    I have purchased a solenoid valve from RC Subs to replace a pinch valve arrangement in an EDEN WTC.
    Any thoughts on whether this will be an improvement?

    Could well be. Small 12v solenoid valves have not been easy to obtain. (Some more details of yours would be appreciated.)
    The only thing going for pinch valves is that they are simple and cheap and tend to leak a little which is a failsafe as an "undocumented feature!"

    I've been using these for a while and they have proved very succesful.
