Why do these regulators drip from the vent hole?

I use these pressure regulators to reduce the water pressure (65lbs+) prior to entering my automatic horse waterers which can only withstand up to 50lbs of pressure. They work fine for a few weeks and then start to drip from the vent hole in the center of the regulator. I'd like to know what causes this since I have approximately 10 in use at one time.

Answer: 
If the regulator is under static or constant water pressure, it may weaken the internal spring or system and start leaking. Look for a pressure reducer that is made for constant water pressure.

Answer: 
After looking at another brand, a possibility for the early failure could be aggregated water hammer from when the water turns on.

Answer: 
my thought is that it is insuring the pressure is at 25 psi and it may be because your water is hard so it has build up in it

The best answer I can give based on my experience is that these pressure regulators are simply not well made. I have had similar experience and replaced the one in my drip system several times only to have it fail again after a few months. In my case, rather than dripping I typically observe a stream of water shooting out of the hole and a whining noise. I am currently trying a similar one from a different manufacturer that I bought at the "other" big box home improvement store, so far it is working but it has only been about a month.
As far as what the hole is for, I believe it is for pressure relief. I think it is normal to drip a little when it first turns on while it adjusts, but I don't believe it should be steadily dripping all the time or shooting a 10 ft stream of water. Read Less

Leaking from the vent hole. Permanent failure.

Is the failure possibly caused by contamination? I'm wondering if installing the regulator down stream of the filter will help solve this problem?

25 psi Hose Thread Pressure Regulator is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I guess it works.... When I purchased an irrigation kit one of the pieces that was included that I never would have considered was this pressure regulator. I suppose that if I connected my irrigation kit without a pressure regulator I would find tubing connectors and micro sprayers either bursting or at the very least disconnecting. And, now that I am creating another irrigation layout I thought I should use the same components as I had originally. I'm guessing that the regulator works because I have had no "burst" issues in my irrigation layout. The only complaint I have with this is that its threads to not make a tight seal with threads from other components, and therefore there is the potential for leaking.

They last less than two seasons before failing. However they are half the price of ones purchased that have lasted more than four or five seasons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made for connecting drip system to your garden hose 25psi, 3/4" Female HOSE Threaded x 3/4" Male HOSE Threaded: I've determined that this plastic drip system water max pressure regulator is just like the gray "PD-8425" regulator (25psi) except this black "PD-8325" has coarser threads (fewer threads per inch) to match your spigot and garden hose. So it's female threads onto your house spigot and your garden hose threads onto it's male end. The female end has a rubber seal ring just like a garden hose. These are fairly solid, not thin walled like some I've seen, and shorter/more compact than other regulators I've seen. Don't over tighten, since the ring does the sealing, it's not necessary, and the plastic threads could strip.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Guaranteed to fail every time! I have a drawer full of these now, they fail reliably after 4-6 months of usage. After a while, they will either start quietly dripping all of the time watering the ground instead of your garden bed, shoot a 10 ft stream of water out the little hole on the side, and/or start making a loud whining noise (my favorite, because the noise clues you in to go investigate). Make no mistake, these are junk, and Home Depot should be quite embarrassed to sell this product and put pressure (heh heh) on DIG to improve the quality of this product or offer a comparable alternative. At around $5.27 a pop, I had been just buying more every few months but I'm done now and am trying the other bigbox guy's offering and hoping for a better outcome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this one installed OK. Some of the products will cross over from one manufacturer to another because of the standard hose thread. Parts that connect directly to the poly hose will not because of the slight change in the dia. of the hose wall. We cannot use HD hose and OSX fittings or some other brand; conformity would be nice. Surprise! no one told me. This is adequate (with appropriate connections) and reduces the pressure without the need to reduce the flow of water at the tap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DIG Pressure regulator I'm not sure if DIG makes these, but they are the only ones Home Depot sells, They are totally UNRELIABLE! I am like reviewer Steve from San Diego. I have a drawer full of leaky pressure regulators. Same exact experience that Steve has had. I wish I could find a reliable one. I don't understand how such a simple concept can be implemented so poorly. Find one somewhere else, if you can. It might actually last longer than 6 months because these don't.
