This is only the first phase of my little project so things aren't done but the black pipe work was all done with imported fittings from suppyhouse and the pipe was lowes. The only drip I had was a 1/2 inch copper 90 I reused from the bottom of my toolbox.

I'd put a whistle on if I could figure out how... but maybe I'll do the pilot light on the upper and lower circulators like has been talked about here before. The other two already light up when they're on. ( insert disco ball smilie here) toothy
