Yes, pic was taken immediately after install while I was still covered in dirt.

They do say to remove the red tag to make sure when you close it will close all the way.

How hard are those remote valves to install? I've done basic home plumbing with PVC and even copper. I've also done some irrigation work.

I think the 'pain' would be getting the fittings the first time and the routing.

The flanges that are "bolted" together along with circular seals and a flat plastic blade makes up the blade valve. The hardest part for me was pulling pipes / flanges apart to get the seals and blade in gracefully. I reused the flanges since the are the same. PVC cement had ran into the valve at the factory making it more challenging.

I had the same issue with my rig...practically had to lie on the ground to get to the gray valve. I went with electric actuators. You can read the whole install, with some pics, here:
