Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HelixVineyard Fail Far Too Often
I have a fairly large drip system, using 8 or 10 pressure-reducing valves. I started out using these, since they are convenient and inexpensive. They work for a while, but fail far too soon: within weeks to months. Might be because my water pressure is over 100 PSI, but they seem to get calcium deposits quickly as well.
I'm going to try the more robust Model # PR-30-PIPE, rated for input pressure to 150 PSI, and at over twice the price, but if they last, money well spent.

This regulator worked perfectly to add on a drip zone to an existing sprinkler system! Easy to maintain and winterize in the fall as well.

I replace this reducer every 6 to 10 months for leaking. I put a union in the pipe for a quick replace. I'd rather pay more for one that works and doesn't leak. Going to search more. Do the HD purchasing agents ever read the reviews on the products they buy for the stores, or are they ok with customers being unhappy and going elsewhere?

Works great, but use a moveable fitting on low pressure end.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Selfer Best purchase I've ever made on an empty stomach
The 25 PSI 3/4 in. pipe thread pressure regulator was the finest 25 PSI 3/4 in. pipe thread regulator that I have ever seen, let alone to own one. The threads were perfectly molded and allowed a perfect fit for a 3/4 in. pipe thread hose fitting to be installed. Also, it was very light weight making it easily transportable and ease of installation. Additionally, the color of the unit was perfect for use in a flower bed. Since this 25 PSI 3/4 in. pipe thread pressure regulator was installed, I ain't blowed out one single soaker hose. I'm gonna buy me some more of them little boogers.

Home depot does not carry adequate setups to go from valve to pressure reducer. Even after you figure out how to the this dumb thing in It failed within weeks. Threads are all wrong for conversions to pipe. Drips were working fine for the first couple days and boom my pressure is now running 40 psi plus. Replaced and it was fine for about another week. Now its blowing my drip heads off again. Don't buy this garbage. Looks online for professional pressure reducer setup. The local store does not have the correct stuff. Off to dig some of my yard back up again for the third time.

Failed after about a year. Water now jetting from the port on the side. Fortunately port was pointed up so the water all came down and softened up the soil so I could dig up the pipe it's on easily.
