Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Leak near diaphram Give star two because it provide 6 year warranty. Bought this converter to replace the old Champion brass valves stem that was worked for more than 25 years. Installed and found this converter has leak at the cover that holds down a diaphragm with > 6 screws. It was cheap design part. I will not bother to buy another same one because the install labor cost more than $85. I plan to buy the brass convert that costs more than double. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handy If You Don't Want to Completely Replace Your Manual Valve I have bought several of these converter valves for about the last 15 years. They are a good choice (maybe the only choice) if you want to convert rather than replace a manual sprinkler valve. I put them on old Champion brass valves and they worked perfectly. However, the early model valves all failed in about 10 years, usually the solenoid first and then the valve itself. I replaced them with the newer model which has the manual on/off control integrated with the solenoid, and have had no failures so far. July 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 3/4 in. Automatic Converter Valve These seem to be a rather "fair" valve. They don't seem to take the number of yearly cycles my system puts on them. The valve seat falls off of the stem, after about 9 months usage. That means I replace them at the start of each summer season in early May. Sometimes sooner. The retaining system on the seat needs to be re-designed for longer life. Other than that, the valves work just fine. I have been dealing with this problem for 7 years now. Come-0n-Man. You folks can do better than this. July 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Seal retainer sub assembly failure This valve failed approximately a month after installation. It failed at the point mentioned above. I came home from a three day trip to find the sprinklers on and water gushing out of the valve. I won't be buying this again. It's brass fitted to threaded plastic. It's like putting a 53' Chevy Bel-Air on a 1980s compact vehicle frame, can't handle the pressure. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The right part for the job It is exactly what I needed for a 40 year old Champion system. It screws right on the the old manifold. You just have to watch that the seal under the stem is in the right place. Very easy installation. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to find replacement valve for 3/4" so there are limited choices I bought 4 of these to replace older ones from the 1970's and they do the job well. One problem I had is that two of them did not have the handles in the box and had to be exchanged and I still wound up with one without a handle, so check the box for all the parts. December 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great solid ladder This ladder far exceeds my expectations. Solid and very stable. It's big so be careful moving this ladder around. October 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by manual ON/OFF feature disaster waiting to happen A few years back, the last time I bought valves, all valves like this one had little plastic bleed screws for manually opening the valve. The new one has a lever that rotates the solenoid so as to break the o-ring seal with the base of the unit. First off, to an old time user, it is not blatantly obvious if the manual release tab is to be pushed, pulled, rotated or trashed. Once learning that it merely rotates the valve to break the seal, I told myself, be ready to replace this one. The approach is never going to stand up for long with my gardener opening and closing it each week when he manually waters certain areas. It seems to me that to save pennies, they dramatically curtailed product reliability. August 15, 2014
