When you want liquid to flow 3 different ways from a pump, are folks using a T that has another T on one of the branches or do you ever use a four way connector with ball valves on each end?

In the diagram below, I have "C1" and "C2" where it seems I need 3 different directions after the pumps.
C1 has input from Pump1 proportional valve and outputting to 1) HLT re-circ 2) MT underletting 3) HERMS.in for sparging/MT fill
C2 has input from Pump2 proportional valve and outputting to 1) HERMS.in for Mash re-circ 2) whirlpool 3) chiller

The valves are going to be all 1/2" NPT because they are motorized. I am thinking this cross should work. Any issues anyone can think of?
