Description for Viega 38243

Please Note:

  • Supply adapters must be purchased separately and are required to install this product.
  • Mounting straps are optional and are sold separately.
  • The 10-year warranty only applies if this MANABLOC is installed with all Viega products.
  • 53601: MANABLOC Supply End Cap does not come included and must be purchased separately.


Bronze PEX Press Manablocs provide a home-run distribution manifold for the plumbing system. These Manablocs utilize either 3/8" or 1/2" distribution lines. Each Manabloc comes factory pre-assembled with color coded hot and cold ports. All Bronze PEX Press Manablocs include Press connections, drill templates, instruction guide, faceplate and port labels.

**Requires PEX Press Tool

**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.

Great Manifold

By Michael

from Oil City, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1/2"", 24 Port PEX Press MANABLOC (9 hot, 15 cold):

This manifold is used to update a plumbing system in a 1900 two story house. It is replacing badly oxidized copper pipes without any zone control. The Manablock is connected to rough in plumbing as well as completed circuits. Install instructions were accurate and easy to follow. Installation of the inital Manablock only took twenty minutes, plus five minutes per line.

The only negative I would say about this evolution is that the supplied Viega Supply end cap had a defective brass ring. (The mill did not cut the threads). Pex Supply is making good on it, but I should have inspected the shipment thoroughly when it arrived.

Comments about 1/2"", 14 Port PEX Press MANABLOC (6 hot, 8 cold):

I am putting in a new bathroom and decided it was time to re-do the water system. Did lots of research and am happy to say this is the best and easiest way to go. I have nothing bad to say as this was even easier than I thought. Highly recommend for ease of use and customer service.

Neophyte Pex homeowner

Verified Reviewer

Comments about 1/2"", 24 Port PEX Press MANABLOC (9 hot, 15 cold):

This manifold is great much improved over the old manibloc I just replaced. Installation of this product couldn't have been any simpler!

I had the old one down, out and the new one (all 21 lines) installed with no leaks in less than two hours!!! I was planning for this to take me the whole day!

I am a Pex convert! All local plumbers wanted to replace it with PVC, ball valves, and sharkbite connectors - for minimum of $1200.00.

All in all I saved over $800!!!!!

If I can do this anyone can!!!

    Q:

    which supply adapters do i need for the viega 38243?
    Asked on 9/20/2012 by damian from hannibal, MO

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Any MANABLOC supply adapters will work with that model. You should base your choice on the size (3/4" or 1") and connection method (crimp, PEX press, or threaded) that you prefer. Part 38243 is PEX press, so you'd probably want to use either part 96141 or 96161.

  • 1/2"", 14 Port PEX Press MANABLOC (6 hot, 8 cold)

    Q:

    How far should the manifold be from the hot water heater?
    Asked on 1/31/2012 by Yodintenn from Munford, TN

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The manufacturer recommends installing the MANABLOC between 1.5 and 8 feet from the water heater. The minimum distance (which extands to 3 feet if the MANABLOC is placed above the water heater) protects the unit form flue heat. The maximum recommended distance minimizes both heat loss and delivery time of hot water to fixtures.
