Product Description

The MANABLOC is a unique plumbing water distribution system that can provide homeowners with dramatic water and energy savings. Viega's patented MANABLOC manifold delivers hot water up to four times faster than conventional plumbing systems. Each fixture in a house (e.g. shower, kitchen sink, toilet) is fed by its own flexible water distribution line, made of ViegaPEX tubing, that runs directly from a central manifold system, called the Viega MANABLOC. By providing each fixture with its own distribution line (blue indicates cold water and red indicates hot water), the line can be made just the right size based on the amount of water needed. For example, shower heads may need more water than low-flow fixtures such as toilets or dish washers, so larger lines can be run from the MANABLOC to the shower. This results in faster hot water and reduced waste.

I installed one of these in my house and one in my sons. The best application is to set the Maniblock near the water heater in the center of the house. With 1/2" PEX it is a very short waiting time for hot water to reach any faucet in the house. There is no temperature variation in temperature when water is used in another part of the house. PEX fittings are very easy to install and very reliable when properly installed. I've never had one to leak. Recirculating systems are expensive to install and operate but the way to go if you have a lot of money. I absolutely love the maniblock. The only drawback to PEX piping is that I've heard mice will chew on it if installed where they can get to it.

Verified Purchase
Product arrived on time and in perfect condition. All the necessary connections, etc. were included. Instructions were not terrible but not as helpful as I had hoped with designing the plumbing system.

This is the stupidest plumbing product I have seen for years. Anyone considering this contraption must not have logical powers and just listens to their plumber. The sales pitch is so there is adequate water supply at each device. Good design would accomplish that result and much, much more. The bad is each hot water pipe cools down from this device and you must waste and wait for hot water to completely fill the supply line, several minutes and gallons of water. The best design uses a recirc system for the hot water; either gravity or pumped. A gravity system requires the hot water supply to run under a slab or crawlspace with the return in the floor and supply in the attic. Each drop to a fixture should be from the floor up to the sink, etc. with the return line at the end of the closest fixture. If the gravity system is not properly designed a pump is necessary. This pump may operate continuously, not using much power, or you may wish to install a timer set for daytime operation.
