    Looks good.
    Maybe could use some gray sch 80 fittings on the conduit to make it look more professional.

    HA HA HA ....Not to your liking Wet? Manifold is already at the lowest point of the yard.

    No you have one up on me for sure. I was in the biz for 30 years and never installed a manifold.

    Thank you Sprinkus. Are you talking about the 90 degree fittings to the left in the picture against the fence? If so,they will be unseen below grade covered with mulch.

    I give up,where will it break and why? Are you referring to that white coupling connecting the 6" painted sch 80 fitting on the manifold?

    I would have bedded the entire manifold in gravel, not support it with one block.
