New to PexSupply.com are Viega’s Pex Press Plastic Manifolds. These plastic manifolds are economical and save time with the help of the Smart Connect feature. They are NSF-61 approved for use in potable water systems, and come with outlets numbering from 2 to 8. Models are available in Flow Through and Close End varieties. The PLS polysulfone plastic resists aggressive water and corrosion. These lead free manifolds when combined with Viega’s existing PEX Press fittings can form a complete system solution. This system is designed to provide a 40% increased flow rate compared to the U.S. standard PEX insert fitting.
Smart Connect, which is a unique feature only offered by Viega, allows installers to easily identify unpressed connections. The Smart Connect feature allows reliable connections in up to seven seconds, and eliminates the need for solder, flux, flame and fire watches. It can also make secure connections under the flow of water.
