Description for Viega 36043

ZERO LEAD MINIBLOC-COMPRESSION

Compression MINIBLOC's provide a zone manifold for the plumbing system. These MINIBLOC's use either 3/8" or 1/2" distribution ports. All Compression MINIBLOCs include port compression connections, drill templates, instruction guide, faceplate and port labels.

The SKU number represents all blue valves. Red valve caps are included to designate hot water lines.

Please Note:

  • Supply Adapters must be purchased separately and are required to install this product.
  • 53601: MANABLOC Supply End Cap does not come included and must be purchased separately.
  • The MANABLOC Wrench allows you to easily tighten the lock-in nuts for this MANABLOC with precision. This item must be purchased separately, as it is not required but highly recommended..

Image may not represent actual product.

**Important**
  • The MANABLOC plumbing system carries a maximum pressure/temperature rating of 100 psi @ 180°F. Excessive pressure to the MANABLOC will cause leaks.
  • Do not allow chemicals such as PVC glues or solder flux to come into contact with the MANABLOC. They will compromise the integrity of the MANABLOC and cause leaks.
  • Please consult the MANABLOC install instructions for a more comprehensive list of chemical materials that will cause harm to the MANABLOC plumbing system.

              Worked great for my needs although I wish they still made the Manabloc with four ports on each side.

                    The product arrived promptly and in great shape. Instructions were pretty good except it didn't say the mounting tabs shouldn't be fastened to the wall too tightly or they won't flex enough to let the unit be mounted. A call to tech support at supply house got me Viega's #. They quickly resolved the issue and my bloc was easily mounted. Overall an A++ experience.

                                Once I downloaded the manual this manifold was quick and easy to install. My only recommendation is that they ship these with the manual. otherwise these are slick little manifolds! They come with extra compression hardware in case you make a mistake. But, I would still recommend ordering extra as the components are less than dollar each.

                                                  I already have a "Manabloc" in my home for the hot and cold water, which is connected after the water softener. I purchased the "Minibloc" to connect all of my outside faucets infront of the water softener, so I would not be wasting money & soft water in the yard. It will also give me shut offs for all of faucets. BUT, They should tell you that you HAVE to purchase THEIR inlet connection. I went to the local plumbing supply houses and no one carries the proper inlet connector. I had to come back and purchase it here, pay another $10 shippiing and wait another week before starting my project. THEY SHOULD SELL IT AS A KIT.

                                                  Product installed quickly and was well built. Be careful not to overtighten the end cap as I did. I torqued it too much and now cant easily get it off. Otherwise worked as advertised.

                                                    Do all ports use standard MPT threads? I tried to fit a 1" copper female adapter on the input and it didn't want to thread on easily.

                                                      All of the ports use straight threads, you should stick with the viega supply and port adapters so you do not damage the threads.

                                                      Main line should be 3/4".  You can buy adapter from Pex 1/2 to 3/4.

                                                      You have to buy a seperate piece for the input line. I don't think it's included. They come in different sizes i believe.

                                                      You can use either 3/4" or 1" input lines. If you use 3/4" lines, you will probably want to use part 46646 unless you have a PEX crimp or PEX press tool.

                                                      This MINIBLOC (part 36033) only has three distribution ports. Viega does not make any 5-port MINIBLOCS. They likely use them as the stock photos to avoid confusion with actual items. Part 36043 is the 4-port 1/2" compression MINIBLOC and 36063 is the 6-port version. They each have an input and an output, and you are correct that they each individual unit must be used exclusively for either hot or cold.

                                                    I want to install an outdoor frost-free spigot through my basement wall. I am thinking of running one hot port and one cold port from my MANABLOC into each of the supply ends of a 3-port MINIBLOC. I want to cap off two of the MINIBLOC ports and run the third MINIBLOC port into my frost free spigot. This will theoretically give me the ability to 'set' the temperature of the water coming from the outdoor spigot and allow me to have cold, warm, or hot water at that spigot by adjusting the hot and cold MANABLOC valves. What do you think about the possibility of this working?

                                                      Make sure you use one way check valves in line so the hot doesn't back feed into the cold.

                                                      I am also curious as to how well it worked out. If you haven't done it yet I would recommend a check valve in each line to ensure that you don't feed hot water into the cold side of your main manifold and vice-versa.

                                                      So you want to connect 1 cold supply pipe to the supply port and then connect 1 hot supply pipe to the opposite side's supply port, then cap all other ports other than the 1 connected to your exterior spickot. I am curious if you actually followed through on your experiment. Because it seems that it would be a real pain in the you know what if you had to visit your "manabloc" manifold every single time you wanted to switch the water temperature from hot to cold or warm since that would be the only way to control the amount of hot and cold water that is flowing into the "minibloc" manifold. My suggestion would be to install a faucet (perhaps an "old style" laundry faucet or other) instead of a spickot that is connected to your main "manabloc" or just install 2 spickots right next to each other. That way you could control the water temperature very conveniently at the location you are using it.
