Hired a company to replace a water main shutoff. This work doesn’t look right to me but I’m a homeowner not a plumber. Opinions on this work?

Yes. But my water pressure seems low and I don’t understand why there are so many pipe pieces joined together

Terrible orientation. Valve should have been mounted so it can close easily.
My opinion: Low quality but it should work fine if the valve shuts.
We only use ProPress and no flux required. You are likely to have flux taste in the water for a bit of time, but it will eventually fade.
