Alright, I was just proving both kinds of evidence to satisfy what you were asking, I will edit for content. Yeah, awesome doesn't describe it, I'd say my rig is, "functional and easy on eyes" Better describes it status. I can see from other perspectives tho, my rig probably looks like sh**.

OT: What is the status of this homemade loop? I hear the hose you'd use for like dishwashers and such is real good. Doesn't leak but it doesn't bend either, lol.

EDIT: Can we get some pics of the materials you have? Like, whats this $10 piece of copper? I'm pretty interested in this man.

I understand the price difference but in reguards to how much time did you put into that
I work 6 days a week sometimes 10+hrs a day
my time is worth alot to save a little money but spend days working on it, I cant justify that.
A pet project just to do it ok but in all reallity its hard to justify that kind of time
