Questions & Answers


Does this work well? for some of you who have had to use glue and primer prior to using this one...

Asked by Sam December 2, 2020

I’ve had one for at least 10 years. Sold that house and installed the same one at my new house. No issues at all with either manifold. I used some assembly lube on the o rings during install. No leaks, valves operate dependably. I like that I can unscrew it if I need to.

How to do blow out sprinkler lines

Asked by Wayne October 21, 2020

My system is self draining. I turn off water supply, open valves and system has drains at the ends and intermitten low areas.

Are there manual override switches on these valves?

Asked by October 3, 2020


I have seen questions about the anti-siphon issues of this system. I came across this part from ...

Asked by Jay September 17, 2020

You always want the anti-siphon placed higher than the highest sprinkler head as it protects your potable water system and in Idaho has to be checked annually for proper operation ..A shut of valve and drain valve should be placed underground to keep it from freezing you can us a six or eight inch plastic pipe to access them. I would suggest using ball valves as they last longer.

6 new valves solnoid leaks on 4 valves is there an o ring or something that should go in it.

Asked by jgj September 11, 2020

there is an o ring at every joint you can get some faucet lube when you put them together but it may be the fitting are to loose or to tight should only tighten them hand tight other wise you can crack a fitting. have replaced my whole system and before i covered them i tested them under pressure had one loose fitting. after i loosened it up and retightened i had no more problems . I really love them I am an older man and wanted to make my system easier to repair should i pas can now change a valve in 15 minutes.

Manual zone control at manifold?

Asked by Owen August 27, 2020

Yes, these valves can be manually turned off and on right from the top of the valve. The valves are marked to show the off and on positions. This is a photo of my 5 sprinkler valves for my 5 zone system. As you can see there are arrows on the top of the valves.

can I get a manual for this orbit 3 valve system I cannot find mine

Asked by bill July 19, 2020

If one has a bit of experience in plumbing and wiring it’s self explanatory just pay attention to the direction of water flow marked by arrows also the 6 wires 2 per solenoid take one from each splice them together to the white common wire and the remaining three splice them to the individual zone colored wires and you are good to go

My inlet is 1 1/2”. Can this manifold be hooked up to it?

Asked by Tbone July 5, 2020

with adapters you can hook this up to about anything takes a little thought and engineering. but yes

Where do you buy replacement gaskets? No schematic with part numbers for anything, say like valv...

Asked by Jim May 30, 2020

TruthSlayer Obviously you did not read the question carefully when you answered the question and your answer was just fluff to get your name in print. And you did not check to see if HD carries spare gaskets which they do not do. Also Orbit does not answer it's emails when sent or do they have any information on their website about gaskets for this manifold. Therefore buyers beware and do not buy this manifold. Useless response

What size valve box will the 3-valve inline manifold assembly fit into? Will a 12 in. x 17 in. R...

Asked by Dtgent May 28, 2020

12 inch box is in my mined to narrow I used it but really like a bigger box do it right the first time a lot easier down the line. they can last 40 years or so no problem

Great idea poor quality leaks
3 units in 6 months, 1st off once you get it you’ll need to take it apart and lube the seals or it will leak, 2nd unit unreliable, flooded my yard multiple times solenoid did not shut off, 3rd unit I attached the picture, plastic brittle and broke two places, my psi is 65 btw. I bought hunter solenoids this time. Orbit has no support by phone. Unreliable

Easy Install, Poor Performance
I installed these valves in March and they do not seal very well at all. I hear my well pump losing pressure constantly through the day. I’ve taken them apart 4 times already in 2 months to see if any debris is getting pulled in from the well, but haven’t been able to find an obstruction. Maybe the solenoids are faulty. I’ve tried tightening them extra. I don’t know what the issue is but if I was to go back, I would not purchase these again.

I incorporated this product into an irrigation system upgrade for a customer. The existing system was a convoluted series of connections to an outside hose spigot requiring manual control. The upgraded system is now fully automated . This product greatly simplified the connection process for both water supply, electrical and outflow. The individual union joints on all connections is indicative of a well thought out design. The only aspect of the product that was questionable was the wire nuts that were included. The wire nuts are poorly made requiring some extra attention to get them to properly grab the wires.

After installing toro and rain bird for so many years, i was willing to try something new. I was excited to see a preassembled manifold, as I knew it would save lots of time in the setup, which it did. I greased all o rings and taped the 1” threads, and after connecting and charging the system, I was very frustrated to see that two solenoid o rings were faulty and needed replacing, and one of the valve housings CRACKED just below the solenoid. What is scary is that it wasn’t cracked upon installation, I actually watched it slowly bubble up and burst open under the water pressure, which makes me wonder how long it will be before the rest of the valves fail. I wasn’t about to disassemble the entire manifold and engage in the lengthy online return process, as the job was time sensitive, so I just went into the local hardware store and grabbed a replacement valve and threw it in. I would not recommend orbit based on this experience.

Recently had reclaimed water system installed in our neighborhood. I decided to connect my sprinkler system to it which had been connected to potable water. My existing valve system was in pretty messy shape...too deep in ground and sprinkler box was always filled with water. I have 5 zones so also ordered the 2-valve manifold and connected them together. It was VERY easy to install and make the connections. I was slightly concerned with the higher pressure of the reclaimed water system that the hand tightened connections may leak...I followed the installation instructions with just hand tightening....AND when I turned on the water...EVERYTHING was fine! NO leaks at all! I raised the sprinkler box about 6 inches...filled bottom with pea gravel and placed new 5-valve manifold on bricks....I am very happy box is always now completely dry. I recommend this product!

it was cheaper than building separately. it was pretty easy to install and I haven't noticed any leaks...will keep looking. the headache was with the valves - all my other valves have the wires that can go either way for the common. These valves are specific, but not clearly marked. so it took a couple tries. Also I used poly pipe not PVC - so I had to buy the adapter parts...a poly version would have been nice.

Super easy manifold
The reason this thing is great is because it is so simple and so much of the work has been done. If you have 6 zones you can just chain them together and you now have the bulk of your work done and you can move on to other plumbing in the system. Everything is pre-assembled and it also comes with a coupler should you need to adjust the size. All in all its simple and works really well and saves a ton of time.

Great modular expandable manifold
Great manifold kit. It is pretty conservative when concerning the form factor and space. The overall assembly seems to be pretty decent, but feels a little bit cheap with the thin walled plastic on the solenoid valve assemblies. I am not concerned with the pipes, but I hope to see long life with these manifolds. They do concentrate a lot on being modular and non-permanent, hence all the union style fittings with o-rings for sealing. While this makes it easy to expand and repair in the future, weather conditions may affect these unions differently, so your mileage may vary. The solenoids work on a 24VDC signal, so it works with most standard irrigation and automation items. If you are using a non-standard IA signal, like if you are using an arduino, use of a relay to trigger a 24VDC sequence should be that straightforward. A good kit and great time-saver, I just worry about the actual solenoid assemblies. Only time will tell....
