Simple PVC probe manifold for return

Pretty basic compared to other stuff on here, but thought I'd share since it's such an inexpensive, easy-to-do project that has everything you need right at Lowes/HD (except for one peice).

Probe manifold:

  • 1/2" PVC pipe (I only used about 1' for this)
  • 2x 1/2" thread x slip 90 elbow
  • 2x 1/2" hose barb x thread coupling*
  • [# of probes]x 1/2" thread x slip x slip T
  • [# of probes]x

You'll also need teflon tape and PVC cement. I also finished it off with some glossy black krylon spraypaint just because.

*I could only find brass fittings at Lowes. Ordered Nylon replacements online.
