3/4 in. Automatic Converter Valve is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design prone to failure due to plastic rather than metal on stopper I have 6 automatic valves. Two are 10 to 15 year old other brand valves and still work. The other 4 were Orbits like this, maybe 5 to 7 years old. Had to replace two of them with these as the diaphragms were failing and the repair part was not available separately. One new one failed almost immediately and was soon enough to swap for a replacement. Think it was 3 or 4 days after I bought it. One of the two failed today, just short of 10 months later. The part that has failed each time is the Seal Retainer Sub-Assembly at the bottom that connects to the shaft. Basically the stopper at the bottom. The stopper itself is very hard so seems fine, but the shaft is threaded in plastic, not metal so the stopper comes loose and the sprinkler will just run. Not only are the threads plastic, but also somewhat tapered so it is like a slight v shape. Seems like it would be better if it was not tapered but straight parallel with the shaft like a bolt thread, and also metal. When the original failed, I tried putting the retainer back on and re-installing, but it failed again, so I tried putting it on tighter and just when it seemed like it is getting to about the right tightness it just popped off. Didn't mess up the threads, just was too much pressure. Again it is because the threads are plastic and tapered. If it was at least straight I don't think it would pop off, or maybe just threaded a longer way. Both times it failed it was hours later before I noticed, at which point untold gallons of water were lost down the street, after the yard flooded. Not even sure it is worth warranty replacing as the time to install this again and cost in lost water is not something I want to go through again in a year or a week depending on how long it lasts. If it failed in the evening or if no one was home for a day or two, a huge amount of water would be lost. I'm going to look for another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pieces of junk.... I've had at least 3 of these, and all have failed in less than a year. Whether they break completely or simply fail to function, they fail. All of mine have failed after the return time period, so I've just bought replacements, but never this kind again. Like others, the ones that were installed at my house 20 years ago lasted....2 of them are still installed. I did have one of these fail when gone on vacation and the neighbor watching my house didn't notice until it had flooded his backyard too! By then, it had cost me over $75 in lost water! Never again! Wish I could find a good replacement.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New product has problem to burst open and flood the yard This valve used to be very reliable until last year when I replaced with new ones. since then the yard being flooded twice really bad when we're out. Its a mess there. At least two things have changed to cause this problem. Both thread design and the plastic material have been altered.
