Description for Viega NPTS-36303

This Convenient Viega MANABLOC Plumbing Package Includes the Following:



**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 18 Port Compression MANABLOC Package (NPT Supply):

I used this to replumb my three bedroom,two bath World War II era Cape Cod. It took me about 15 hours and cost 1/30th what a plumber quoted me to do exactly the same job! I'm a skilled tradesman in another field but I think any moderately handy homeowner could handle this job.

Plumbing DIY Made Easy

By Dan

Comments about 18 Port Compression MANABLOC Package (NPT Supply):

I used this Manabloc when I replaced all the old plumbing throughout our old house. My needs were minimal and I didn't have to go through any walls yet but PEX and the Manabloc made it very easy.

The most complicated part of the procedure was creating a proper mounting surface for the manifold. When you do this, make sure you have ample space above for your PEX to bend properly so extra pressure is not put on the supply inlets. If you have too much bend in your PEX, the pressure exerted on the inlets could possibly cause them to crack over time. The PEX 90-degree support would probably be a good thing to install here. Otherwise, the instructions were helpful and clear.

I also suggest not to substitute non-Shark Bite PEX adapters with this. I did this on one of the inlets and have yet to get a good seal. I'm going to order a Shark Bite adapter to replace the local-box-store-purchased adapter I initially used.

Great System! - better flow!

Comments about 14 Port Compression MANABLOC Package (NPT Supply):

I replaced the galvanized water pipe in my 100+ year old home with the Pex Manifold, running 1 set of 1/2" lines to each room (every bathroom has its own set, kitchen sink has its own set etc...)
This system has increased my water flow and hot water delivery times to an amazing degree.
My system is connected as thus:
Water from street to Ball shut off valve, then to 3/4" Pex adapter to Manabloc to water heater and back.

I have a little water hammer now due to the increased flow and need to install a hammer arrester.

Great product

Comments about 14 Port Compression MANABLOC Package (NPT Supply):

Easy to install, looks and works great. My plumber had never seen one and he likes it and will probably be a new customer.
My only request would be that the label that comes stuck to the unit be a user added label so it can be applied with correct orientation of the unit when installed (mine is upside down).

  • 14 Port Compression MANABLOC Package (NPT Supply)

    Q:

    On the compression style bloc it comes with 1/2 fittings but can you run both 1/2 and 3/8 off the same bloc and if so is there any other parts needed (Ferrell/sleeves, etc)
    Asked on 11/16/2015 by John from Tampa Bay, FL

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      1/2" and 3/8" compression cannot be interchanged on a Manabloc as the male threads on the bloc itself are different sizes. There are several combination Manablocs in 24, 30, and 36 port configurations available that may suit your application, however.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      1. Turn off the main water supply to the manifold.
      2. Connect a short piece of tubing to the lowest port on the cold side.
      3. Drain the cold water into a bucket.
      4. Repeat steps 2-3 for the hot side.

    Q:

    I have hand tightened the distribution lines on the manifold and just read the manual that says to use the manabloc wrench to tighten and not slip pliers. Do I have to buy a special wrench, which I don't see in the accessories? Can I use an adjustable wrench?

      I just used an adjustable wrench. Just don't over tighten and you will be ok.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      An adjustable wrench is fine. The Manabloc compression wrench (which is part 50631) would fit between ports more easily, but it is an optional accessory.

    Q:

    Is there a Manabloc system that will work with our existing 5/8 inch PEX tubing?
    Asked on 3/13/2014 by Duane

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Unfortunately there is not. There are no Manabloc adapters for 5/8" PEX (for either the supply or outlet ports), although 1/2" PEX has a 5/8" outside diameter.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Mike,
      To my knowledge there aren't any filters in the manabloc manifold. There are only separate chambers for the cold and hot water inputs which then are supplied to the number of output ports via a cutoff valve for each port. There isn't any maintenance to do on the manifold. I have a whole house water filtration system that filters the city water into my house. So I would recommend that you do the same or put some type of filtration before the manabloc manifold if you have any concerns about contamination or debris that can clog up the manifold. Hope this helps.
      Good Luck and God Bless,
      Doug

      I used 1/2" pex pipe on all the outlet ports of the manibloc. It worked
      very well. It is a simple compression connection with a metal stiffener
      inside the pex pipe. My customer is very satisfied.

      A:

      I am unfamiliar with the wirsbo pex pipe. I understand that some manufacturers of pex tubing have specific connectors for their tubing that are different from other brands of pex tubing. There may be adapters to connect the wirsbo tubing to a manifold not made by them. Good luck.
