PVC Manifold

Working on my new 200 DD build, and starting on the plumbing. The return, for now, will be a Mag 9.5, and this is the manifold I'm using. The manifold part for reactors and such is 1/2 inch, where the input/output is 1 inch. The outlets on the top and third output are 1/2 John Guest fittings.

Any issues with what you see? Good? Bad?

The design of the manifold is fine, but the may be a bit small for a 200, especially with 4 outlets draining flow off. If are going to ust that pump, I'd say that 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 pvc for the main line of the manifold and the return would be better.

I will probably only be running two reactors, maybe one at first. One will be for carbon and the other GFO.

If the Mag 9.5 isn't enough flow, I'm gonna replace with a bigger water blaster.
