Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase Ive installed apprx. 35 of these on my irrigation system with no issues. I have 1/2” threaded adapters that they screw on to off schedule 40 PVC 1/2” risers. If you bottom these out when screwing down and over tighten they will break ( only tighten until you feel they are snug ) Turn on your watering system to make sure they are not leaking ( do this before you take the caps off.., uff duh ). When taking the caps off( onlly take off as many caps off as you have lines for ) grasp the pvc riser and manifold in one hand to steady it while you pull the cap off with a pair of pliers. If done correctly you wont break these. Ive been using these now for a few months in Arizona with zero issues. I also use the little 1/4” Rainbird clamps to make the manifold port/tube connection more secure. Optional depending on your pressure hitting the manifold. Probably overkill but they arent to pricey. The only time a manifold broke was when I tightened it down way too tight. The main theme is DONT OVERTIGHTEN the manifolds when screwing them down. So far I think this is a 5 star product. Sorry the other reviewers seem to be having issues with these. IMO the manifolds that really suck are the Orbit 4 port adjusfable flow. I had 6 out of 10 develop hairline cracks at the connection coupling a couple of days after installing. First day they ran fine, next day hairline crack with water streaming out under pressure.

One of the connectors broke off the first time I tried to disconnect a tubing from it. Had to replace the entire manifold (with a better quality non-Rainbird part this time).

Most irrigation manifolds are very flimsy and break easily (this one is no exception). Mine were continually broken by my lawn service guy who would step on them and not realize they were broken. I now use these Rain-Bird manifolds, however, because the connectors are on the sides of the manifold, rather than through the top. I cover them with about 1" of landscape rock and make sure that the tube connectors are supported by rocks underneath the manifold. This will support the weight of a typical landscape employee and prevent the tubes connectors from breaking off. To set expectations, I find these manifolds do last about 1-2 years regardless if not stepped on, about the same as the other brands that go out the top.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from these are junk and break easily Love most rain burd products. This one is junk. If the outlets dont break off and stab youre a lucky one. Once you get one installed youll be even luckier if it lasts longer than a week before it shoots the top right off. So much for drip lines when it creates a geyser shooting all over your yard after it pops its top
