Benefits of Home-Run Plumbing
Home-run piping systems are a popular option in PEX plumbing. Home-run systems typically include single hot and cold manifolds, from which a dedicated line runs to each fixture. This configuration decreases wait times for hot and cold water and provides more balanced water pressure when multiple fixtures operate simultaneously. No fittings are needed between the manifolds and fixtures in most PEX home-runs systems. This decreases the likelihood for leaks, minimizes flow reduction, and speeds up installation. Viega’s MANABLOC manifolds combine hot and cold home-run manifolds into a single physical unit. Its valves provide centralized shut-offs for each line, and the included labels can help mark the lines. Find the MANABLOC and more PEX plumbing products on PexSupply.com.
