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 Read More
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?

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dig Pressure Regulator = Junk I have had 2 of these go bad in 6 weeks. Same issues as many on here- Steve from San Diego describes it perfectly for me as well. Why would DIG or Home Depot want to sell such a horrible product? Ultimately I installed the drip system to save water. These regulator's are defying the system and not saving water! I don't trust DIG products anymore. July 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 25 psi hose thread pressure regulator Product was what I was looking for , and there was a good selection June 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by insure you have the right pressure over does a great job have it on my drip line around my tree does ware over time due to hard water but for the cost easy to replace March 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install I used this to reduce the pressure from the water line to the drip irrigation line. It works as advertise. Problem is that they fail with time. February 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by heck uv an idea HD employee in plumbing dept knew his stuff- im a rookie and he made it easy for me- from the parts to buy to the final install and testing- great customer service and know how- September 16, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 4, 2015
