They're connected to normal city water pressured 3/4" pipe and I've had 3 blow-outs. These units are only 1 year old

Answer: 
I have had no problem with that so far. I have mine running on city water also. My pressure is unusually high (120psi), but I also have 15 risers on this zone. Is it possible that these froze over the winter and cracked? Seems unlikely even if you lived in a frost zone since the heads would be the first thing that drained.

Answer: 
I had the same experience with this product. After several months, water was spraying out of the seam of the lower section of the unit. I've already removed two defective units. The units were connected to normal city water pressure, along with other manifolds in the irrigation system. Other manifolds with a different brand have no issues.

Answer: 
For drip use, you should be using a pressure regulating filter for the valve that supplies the drip zone. Once you have this installed on the valve, it will regulate the pressure through the line to the manifold. This will reduce the failure with the units that you are seeing. Thanks!

Answer: 
It could work but I don't know if it would be the best way to do it. I think it would be easier to go the more traditional route and use 1/2 poly tubing from your hose timer with emitters going out from that.

Answer: 
They are not pressure compensated so will work with gravity flow. Don't expect much flow though.

Answer: 
Do you know what the pressure will be by the time the water travels down to the manifold? These will work at low pressures. The thing that will change is how many drippers, sprayers or emitters you can have connected to the tubing you run from the manifold. Remember that water use for drip products is most often measure in GPH (gallons per hour). If you can determine your flow rate in GPH, you can Read More

Answer: 
The caps will prevent leaking. I would also suggest using a flathead screwdriver to close the ports not in use. When the port is closed, you don't even need a cap. However I keep the caps on to prevent dirt from entering the ports.

ERBGO, that will depend on your water pressure.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good pressure I previously purchased a four port head that was not adjustable. This one has way better pressure and more heads! August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent & easy Love it! I converted a sprinkler head for drip irrigation of potted plants. Easy to adjust the flow of each tube & still have plenty of pressure for sprinkler heads. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well Made, Easy to Use! Have used this before at my old house and it's made very well, easy to figure out how to adjust and it does adjust well. Each of the eight outlets has it's own adjustment. I love that! Some plants need more water than others so this does the trick. July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK,But- An ok product, with a couple of aggravations. First, it seems like the flow requires adjustment(at each port) every time the manifold is used. Second, the ports are not identified. This means that if a port needs adjustment, it is necessary to follow the hose from each dripper to the appropriate port. Both of problems do not exist in another 8 port manifold (Raindrip). Only time will tell about the quality/value of the product. Since there is an equal product available at the same price, without the shortcomings, I would hesitate to recommend it. May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Orbit 8 Hose manifold Easy to install. Trying to clean the metal screen filters from debris is a chore. May 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by After Trying Many Others, This Is the Only Manifold That I'll Buy I've been buying these manifolds for several years to replace other manifold models or for conversions to drip. Depending on the location, I have these mounted on risers or have them installed below ground in 7 inch round irrigation boxes. What little leakage I''ve had is where the riser enters the manifold. Nothing a little Teflon tape doesn’t fix. Likes: - Swiveling connectors allow connection in tight spaces. - Strainer is removable for cleaning without disconnecting the tubes. - Valves are easily accessible from the top. - Once they’re connected, tubes won’t come off without being cut. Dislikes: - It requires a lot of pressure to get the tubing to fully slide over the connector barbs - Once they’re connected, tubes won’t come off without being cut. April 28, 2015
