The first in the industry, the Viega MANABLOC parallel water distribution system incorporates a system of PEX distribution lines dedicated to individual plumbing fixtures. Because dedicated tubing lines are plumbed specifically to each individual faucet, wait time for hot water is significantly decreased.
Viega MANABLOCs arrive fully assembled and factory tested. They include individual quarter-turn port shutoff valves, which allow the end user complete control over the entire plumbing system from one central location. Fewer behind-the-wall fittings make it easy to install and less likely to leak. Flexible ViegaPEX tubing in 3/8" and 1/2" ensures optimal efficiency required to supply fixtures.
The choice to install 3/8" PEX tubing for low-demand fixtures instead of 1/2" will determine how much water an end user can save with a Viega MANABLOC system. In a length of 50 feet of PEX tubing, 3/8" PEX stores only .32 gallons of water (as opposed to 1/2" PEX tubing’s .46 gallons). Storing less volume of water means less time is required to purge the line and deliver hot water twice as fast as with a 1/2" PEX line.
Viega MANABLOC is a complete plumbing system that is easy to install and provides fast hot water delivery by decreasing energy costs and reducing water waste.
