    1. Either those were meant as future lines, or the plumber simply didn't have any 90's left that day, more than likely they were meant to be used in the future.

    2. Yes, there are better valves to replace those older stop and waste valves. Google ball valves. Ball valves are full flow, and theres nothing inside them to go bad in the future.

        Air hammer chambers would face up not down. Unless they were meant to be sediment traps Aaron is on the right track.
