THE MANABLOC PLUMBING SYSTEM
We take pride in our plumbing, it should not just work good, it should be installed with superior workmanship.
Less Potential for Leaks - The weakest link in any plumbing system are the fittings. Most conventional plumbing systems use rigid copper which requires many fittings. The Manabloc system uses flexible PEX tubing that connects from the distribution panel directly to the fixture with a crimp fitting. It greatly minimizes the need for fittings, and the potential for leaks. (Crimp tools required for installation.)
Freeze Break Resistant- PEX will stretch slightly to accommodate the expansion of frozen water, then return to its original size when the water thaws. Although freeze-break resistant, no pipe is freeze-break proof under all circumstances.
Easy to Service - The Manabloc system features individually labeled shut-off valves for each distribution line.The Manabloc system is very similar in concept to the electrical system in homes.The water supply enters the Manabloc distribution panel and flows through shut-off valves to the plumbing fixtures. Electricity enters the electrical distribution panel and flows through breakers to the electrical fixtures. Now, both the electrical and plumbing systems can feature an easy to access panel to shut off power or water in case of an emergency.
Quiet Operation - The flexible PEX tubing used with the Manabloc system operates quietly. In copper systems, you often hear noise as the water flows through the pipes. Flexible PEX tubing virtually eliminates water noise.
Cost - Even though the Vanguard Manabloc system features all these benefits over copper systems, the Manabloc system can usually be installed for the same cost as a copper system (or less)!
