New valves and manifold

Hi, I'm adding a zone to and existing 3 zone manifold made with PVC. The 3 valves are all leaking so I decided to buy a new 4 valve set with the manifold and replace everything with new. I have hunter jar tops now which are all leaking. The new manifold assembly comes with (4) PGV-101MB (square type). Is the square type better quality then the jar top? Can I easily service them without taking the valves out? The Jar tops were easy to fix when they leaked.

I'm not a fan of jar tops at all.
The square valves are the ones you want. Get them WITH flow controls. They're also very simple to service.
