I've had to replace valves when the bottom half of the housing broke.

Interesting. I haven't had that problem, but our pressure may not be that excessive. I had to replace one solenoid and one diaphragm (a tiny pebble got under it so it would not shut off...when I pulled the pebble out the leak was better, but it still dribbled (apparently the diaphragm was permanently deformed), so I opened it up again and replaced it.

The only pressure reducers I have are on the drip zones AFTER the valve (otherwise the drip nozzles could pop).
