I have 3 valves and doing all 3 in pipe is just too bulky IMO. Plus, I've read some things about air flow issues with the extended pipe and valve remoted like your pictures.

I know the valve location based upon the handle location, much like the original handle location on the valve. Jsut got tired of bending over and adjusting and checking.

Besides, I have a welder, chop saws, tap & die kits, time, and I like to fabricate.

Just another way to "skin a cat".
