    Anybody using these for drip systems? I ran across a couple on a job that must have been installed at least 15 years ago. One is not working, over restricting pressure to under 10 PSI. Not sure if I can still get them or maybe try the repair kit.

    The picture is larger than life size. That's 3/4" hose thread. The brass hose to pipe thread adapters installed with it are in fine shape.

    Normally I use a Wilkins BR4 on the main line of a manifold for a group of drip valves, or if my incoming pressure is low enough, I use a fixed plastic regulator.

    I don't know if my local suppliers carry this one, but I do like the fact it has a gauge built in, and it's adjustable.

    Who cares what the pressure is if you're using Netafim?

    But I'm not using Netafim.... though I fully defend your right to do so...
