I have five 3/4 copper water lines coming into my mechanicals room along the ceiling - so they are nicely lined up in a horizontal plane, parallel to the plane of the ceiling.
However, our manifolds and valves, etc., are all on unistrut which are on the wall.
So these copper lines need to change planes from running horizontal on the ceiling to running vertically on the wall.
The obvious way to do this is by adding 2+ welds to each line and reducing flow/psi with 2+ 90 elbows on each line. This will work.
However, are there nicer, more elegant ways to change the plane of a group of copper pipes ?
Another thought I had was to terminate them all with sharkbite couplers and put in pex "leaders" to connect the pipes coming in onto the manifold wall ... that would be a very nice, wide sweep for the water and we could cut them all exactly the right length and maybe bundle them or something ...
Again, I am wondering: is there a "right" way to do this that stays all copper and doesn't jig-jag it through a bunch of 90s (and extra welds) ?
