New lower-cost valve boxes come in a full range of colors and configurations

TUCSON, AZ (May 16, 2013)— In today’s price-sensitive marketplace, it can be challenging to provide top-quality irrigation systems that also fit within tight budgets. As a result, irrigation professionals often have to choose system components like valve boxes based upon tight project budgets. Now, Rain Bird has launched a line of durable, versatile valve boxes that fit into almost any budget without sacrificing quality—PVB Professional Series Valve Boxes.

“Irrigation contractors, specifiers and landscape architects work within an extremely competitive industry,” said Tom Wilson of Rain Bird accessories. “Because every penny counts, they are sometimes forced to choose lower quality valve boxes to keep costs down and win more project bids. Our new PVB Professional series gives irrigation professionals options that can help them win bids without having to cut corners.”

Featuring light but durable construction, the PVB Professional Series Valve Boxes and lids come in a wide variety of sizes and configurations to meet any irrigation site’s needs. Round, mini, standard and jumbo options are available in green and black, as well as tan for more arid landscapes and purple for reclaimed water applications. Standard and jumbo valve box extensions are also available.

Lids carry a skid-resistant texture to help prevent slipping and falling as well as body ridges to provide additional side wall support. Purchases of PVB series valve boxes also qualify for Rain Bird® Rewards points, helping irrigation professionals continue to earn valuable points that they can redeem for trips, marketing tools, irrigation training and merchandise.

“Every job—no matter how large or small—deserves a dependable, durable, well-designed valve box that can withstand often harsh outdoor conditions,” Wilson said. “Now, with our PVB series, irrigation professionals have the quality, selection, versatility and pricing they need from a company they’ve come to trust.”
