Yeah that's basically what I had in mind. Just wasn't sure about the ball valves. And do you glue the PVC together? Or how do you prevent leaking?

I glued it and when I need to take it off the ball valve is screw on so it will come in half on the left but on the right I will half to cut it with a saw.
