At the bottom of each I will have a 5" T going down to a ball valve drain. So there will be 4 drain valves and finally the craftsman filter at the end.
Galvanized pipe does not cool as well as copper - but should still give you enough to condensate the water on your down runs
btw you have to sweat/solder copper pipe together I've never seen any pipe that had threads.
Make sure you use a ball valve from the compressor to the flex hose that hooks into this system. If you ever get a blowout you want to be able to cap it off!
