I have two questions:

Why use a ball valve over a sprinkler?

And why did you put the ball valve in the middle of your chamber?

Also to be safe you should put the ball valve someware with two layers of pvc, like the coupler or the cap.

Interesting. It's difficult to understand your diagram, well at least for me.

First thing is why do you have 2 couplers on the outside of your chamber?

Also, how is that ball valve attached? and where does it lead to... a barrel?

Well I won't ask anymore questions, just post some pictures of your fittings and parts and stuff. We can help you out a bit more.
