Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LuAustinTx Rain Bird valve is better than Orbit valve
There have been 4 zones using Rain Bird valves which were installed in my front more than year 20 years ago, 9 zones using Orbit valves which were installed in my back yard 7 years ago. Last year, I was out of town for 2 weeks. When back home, one of sprinkler in the back yard was on. It could not be turned of by any means except turn of the water source. The water bill that month was $1,800+ including $1,700+ for water only. Because nothing wrong for the Rain Bird valves in the front yard. So I replaced defective Orbit valve with a Rain Bird valve. Few months later, 2nd Orbit valve defected. I had to replace it. Then 3rd Orbit valves defected. I decide to replace all 9 Orbit valves. Done with 7, 2 more to go ( see pictures )

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GABBB Fairly easy to install. Easy to find repair parts.
After 20 years, the original irrigation system in our yard is in need of repairs. I've had three valves die, and since they were brands the landscaper installed, I can't find parts for them easily. I opted to remove the old valve and replace with new RainBird valves.
The valves are easy info to install. You just need to remove enough pipe on either side to slip in the new valve and use the appropriate male threaded adapters on each end to adapt to the inflow pipe and outflow pipe.
Very easy to wire. Very easy to bleed it to remove air in the line. For the price, this cannot be beat, and I imagine it will be easy to get replacement parts if they are ever needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dcintexas Best replacement for Toro irrigation valve
This valve is easy to install with the housing having threads. This allows the installer to thread on one inch PVC pipe prior to complete installation. The housing has very defined instructions and markings which aid in the installation process. This is my sixth valve to purchase and I am replacing the Toro valves that fail. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.
This valve has easy to replace components that make the valve a user friendly model and the replacement parts are readily available. I have several that are working like new but know that working on these valves will be easier than the toro models.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYWANNABEPRO Good valve, good value
We have used this brand before and like it. We have had this one for 1 1/2 months and it has worked great. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobinColorado Tough last a long time
My manifold had a sudden freeze last winter and cracked. Had to replace the whole thing. The old valves were the same model and lasted 23 years. I could have reused them (they still worked fine) but I decided to replace them as well. These valves are tough, even in Colorado weather.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MizerDad Good product that wears out fast.
I have three valves side by side as a part of my irrigation system. I have had to replace all three each year because they start to leak around the seal. I have tried replacing only the diaphragm but each time I have tried it still leaks. Then I have wasted the money on the diaphragm and still need to replace the valve. I have replaced each valve 2-3 times.
