    Brass nipple stock is best.

    and, gentlemen, that is why poly is better than PVC.

    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!
