Not sure what you are asking.
What style solenoid do you now have?
There are (2) basic types of solenoids. a-Electrically maintained and b- mechanically maintained.
The electrically maintained type require a small amount of power to keep them operating. While the mechanically maintained only require a momentary pulse to energize and a pulse to deenergize. They are held in each position by a latching device.
The wiring requires a momentary switch like a SPDT center off momentary.
