The problem there isn't the pvc, it's the lack of understanding in the organization of piping systems for ease of maintenance.

And think, all those valves could neatly fit in a single rectangular box.

Once upon a time....

I was called out to a job described as a leaking valve.

a guy had a regular rectangular box with maybe 10 to 12 DV-slip valves inside.

the leak was on the side of the bottom portion of the valve.

I would rather have encountered that shown in your picture cajun.
is that 200 or sch40?

They all don't have to fit inside a rectangular box. That's the point. I might have located the connections up in the bed so. Here again just a suggestion, don't take things so literal, but I see a really screwed up mainline trail that appears to wrap back to the pvb. I don't know what other devices are in-line that are needed or not needed, I just know I'd take a stick of dynamite and pitch in there and start over!
