    My finished manifold system. Got to say I’m quite proud of how it turned out, even though I am sure there’s dozens of things “not to code” y’all professionals will want to scream out loud at Also wanted to thank all the pros for all of the advice on this forum!

    What do y’all think?

    Thank you, everyone. Definitely learned it’s easier to make neat solder joints when the joint is facing down (vs horizontal or up) and you get a bit of gravity assist with the solder.

    Small thing, but I really like the labels on the handles. I have yet to do a manifold (small rental units), but I constantly am putting hang tags on valves for tenants to identify (main, outdoor spigots, etc...). Might have to steal this idea as it looks pretty sleek, and no risk of a tag "missing" and them not being able to identify the valve.

    What's going on with the showers to call for 3/4"? only shower/tub valves I've used are 1/2"?
