  • Has anyone noticed that the valve leaks very slowly even when it is closed? I set up a few tubes with the solenoid in the middle to test for leaks, with the water supply a few feet above the solenoid so gravity provides it with enough pressure, and noticed that over a period of a few hours I would get a few drops of water coming through the solenoid valve despite it being in the closed position. A few drops doesn't matter for my purposes, but it's worth noting if this thing isn't water tight when closed.

No public wish lists :(
