No that is not the case I do know

Why did you replace the valves instead of just rebuilding them? I'm not a fan of the PGV but it can still be had and rebuilding is much easier than replacing and eliminates the possibility of installing a valve backwards.

Doesn't matter if the valves are all flowing out the same way or are alternated, you put them in however it makes most sense for the zone you're going to run with it.

Personally, I've never had a problem with the Hunter PGV w/o flow control.

Except once, the home owner was a mason contractor and he wanted to make his own stone valve box (cement rectangular chimney flue collar as the box, with a stone lid). He knocked off a solenoid, screwing up the threads. He cross threaded it back on severely and then called to complain.

When I showed him that the solenoid was cross threaded so bad it was at an angle, he fessed up. Not under warranty.

Here's a manifold rebuild from last year using PGV.
