2 water heater tanks parallel question

I hate to break it to you but there is no way that will end up having both tanks fire closely together in time. One will end up drawing down first while the other sets there looking stupid. Manufactures make a manifold for a parallel system but even those with one small flaw cause uneven use of the two tanks. The last in first out is totally not dependent on the piping materials.

i saw this at home depot but the price is too much.. anything cheaper?

Suspend some plumbers tape or 1x material from the joists above to takesome stress of the pipe. Should only run a few bucks
