    7 Valves in a regular valvebox.

    Sorry the picture is so bad, they are underwater so its hard to see. The manifold is cracked. Cheap Orbit Manifold fittings.

    Its going to need a complete rebuild. payup

    I left it open because the guy just wanted a estimate to get the system going, I can't even tell him until I can pressurize the main. (Many things wrong with this one).

    If it wasn't for the zone pipe crossing back through the box, you could easily fit 10 valves using those orbit threaded crosses.

    The bottom one was cracked (valvebox was resting on it) I noticed that the OD of the Orbit fittings was the same as 1", so I figured I'd nest a 1" cross in there and replace the cracked fitting without a complete rebuild, but when I cut the orbit fitting, it shattered up into the next fittings socket so now I would have to replumb 4 valves, at that point, I'm going to redo the mother completely.

    And put the whole manifold in a 10" round? :laugh:

    About 10 feet away are the rest of the zone valves, I think there is 8 more. They are all in a row, in 6" round boxes.

    Almost like two seperate installers did the system.

    Wow, that reflection in the water sure does look ugly.
