I'm putting together a distribution manifold for a march pump, one that would allow me to send/receive fluid from any vessel with a few valve changes. Would you rather go solder or pipe-thread? Compression fittings would be nice...but at 12 duckets each from home-depot for 1/2" I think that'll be out of my price range. I'll be using NSF/ANSI lead-free brass valves.

One valve, then quick disconnects seems so much easier to me.

I'll be picking up my pump today and I'm going with the threaded pipe. Easier to take apart for cleaning or rearrange if I want to add to my system.
