    well, there is a boo boo, but I know it before I did it. on the far right the hot is on the right. I just went out a little further then straight down. I didn't feel like doing anything tricky with the piping , plus there going to washing machines.

    Nice piping.

    You can buy press/ hose valves nowadays, save some bucks and all the threaded connections. Here is the Apollo version.

    I prefer the rubber insert type unistrut clamps, it allows some expansion and contraction movement.

    What about water hammer arresters. Quick acting solenoids re notorious for banging piping.

    hot rod , I rather have I.P. that way if the ball valve gets seized i can just unscrew it and add a new one. when I asked for these valves the supply hose wanted to sell me what you posted. If I had to install hammer arresters where would I put them.
