Customer reviews for Valve Box Base

Valve Box Base

No more cutting and sawing to fit your manifold and valve installation. Orbit's Valve Box Base does the work for you with multiple knock-out pipe slots. The easily removable slots are aligned to allow for up to 4 sprinkler header lines from the valve manifold. Simply remove the appropriate about of slots for your installation. No special tools required. Comes with 2 mouse hole covers that can be easily snapped out of the base to cover valve box openings for greater valve protection.

I liked how the base simplified things, but I would have liked some instructions included with the product, also saying what valve box works best with it. Really the base and valve boxes should be available to be purchased as a set.
Pros: Easy to Install, Functionality

I recently purchased two NDS 113BC valve boxes and two 4-valve manifold setups (the manifolds i bought are made by ActionMachine) which are just a tad too large to fit directly in the NDS 113BC without significant cutting. I was wondering if the Orbit Valve Box Platform 53230 properly fits as a base under the NDS 113BC valve box for housing the 4-valve manifolds. Since I couldn't locate the information online anywhere, I decided to buy them and find out.
I was pleasantly surprised that the answer is yes! They fit perfectly. This platform really makes a fantastic base for the valve boxes, minimizes cutting, and fits even custom valve manifold setups.

Review 3 for Valve Box Base
from Connecticut

Must-have for installing more than 1 valve

If you get the matching box, this base is key! Worth every penny. As a newbie, I installed a 6 zone system with 2 of these in tandem. Placed in pit with bricks under corners, leveled, filled in with small rocks, placed manifolds and valves in, dropped box on top and DONE! Modified some openings a little with handheld cutter by chipping away the plastic.
I needed to create an extension to connect the 2 manifolds together because of the several inches that resulted between the boxes/bases, so get parts to accommodate this.

Used for inground sprinkler control box, do-it-yourself. Really made putting the controls/pipes together and keeping them aligned easy. Shipping was amazing, I think it took 2 days, wow.

I have installed other valve boxes without using this base. The difference it makes is like night and day. I don't know why Home Depot does not carry these in the store.

The base fits the standard box, the openings allow enough room for 4 valves and the manifold.
