I'm looking for a low cost motorized water valve. I've done a number of searches and have found nothing compelling. Has anyone here used a motorized water valve with Arduino? What would you recommend?
A fail-open solenoid might also work but I'd like to try my hand at a motorized valve.
The valves I found start at US$50. I'm looking for something cheaper. The purpose is tinkering and I'd like to make an "if water detected - then close valve" sketch. Ir's simple, just more expensive than I expected.
