Piping of Pressuretrol & guage on new Wiel-McLain 380 steam boiler

What do you all think of this piping? The water level is about on line with the bottom of the pressure gauge.

I would have thought the first "L" off the pipe out of the boiler would be aimed upward to prevent water from collecting in the horizontal run connecting the gauge, Pressuretrol, and secondary Pressuretrol. Also, should there be a longer pipe going to the gauge from the "L"?

It's a new installation so if needed I will get them back to correct.

Thanks, David
