    I am trying to find an electronic valve that is very small. I am
    getting together the parts for a project that will connect to a
    kitchen sink faucet I am trying to find an electronic valve that will
    be small enough to control waterflow through a kitchen sink but is not
    so huge as to make the attachment, when completed, a monster in size.
    I would really appreciate if anyone can point me in the direction of
    some valves like this, or at least to some companies or websites that
    have a selection of electronic valves so that I can do some further
    research.
    Appreciate the help, thanks.

  2. Some toilets at work have the auto flush gizmo on them. They run off
    a few AA cells. Seems like a good place to start looking. And there
    are other solenoid operated valves used for control of such stuff as
    medical fluids.

  3. Tell us what you are trying to do, there may be better ways. Does it
    need to be quickly/conveniently attached or detached, or can it be
    permanently connected under the sink? Is this a one off? Since you
    said the faucet, I'll assume for now that means it must be visible. You
    still might be able to use a dishwasher water control valve and cover
    it.

    Even domestic washing machines and dish-washers use them
    to admit the water to the drum/whatever. Try your local repair centre.
     
  5. getting together the parts for a project that will connect to a
    Ummm.... (cautiously looking for trick question, and not finding
    one)... have you considered repurposing a regular
    infra-red-motion-sensing automatic faucet as used in many fine
    airports, movie sets, restaurants, federal prisons and other places of
    public entertainment? That has the item you want (it's called a
    solenoid valve) already built into a faucet compatible with standard
    household fittings. Look at Delta's range of products.
