Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jenn Easy to use kit
This irrigation kit was easy to use (once you read the instructions), but if you run out of 1/8" tubing, which it was designed for, you're going to have a hard time getting more. HD doesn't stock it in the stores, so you'll have to order online. However, the 1/8" is easier to use than the 1/4", because you don't have to ruin your fingers trying to stretch it over any barbs, it just slides into the manifold. It does come with adapters for 1/4", but again, those are tough on the hands.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suley Does the job!
Does the job perfectly. Works fine without a pressure reducer for direct conversion of sprinklers to drip irrigation. Unused ports can be shut off using the plugs (included). Just attach drip tubing and emitters and you are good to go!

Great product for saving water by converting sprinklers to a drip system.

Very good product. Easy to assemble. Like the way lid comes off to clean.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MMNM 12-Outlet Drip Manifold - Design is fine, but material doesn't handle freezing temperatures
Easy to install and the 12 outlets come with pre-installed nipple plugs, so you don't have to use all 12 outlets. My experience is that the plastic material used does not hold up to winter freezing and ice expansion. With out fail, each spring when I start watering again, the screw on lid is cracked around the threads and the water pressure blows off the top. . . And I am off to buy a whole new manifold, just to replace the lid. Yes, I know the pros say you should drain or blow the water out of your irrigation system each fall, but not everyone has the pro landscaping gear to do that. My complaint is that the plastic is very brittle. I've seen other drip manifolds that are made from a softer and more flexible plastic. These don't seem to have the freeze and crack problem. Until I find a different manufacturer, I will have to partially un-screw the lids each fall to allow the remaining water to evaporate and to allow room for ice expansion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by turbo1889 Best choice to use in making garden hose to multiple drip lines adapter.
I was looking to make an adapter that would screw onto a regular garden hose connection and feed a bunch of drip lines. I finally decided on using this unit with a 5/8 hose barb to 1/2 pipe thread adapter screwed into it and a short length of female end garden hose cut and clamped onto the hose barb. Then I can just screw it into the regular garden hose system and feed up to 12 separate drip lines. It has a built in filter in the head that you can unscrew the head and clean and it has twelve little pressure/flow regulator cones inside 12 sockets under the filter so if you need full flow and pressure on one or more of the drip lines you can just remove one of that little cones for that line only and the other lines stay regulated (just use a pair of needle nose pliers to gently grap the cone and it slides right out of its socket). Works excellent for my application. If your garden hose or sprinkler line pressures are abnormally high you might want to put a 20-25 psi pressure regulator in the feed line to this unit because otherwise it could blow its head cap off because there is only one big screw thread holding it on and it might not be able to take high end pressures but works fine at my garden hose pressure level.
