    Well it's an orbit valve. I wouldn't replace the diaphram- I meant spinning out the valve

    You do realize they're made to be nesting, don't you? (made by Dura) :)

    like they really care about a gripe about a fitting that has more material in it than the competition's :rolleyes:

    What they should care about is the I.D., which is why I tried them once and quit quitting. Those fittings must go in real smooth for you, Boots. :laugh:

    Never had an issue with the ones I used, although I did save most of the 3/4-inch tees (and crosses, too) for nesting purposes.
