I apologize if it is already here, I only went 3 pages before starting this thread.

Post some pics of your irrigation work! I'll start, I love building manifolds and showing them off!

These pics are from a job that we have been on and off since June, so far 9, 4 plexes and 2 small apartments.

General gave the sleeving duties to the concrete contractor, so this is what I had to work with.

The Orbit box in the last one was used because the GC had them left over from a previous project and wanted to save money wherever he could;)

In the first picture- From a repair standpoint- that manifold would be a nightmare of a repair if something was to go wrong.

For our manifolds- we use manufactured manifold tee's that interlock and are spaced far enough that if there was a issue with the valve- you could just spin the valve out and replace it.

I would suggest to leave enough space between your fittings for at least one future repair.

i agree with that comment.

for service, when done right, they can be quite nice if it is a valve issue. however, it can be a total pain to fix any leaks in the pipes. we dont manifold at all, and never will. too much extra pipe.


at least for medium to larger areas. for very small lawns and such, it is not that bad.


no one here does this, i have only seen a few, and they were not reputable installers

If you pull the bonnet it looks to me like the valve will spin off.
