There were two problems I had with the installation.
1. There was no washer included on the connection between the pressure regulator and the adapter connecting to it upstream. This caused it to leak profusely. Both kits were missing the washer. I added washers to both of them and that took care of the problem.
2.The other problem I ran into, was not a problem with the kit, but just something to be aware of, was that I was using .630 OD tubing to connect to the compression swivel. The compression swivel only supports .700 OD tubing, which resulting in a leak. SprinklerWarehouse does not carry a compression swivel for .630 OD tubing. I was able to get a proper sized compression swivel at Ace Hardware.
