I would want to check the 1/8 out of the reg as I have not used that specific one and some do use 1/4 . But then the main question/confusion may be the manifold idea. Lots of things that are the same as a "manifold" but we don't call them that. It is really just any set that lets you come in one place and go out at two or more places or directions.In house plumbing, there is often a manifold but all it really means is that they come in on a line and add as many tee fittings as they need to use. We can use a ready made machined brass manifold but it also works the same if we use some fitting like a tee. If we want to have two out, we use one tee or add a second and have three out.
Since I only wanted to feed two tanks with one reg and solenoid, I just did reg, solenoid to a tee and then ran to two needle valves side by side with bubble counters mounted on a board just below the two tanks. For most of us garden hoses make more sense as we use them more. So when we have two sprinklers on a hose by adding a tee or "Y", we've got a manifold!
The GLA is a manifold but with extras as the knobs out to the right are for adjusting the built in needle valves just below the barb fittings sticking up. Neat, small package but I'm not up on how well the needle valves are at making the small adjustments we like. Maybe somebody who has used them can pop in with their thinking on how easy they are to work?
From left to right, there is a fitting (nipple?) probably 1/8? the Tee going to close(short) nipple and elbow with two needle valves sticking out to the right. Two check valves sticking up with barb fittings to finish it off?
