MANABLOC Shopping Tip

The MANBLOC system, manufactured by Viega, provides a “home-run” distribution manifold for a plumbing system. This means that it’s an all-in-one unit that handles both cold and hot water lines. MANABLOCs are even designed with blue ports for hot ports and red ones for cold ports.

When buying a MANABLOC, keep in mind the type of fixture you want it to work with. For low-flow fixtures, such as sink faucets, you may want to go with a MANABLOC with 3/8” distribution ports. For fixtures with a higher flow, such as a tub faucet, choose a MANABLOC with ½” distribution ports.
