Does that particular line have its own Main Valve? If so, might try adjusting UP the main Flow of water to it.
Yes, multiple Orbit ports, 2-3 will be better
Adjust the screw-looking piece on the top of the manifold, there is one for each line. Turn counterclockwise for more flow ("open"), clockwise to close. Note to be gentle, they are a softer plastic and you could easily damage them.
I have not attempted this before but I'm sure it can be done. You will need to go to your nearest Home Depot and pick up a threaded adapter. Depending on the size of the connection of your hose (either 3/4 in or 1/2 in) and the size of the input of the orbit manifold is 1/2 in. It will be a male to male adapter. One end of the adapter will screw into your hose in the other end will screw into the bottom of the manifold.
Just remove little black cap, and push on 1/4" tubing by hand. Easy peazy
Turning those plastic screw things are indeed the adjustment. Maybe the water pressure from supply is too hi? I used these in flower bed and those screw adjustments worked fine. I would double check water pressure feeding them at the source..
Don't know. Using it without pressure regulator?
Possibly cuz they leak if pressure is too intense
Yes, overtightening can be a problem. If you are using Teflon tape stop it. Using this white tape adds extra pressure to the parts that. I have had parts crack under the add pressure of using this tape, and it is not needed in most cases.
