The easily removable slots are aligned to allow for up to 4 sprinkler header lines from the valve manifold. Simply remove the appropriate about of slots for your installation. No special tools required. Comes with 2 mouse hole covers that can be easily snapped out of the base to cover valve box openings for greater valve protection.

  • Use with orbit's sprinkler valve system to complete your installation
  • Ready-made removable slots for easy sprinkler valve installation
  • No more cutting and sawing
  • Fits both standard 12 in. and extension valve boxes

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by very helpful with assembly I liked how the base simplified things, but I would have liked some instructions included with the product, also saying what valve box works best with it. Really the base and valve boxes should be available to be purchased as a set. July 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfectly fits the NDS 113BC valve box I recently purchased two NDS 113BC valve boxes and two 4-valve manifold setups (the manifolds i bought are made by ActionMachine) which are just a tad too large to fit directly in the NDS 113BC without significant cutting. I was wondering if the Orbit Valve Box Platform 53230 properly fits as a base under the NDS 113BC valve box for housing the 4-valve manifolds. Since I couldn't locate the information online anywhere, I decided to buy them and find out. I was pleasantly surprised that the answer is yes! They fit perfectly. This platform really makes a fantastic base for the valve boxes, minimizes cutting, and fits even custom valve manifold setups. April 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Must-have for installing more than 1 valve If you get the matching box, this base is key! Worth every penny. As a newbie, I installed a 6 zone system with 2 of these in tandem. Placed in pit with bricks under corners, leveled, filled in with small rocks, placed manifolds and valves in, dropped box on top and DONE! Modified some openings a little with handheld cutter by chipping away the plastic. I needed to create an extension to connect the 2 manifolds together because of the several inches that resulted between the boxes/bases, so get parts to accommodate this. October 30, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what we needed Used for inground sprinkler control box, do-it-yourself. Really made putting the controls/pipes together and keeping them aligned easy. Shipping was amazing, I think it took 2 days, wow. October 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It works as advertised! I have installed other valve boxes without using this base. The difference it makes is like night and day. I don't know why Home Depot does not carry these in the store. September 6, 2011
