Description for Uponor (Wirsbo) LF2501000

Uponor's lead-free brass transition fittings, valves and wall boxes carry the NSF us-pw-G marking for lead-free compliance to meet state lead-free legislation, and exceed the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act. Now you can combine lead-free brass fittings with Uponor's PEX tubing, EP offering and ProPEX Out-of-the-Wall Support System for a complete lead-free solution from the inlet to the faucet. The new lead-free offerings feature Uponor's unique ProPEX fitting system for strong, durable connections without the need for torches, glues, solvents or gauges.

Wirsbo 1" Copper Valved Manifolds (type L copper) feature 1/2" ProPEX outlets. A soldered valve connection allows for simple and easy isolation of individual loops. Sections can sweat together to extend the number of outlets using a standard 1" copper coupling. Do not exceed accepted flow rates for 1" nominal copper. Both 1" ends are copper pipe size and will require a copper end cap, coupling or transition fitting to make the proper system connection.

Note: ProPEX Tool is required ProPEX Rings must be purchased separately.

        I purchased two of these manifolds - one for hot and one for cold. I mounted them on a 3x4 foot piece of 3/4 inch plywoood and secured it (2x4s from floor joists) in a central location in the basement. My friend, a plumber who owns the Upnor tools, did a great job running the Pex from the manifolds to each bathroom, the laundry and kitchen so each area can be isolated and shut off if needed. Every house should be set-up like this.

        difficult to install tubing

        Great manifold, but make sure you get the right termination rings. The standard rings don't fit, and PexSupply doesn't get back with you, if you have a question

                          Saved a bunch of labor vs. assembling manifolds with solder on ball valves.

                                Used for potable water in small home. Stepped down to 3/4" in and 1/2" out for drop legs for draining. When soldering, use 1-2" strips of wet towel around and before the 1st and 2nd valves, minimum. Open valves and solder casefully in level position (not up as solder could drip into valve). Down position, too much heat rising toward valves. Point torch away from valves. Preperation is the key to prevent valve damage. Wish they offered a 3/4" already soldered. Soldering this close to valves can be a little intimidating.

                                      Great manifold , worked well nice clean look when finished, only issue stubs on the ends a little short for soldering 90' Elbows, but made it work!

                                            If you compare what individual components would cost for a comparable manifold this unit is very cost effective. Add in the labor savings and it is a no brainer.

                                                        I used this product to re-plumb my basement. It is a convenient way to isolate/control water lines to a large number of sinks, toilets, faucets, etc. Seems like very solid, quality construction. Expensive but saves a lot of time on installation and maintenance.

                                                                        The coupling and elbow you mentioned will connect to the LF2500400 manifold, but not to the LF4807575 ball valve. The ball valves are designed to connect directly to 3/4" copper pipe or street adapters. Since we do not carry any single fittings that could accomplish what you are trying to do, we would recommend using a piece of 3/4" copper pipe between each valve and the fittings you mentioned.

                                                                        The pipe sizes you mentioned sound reasonable to us. Toilets and sinks generally have much lower flow demands than fixtures such as baths, showers, and washing machines.

A wooden base board was secured with concrete screws and the manifold was mounted to the board using copper brackets. It is important to avoid dis-similar metals to reduce potential electrolysis/deterioration of the manifold. It would also be possible to hang this by joist hangers from floor joists. Using plastic hangers also prevents damage. The weak point of that method is that once the manifold is fully connected, all PEX piping must be also well supported to prevent rotation by gravity, although some support is called for in any case.

What I used was electrical conduit straps to fasten mine to the wall. Make sure if you do this that you put some sort of "cushion" between the strap and the manifold so it will not wear through the copper. Good luck!

This tubing requires an expander tool (I bought the Milwaukee) with ProPex reinforcing rings. I believe the PEX A tubing and ProPex fittings are the wrong diameter for the crimp ring connection system. There is a great tutorial video on PexSupply home page at the bottom.

However, I would wrap a water soaked rag around the valve & its solder joint closest to the joint you are soldering ... that will keep where the valve is soldered to the manifold from getting too hot.

The valve packing is a high temperature material and not subject to melting at normal soldering temperatures. It is always good practice to use a damp rag wrapped around the valve assembly or 1" header pipe just downstream of the soldering point or use a heat blocking paste as a "heat dam" when soldering near potentially heat sensitive components.

I suppose you are supposed to control the heat on the valve body and since solder has such a low melting point, I bet the teflon seals are designed to be able to withstand that low temperature.

The PEX installation guide seemed to recommend 3/8" for most faucets (the main exception being shower/baths), so would it be better to reduce those lines or just stick with 1/2" for everything?

If you ran 3/8" all the way, you would suffer more pressure loss as there would be more friction in the smaller tubing.

I put all the bathrooms off just one of the 1/2" manifold valves. From this 1/2" valve I went up to 3/4" for the long run, and then went back to 1/2" where it broke off the 3/4" bathroom header to each bathroom. I only run about 50 - 60 psi supply pressure behind a regulating valve, and didn't notice any flow drop since the PEX sweeps versus hard 90's in rigid piping.
                                                                        My friend runs 100 psi supply with no regulating valve, and was worried about flow drop through the 1/2" manifold valves versus how it was run in 3/4" to 1/2" in the rigid copper. He even got buckets and timed how long it took to fill it with his old rigid piping versus after the PEX was put in. It was better for his main bath that was run in 3/4" PEX where it goes through the floor just like in copper. We installed his laundry room in all 1/2" PEX at about 40' from one of the 1/2" manifold valves to the utility sink, and he lost like 5 seconds on the fill time. Original copper line to the laundry was about 30' of 3/4" copper and the balance 1/2".
                                                                        You don't have to stay with 1/2" off the manifold just because it's 1/2". You can always go to 3/4" and then back to 1/2" in PEX to maintain or gain flow. If you go 1/2" all the way you may or may not notice a difference, but the bucket test showed on a long run it lost some flow rate. Good Luck!

On some models, one side is female, one male, but I imagine on the 10 outlet units most all are male on both sides. The way that these sorts of manifold should be installed is with the feed coming from the center for min drop and most even flow. So, if you are just using one manifold, you would feed water from both open ends. Or you can use 2 smaller manifolds and use a TEE in the middle and feed that way.
                                                                        BTW, this is by far the best method to install PEX. As long as you have enough flow and pressure to the manifold, no drop at any tap

The 1" copper portion of the manifold is open at each end, so you need to attach the supply at one end and, on the other end, a cap (to end it), coupling (to another manifold) or connections for a hose bib (to drain the entire line).

I will complete the kitchen and a bathroom in phase 1. That works out to be half of the ports. Can I start out with a 6-port manifold for cold and a 4-port manifold for hot (just big enough to support phase 1) and when I am ready to continue add another 6-port and 4-port for phase 2?
