I'm really not sure about the warranty, I never have gotten a definitive answer from Milwaukee on that yet, but I assume it will to be safe. If you break it while doing so, it definitely will though. I got mine apart with no real problems, the sealant they use is tough to be sure, but if you use the right correct wrenches it comes out with a bit of ummmph. I assume if you trash the JBJ while removing the valve you're history on the warranty as well.
You could hook the manifold up right off the bubble counter, but the problem there, as far as the JBJ manifold goes is that it has a 1/8" NPT nipple, you'd need to replace it with a hose fitting, barb or compression.
I've got my JBJ so rigged up now, any warranty issue is out the door. I have it plumbed to three tanks with three needle valves using nipples, tees and needle valves. I'm in the process of arguing my wife into controllers for each line, but I have to wait for her to buy a new purse or something each time to get the moral high ground.
