Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrewLM No problems
I just handed the box to the plumber, who just looked through it and said, "Yup, that's everything I need". I didn't hover over him, but it seemed to go in pretty quickly (this was a new one, so he had to cut out a piece of pipe). It seems to be working as expected and not leaking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gearhead Perfect drop in replacement
This was a perfect drop in replacement for the 15 year old Wilkins unit it was replacing. This meant I only had to undo the unions and slide the new unit it place-- I didn't even have to sweat the new fittings onto the copper. Only had to have the water to the house shut off for five minutes instead of 30 which made the wife and kids much happier.
Pricing was middle of the road, but the product was available to be shipped immediately so it was worth it to me to pay more since my water pressure inside the house was 140 psi and EVERYTHING was leaking.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BlueRose Good, but not a good value
The ease of installation was great, but the device SHOULD last at about a year (according to HD staff and the plumber who installed my water heater)... on my 4th one now, average life expectancy has been 6 months, making it less and less of a value for the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by StevenR Efficient Pressure Reducer Valve Installation
The replacement installation was a perfect size match for my Honeywell Braukmann making installation go fast as the threading on the PRV matched the existing pre-sweated union. The adjustment range is not fantastic, 25 to 75, and the temperature range is lower than many making a full sun exposure in the southwest a bit daring. This model was designed in 1972, so it has proof of time behind it, and likely a significant "plumbers' trade" discount improving the plumbers profit. Following installation, the pressure was measured by the plumber at 60 lbs, not the 50 lbs as advertised. There is a benefit to this model as it is repairable/rebuildable if you find a plumber that will do that; as I could not, repairability is a "feature" of no value to the non-plumber home owner. FYI California, this valve does meet California's front running plumbing regulations for low/no lead construction. Now, for the acid test, it has held the desired 70 lbs. pressure with nominal fall-off (drop in pressure) when fixtures are in use. We have backflow regulations in our community, so thermal expansion is a problem that my plumber says can be exacerbated (my word, no the plumbers) by a poorly performing PRV. I doubt that, so I also installed a thermal expansion tank. FYI, Home Depot also provided me with the expansion tank (an obsolete model) no longer sold by the manufacturer.

Purchased these units for use at our HOA. They were installed easily by one of our HOA owners that has plumbing experience. There were no complications and the valves have not required any additional attention other than to monitor the PSI.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Iceman This was hard to fine and Home Depot had it
Plumbing supply only had single union which would of meant digging out my main line, in my case.
Getting the double union saved me lots of work. ++

I like how easy it is to install. However, the product I received may have been defective since water is still dripping from the shower head and faucets.
