Description for Viega 41063

ZERO LEAD MINIBLOC - BRASS PEX CRIMP

Brass PEX Crimp MINIBLOCs provide a zone manifold for the plumbing system. These MINIBLOCs use 1/2" distribution lines. All Brass PEX Crimp MINIBLOCs include port Crimp 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:


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.

Comments about 1/2"", 8 Port Zero Lead PollyAlloy PEX Crimp MINIBLOC:

I decided to go with two Miniblocs insteaed of the one Manibloc. They were extremely easy to install and have worked flawlessly.

The only odd thing is that some of the names on the labels use terms that are odd (or not used in the area that I live). There are plenty of blank ones though so that you can write in your own descriptions.

              I purchased this product to replace/ repair a leak in 2003 MiniBloc which was designed for 15mm. My problem is the ports are actually threaded for 3/4" but the discription says 1/2" due to the pex tubing it's designed to be used with. This s not made clear in the description and I had purchased after market connectors to screw on to the ports. So I had to reorder in 3/4" instead of 1/2" wasting a week and aggravation. I also don't under stand why MiniBlock wont just add (or at minimum offer for sale) a screw on adaptor to the port that does not need a pex connector ...... like a garden hose connector. I guess they want the product to have less diversity and or flexiblity.

                    Mounted 2 of these about 2.5 feet from my water heater. Overall install went well with a crimp set up. Ended up using a good chunk of teflon tape to seal all caps. Intake and outake has only a small plastic clip to stop them from turning, one clip broke and we are now unable to get the cap off. Ended up having to order a new one since I didn't know if it came broken or we broke it. But in that case it kept spinning and you are unable to remove what you screw into it if it's tight.

                    These minibloc's are great, they allow the precise control you wish you had for phased project completion and to shutoff unused or seasonal plumbing branches. They bring everything together very nicely, looks neat and professional. They only cost a little more since they replace several "manifold T's. I have installed a lot of these and have NEVER had a leak or a callback.

                        They come with the 1/2" outlet adapters but not the supply adapters. If
                        this is a pass through you will supply adapters for both ends. If this
                        is the end of a line you will need one supply adapter and a supply end cap.

                        This is for just one type, either hot or cold. They give you little colored discs to put on the valves (blue for cold, red for hot). But you can't do both, it's not internally partitioned like some of the bigger manifolds.

                        The bloc only has an input for hot or cold but not both. You will have to
                        purchase two blocs and put them end to end if you want to have both hot and
                        cold.

                        A:

                        It can serve one or the other. It cannot serve both. This manifold has a
                        single chamber. You would have to purchase a larger one that has dual
                        chambers or purchase multiples of this one. Many people use these in a
                        branch system where the water is not all home ran. It defeats the purpose
                        of home running, but can be more efficient for hot water and the amount of
                        pex you have to purchase.

                        No. It is an either or situation as there is only one common channel. You
                        can purchase a 2nd manifold and butt them together end to end. Use one for
                        hot water and the other for cold.

                        A:

                        I'm pretty sure that mini blocks supply only 1/2 inch loads. But they have a 3/4 inch feed-through port (which does not have a built-in valve). So you would use the block for the 1/2 inch loads. If you want a 3/4 line for the shower then branch the 3/4 line off before the miniblock, or feed the 3/4 line using the outlet port of the miniblock. (make sure that you have the adapter to connect to this outlet port.
                        In my experience, if you have good water pressure, and if you run a dedicated line to the shower, a 1/2 line gives you pretty good flow. And with the 1/2 line, it won't take long for the water to get hit when you start the shower.

                        You can use 3/4" adapters on the two supply ports on each MINIBLOC. Depending on how you pipe the rest of the system, this could allow you to use one of these ports to supply 3/4" hot and cold lines to your shower using a hot and cold MINIBLOC.

                        A:

                        I recently purchased a 3/8 inch, 4 port minibloc. It approx. 9-1/2 inches
                        in length by 2-3/4 inch in width by 4 inches in height.
                        The port size will not really affect the overall dimensions. The port
                        number will affect the length. I would guess that a 10 port minibloc would
                        have a length of 20-21 inches.

                        Yes. The unit just snaps into the mounting bracket.

                        I installed an 8 port and a 10 port. They both came with a mounting bracket. My recollection is that you screw the mounting bracket to the wall (or whatever) and the manifold then clicks in to the mounting bracket. I had purchased some metal strips that the website implied I would need. Never used them... Have no idea what they are for.
                        Have been happy with these miniblocks and will use them again

                        Yes, the manablock came with a mounting bracket. You screw the mounting
                        backet(s) down, and then snap the manifold into the brackets. Very sturdy.

                        Yes, a pair of mounting brackets are included with MINIBLOC units. The brackets must be screwed or nailed to the wall, and the manifold snaps to the brackets.
