed water compatible: all models now feature EPDM diaphragms and chlorine-resistant parts as standard equipment.
  • Purple handle cover included to designate non-potable water.
  • Three-year trade warranty.


  • Accommodates optional field-installed PRS-D pressure regulating module to ensure optimum sprinkler performance. Regulates up to 100 psi (6.9 bar)
  • Accepts latching solenoid for use with Rain Bird battery-operated controllers up to 150 psi (10,35 bar).
  • Compatible with ESP-LXD decoders.


Operating Range

  • Pressure: 15 to 200 psi (1,04 to 13,80 bar)

*BSP threads available; specify when ordering


  1. Rain Bird recommends flow rates in the supply line not to exceed 7.5 ft/sec (2.29 m/s) in order to reduce the effects of water hammer
  2. For flows below 5 gpm (1.14 m³/h; 19.21 l/m), Rain Bird recommends use of upstream filtration to prevent debris from collecting below the diaphragm
  3. For flows below 10 gpm (2.27 m³/h; 37.8 l/m) Rain Bird recommends the flow control stem be turned down two full turns from the fully open position.
