Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 1234 Not the best quality
The filter leaked around the filter fitting. I called the manufacturer and they advised it is not made to hold constant pressure. It should be mounted after the timer. This information is not listed anywhere. I returned the first unit and purchased a second unit. Then mounted it after the timer. My neighbor also had a leaker as he had also mounted it before the timer. Poor product. No installation information.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Installed easy. Did not leak.
I was replacing one I got from Lowes, because it leacked heavily. This one went on easy, and has not leaked.

maybe only if the threads were made of a harder plastic as not to cross thread.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Elvis156 HORRIBLE!!!!! BUYER BEWARE!!
Let me say----this is the first review I wrote-----DO .....NOT....BUY THIS!!!
I spent 2 hours digging up, cutting, gluing fittings,waiting 24 hours for glue to dry....and testing-----only to find pressure is still the EXACT same as prior.
This pressure regulator is absolute GARBAGE!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeBrewerTX Good value, functional filter
First of all, there are a couple of reviews here where this product leaked, or came apart when turning on the water.. While I can't say for sure, perhaps those folks didn't have a clear picture of what this filter is for and it's limitations.
This is a filter, NOT a pressure regulator. There are other products which are pressure regulators that look very similar to this one, however this unit is not. It is only a filter. It is intended for low pressure drip irrigation systems that run 25 psi or less. If you are attaching this to utility water, or other pressurized water line, check the pressure first and if it's above 25psi, install a regulator to lower that pressure to 25 psi or less before installing this product.
I installed this on my rainwater collection system and use it to filter that water for my drip irrigation system. Works great to keep the emitters clog free. Easy maintenance of the filter. I don't need a pressure regulator because the rainwater system is less that 25 psi.

Good price and value for filtering particles out of a garden pot watering system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle Works fine
Installed this with no problem. We did notice a very small leak where the cylinder which holds the actual filter screen meets the inline pipe portion of the assembly. When slightly tightening it didn't work, we removed the filter piece, added about 2 wraps of teflon thread tape, reinstalled, and haven't seen a drop since. I would absolutely buy this again. Also, filter screen replacements are actually available, which made a big difference in my initial selection of the item.
