If you live near a big city, check in the Yellow Pages under "Valves".
We have one by NuPro (model B-4MG2) that cost $35 and is superb.  We
have another from The ARO Corporation, phone (419) 636-4242, called
the NO1 for about $10, but it's obsolete now and is a little harder to
get adjusted just right, especially in a "manual" system.  Jamil
Zainasheff reports great success with a Parker "N400B-11AC".

Try a manual system first.  Once it's adjusted correctly, it is
probably less trouble than a fully automated system.  You can always
retrofit a controller and solenoid.

Try Pet Warehouse (800) 443-1160.  They offer Dupla, Aqualine-Bushke
and Sandpoint. Also ask for their free catalog.
