I have three 4-way brass hose adapters and one appears to be leaking thru one of the 4 outlet ball valves. Are they repairable?

I swear these things are made to fail after 2 yrs max. Seems like I always have one that the handle is broken on or has a crack or just plain leaks.

At some point building one with hise bibs and PVC is going to be cheaper.

Yes to being throw-a-ways. Drat. Sure looks like the valve guys could be replaced.

I made several like this

DIY Hose Manifolds and Splitters - Applied Paranoia Blog

But used about 4 inch sections in between each fitting. That way I can make at least one replacement or extension.

Since then, none of the factory plastic ones still in use have broken.
