Yeah, I used the existing PEX stuff to replace the manifold.

Edit: 6/16/2019
This evening a black pickup stopped and a big guy broke the tailgate off his truck
when that heavy tank hit it. The gate was free on the left side but hanging by the right side.
He gave a big push, and the tank went forward so hard, when it hit the cab,
the truck was jolted so hard the drivers door flipped back and forth..
He re-rigged the tailgate and drove away. All in about 90 seconds. (security cam video).

The same guy came by and picked up an old Aluminum TV antenna that weighted about .3 lbs.
But, he drove past the heavy steel dryer drum, just up the street.. Maybe his back is sore.?.

By weight old hot water heaters contain a lot of foam and wet mineral build up. Barely worth dragging them to a scrap yard

I don't think these people are thinking clearly.. Maybe it's drugs?
I've seen them take a lot of junk stuff with metal and leave really nice
big screen TV sets, just sitting there..
Some with a remote and a sign saying "Free TV and it Works"..
Found that odd..
