Great Things Come in "MINI" Packages

The MANABLOC system, manufactured by Viega, is an all-in-one unit that handles both hot and cold water lines. However, if you find yourself needing more fixture ports than an existing MANABLOC provides, you will want to get your hands on a MINIBLOC. Contrary to what you may be thinking, a MINIBLOC is not a tiny version of the MANABLOC. Instead, it is used as an addition to an existing MANABLOC. All you'll need to do is tee off the main supply line(s) and add one or two MINIBLOCs, as needed. Just remember that MINIBLOCs, unlike MANABLOCs, do not support both hot and cold water lines. If you need additional ports for those lines, you will need to add a MINIBLOC for both. If you only need additional ports for one temperature, then one MINIBLOC will suffice.

You can find both MINIBLOCs and MANABLOCs at
