Service call here for a leaking busted zone valve. Learned it froze over winter along with the copper feed thru the unheated garage (fixed by owner's son); not winterized in time. They waited til now, mid summer, to get the irrigation fixed. No room to twist off the zone valve. I think this former-home-owner built manifold was made by a ship-in-a-bottle hobbyist. The feed for the glued manifold and all the zone lines go thru holes bored in the sides of the deep valve box. I didn't catch it right away tho, and after digging all around the box I couldn't pull it out. Then I realized after seeing all zone lines and the feed moving with the box, I noticed the lines go thru the box walls, not "under". My pruning cutters snipped off the 3/4" polly lines and I disconnected the PVC union on the feed. I also "opened up" the valvebox side openings for more access. You can see the too-long corkscrew hose clamps and wacky approach angles of the old poly zone lines. Some of the connections did not have a clamp at all. Not visible in the pictures but there are bushes and their roots all around the valve box area. Nothin like gettin poked in the face and ears with branches while working. It ain't pretty, but there's the new manifold and zonevalves connected up to the zone lines.
