The Dura Multi-Port Manifold Fittings are an excellent all-in-one option that allows you connect multiple solenoid valves with the minimum of fuss. Also, less joins means less chances of a leak, which is very important with manifolds.
Manifold Fittings are an excellent glue & teflon free alternative to PVC Solenoid Manifolds. They also make for easy maintenance, if a solenoid is faulty and needs to be replaced, the fittings can simply be unscrewed and the valve replaced. With PVC, often the whole manifold needs to be cut out and replaced.
Requires Dura Manifold Nipples to connect to solenoid valves.

Are there any safety standards my irrigation system must meet?
The main safety concern is regarding the water supply. To avoid contamination of the mains water upstream, in most municipalities, a Dual Check Valve is required at the water connection.
Can I run an irrigation system off a regular garden tap?
A garden tap is an excellent place to connect your irrigation system. Ideally, install a connection point behind the tap (turn the water off first) so you can still use your tap to fill a bucket when you need to.
Do I need a plumber to install or fix my system?
No, unless you’re tapping into your water supply, a plumber isn’t required. Most domestic irrigation systems can be installed by anyone half handy.
Do I need to use teflon tape? How much do I need to use?
Whenever you’re connecting two threaded fittings, teflon is required. The only exception is whenever either fitting has an O-ring, in this case, do not apply teflon as it may cause the O-ring to not seal correctly. The amount of teflon you apply depends on the application. In any constant pressure applications you look at up to wrapping around the thread up to 20 times, whereas in any non-constant pressure applications, like on irrigation risers, 2 or 3 times around the thread is enough.
