[APD] Sprinkler System auto-shut off valve?

Has anyone used an automatic sprinkler system shut off valve? They have different types at Lowe's/Home Depot that all are around $10-$15 and run off of 24V. Are these pretty good for using inside a house for an auto-top off system? (no leaking, etc)

I was looking at these over some other, smaller solenoids mainly because the are running on 24 V instead of 120V - something I'm not super-comfortable with going through a little-bitty float switch with small lead wires inside my sump. (Electrocution isn't much fun)

Outside of this suggestion, what other solenoids have people used? Have people used replacement parts for ice markers or dishwasher inflow valves or just used the gas/liquid solenoids?
