Does drain valve work horizontal as well as face down?

As long as your horizontal drain is pitched downward.

The low point where I install the drain valve is in a lake drain that maybe submerged in water at times, Will it drain?

If I understand correctly what you are describing, it will only drain to the level of the lake. Keep in mind that when there is no water pressure in your pipe you are trying to drain, the valve is in the "open" position. As such, the lake water could back flow INTO the pipe you are trying to drain.

Line pressure is low. Mine do best on high power (50+ lb.) water lines.

How is this installed? Meaning, do I put it on using a T piece? Does it go up or down?

I put mine on a T piece as you suggested. That piece needs to have the standard 1/2" thread. I set mine horizontally but down probably makes the most sense so that it will completely drain the pipe.

So far it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Being plastic, however, I'm interested in knowing how long it will last. Even the more expensive brass variety have a life span so wondering how these two materials will compare.

Allows the excess water to drain from lowest end of sprinkler run. My sprinkler system installed incorrectltly. This allows for drainage once system shuts off. I did research prior to purchase.

Seems to be as advertised. It could probably be improved by adding more discharge holes in case dirt/debris blocks some of them, it only has four as designed.

I messed up the first one I put on, I had run the new lines, sat for a few days, then got the valves and put it on. Well, forgot to flush the lines first, so, very quickly, it was apparent it was not going to close once it opened. That's because I didn't flush them, and, tiny pieces of PVC clogged it. So, took it off, flushed the lines, and put another drain valve on, works perfectly now.
