    looks great. How did you set up the nipples with the tees? I have some coming in the mail, and I'm curious what tee is being used for these.


    thanks,
    Phil

    Hello Phil,
    The nipples have threads on the back of them that screw right into the tee. The other 2 ends of the tee slip onto the pvc pipe.
    I used Teflon plumbers tape on the threads and pipe glue on the slips.
    Be sure to clean the pipe out good after cutting it, because the shards from cutting with stop up the nipples.
