I'm in the process of building my first UDS. I have it all together. Time for paint. I'm wondering if anyone supports their vertical air intake and if so, what type of bracket do you use? I have for 3/4 inch air intakes, 2 with caps and 2 with ball valves. The ball valves are vertical and I'm concerned they need to be supported. And advice would be appreciated.

Have you considered conduit hangers? May need to be shimmed but should work.

I don't have verticals on mine but I think most people just use U bolts
