    Plumbing advice

    Hey everyone,
    Spring is here and I started a project. I moved all my equipment away from the pool. My question is how can I support this section:


    Looking for ideas
    Thanks!

    Concrete block with two wooden wedges on top. Slide the wedges across each other like you do when hanging a door, and mark them when they support the pipe. Screw them together and put them back in place.

    Wooden stakes with pipe hangers on them would work too.

    BTW, those elbows don't look pressure rated. They will probably work absolutely fine, but just so you are aware.

    I can not dig in that area because there is drain pipe directly under those pipes.
    All the fittings are pressure rated except the 45 you see in the picture. The ones on top of that decking are part of an aerator. I haven't found a pressure rated 45 yet. But that is not glued in yet.
    I'm concerned about vibration stressing the fittings on the pool.
    Would the block idea lessen vibration?

    Here is the equipment pad. Please excuse the mess. I'll be painting the primer and glue.
