    Which pressure regulator do all of the gurus recommend for drip systems? Preferably in the 1/2" size. For use with city water.
    Brand and model if available.

    I think I keep one 1/2-inch Wilkins BR-4 in stock. Same internals as the 3/4-inch

    RB 3/4 is all we use for drip. Buy the drip kit and the compression fitting for 1/2 inch poly comes with.

    Ditto on that. You can get several pressure ranges as well to fit your specific needs.

    I have to agree, though I've only used the 3/4 and up.

    If you are manifolding you can use one for multiple valves (as long as your pressure requirements are the same.)
