    Replacement anti-siphon valve on fill line

    Hi,

    I need to replace this anti-siphon valve on my pool fill line. This valve leaks out of every possible location when turned on:



    It looks like a manual sprinkler valve with the handle replaced for easier turning. Is this what I should do - buy a new sprinkler valve and replace the handle? Are there more suitable devices out there for this purpose? The main reason I'm asking is because when I search for a pool fill anti-siphon or backflow devices, I get few good results and it's difficult to tell what is the standard device to use.

    Thanks!

    It is not a sprinkler valve with a solenoid. You just need to use a manual anti-siphon valve. I would stick to the brass like this one: http://www.lowes.com/pd_234502-74985-51052_0__

    Or you could just use a backflow valve and a separate ball valve to turn the flow on and off.

    Could you please post a link to where I can see and buy one of these backflow valves, like on Amazon or Home Depot? I don't know what to search for, so it would be great if you can give me an example. Thanks.
