16 Port PEX Manifold with Valves

$240.56 /each

Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

The Apollo manifold system will save you time and money by allowing you to make longer, continuous runs of PEX pipe with fewer connections. Each manifold is bolted to a galvanized back plate for easy mounting to any structure. The cover plate is constructed of 1/4 in. ABS plastic, and includes red and blue labels indicating the destination fixture. Each manifold consists of two inlet ports that supply the dual chambers. Typically, one inlet is used for hot water supply, and the other inlet is used for cold water supply. However, both inlets may be used for either hot or cold water. The inlets are not temperature specific.

  • Two 3/4 in. inlets with 1/2 in. outlets
  • Dual chamber
  • Brass valves included
  • Fewer fittings needed

Answer: 
Thank you for posting the question. I wasn't sure of the answer, so I went into the utility closet and looked at it. There are two sets of four valves that make up the hot and cold sides. It appears that each of the sets of four are threaded at both ends, and are joined together by a F-F fitting. There is a cap at the opposite end and this would appear to be threaded so that you could add additional sets Read More
Thank you for posting the question. I wasn't sure of the answer, so I went into the utility closet and looked at it. There are two sets of four valves that make up the hot and cold sides. It appears that each of the sets of four are threaded at both ends, and are joined together by a F-F fitting. There is a cap at the opposite end and this would appear to be threaded so that you could add additional sets of four valves, presumably with additional purpose made female to female fittings, or with piping. I do not know, however, if the fittings are available.
But here's the thing. Apparently while I wasn't looking, the utility closet has became the catch all for the brooms, mops, vacuum cleaner, buckets, et cetera, and whenever one of those items is used, the others get shoved up against the piping, stressing the fittings in the manifold. I now have a small leak on one of the hot side fittings where the broom handle has been banged into the manifold daily for the past 3 or 4 years.
This is NOT a knock against the manifold. Water piping is simply not made to be bashed into with a broom handle every single day and I would not expect any plumbing to withstand such treatment. The point is, the connections are fragile. Plan your installation carefully. Make sure that all the pipes lead into and away from the manifold co-linear with the fittings so that there are no side stresses on them, and don't let family members turn the utility closet into a storage room or store things so they are bashing against the piping every day.

Answer: 
It actually shouldn't matter. Shark Bite and Wirsbo are both brand names for PEX, and there are others. The main thing is to decide which connecting system you want to use because the tools you need for making the connections are different. I spent quite a bit of time researching all of the PEX systems before I decided. Here's the executive summary:

It actually shouldn't matter. Shark Bite and Wirsbo are both brand names for PEX, and there are others. The main thing is to decide which connecting system you want to use because the tools you need for making the connections are different. I spent quite a bit of time researching all of the PEX systems before I decided. Here's the executive summary:
The Wirsbo system uses short lengths of PEX and an expensive (although you can rent it) tube expanding machine to stretch them over the tubing. Then you quickly connect the tube to your fitting and force the stretched tube over the end. The tool is expensive, but the fittings are almost free because you just use lengths of scrap tubing to make the connections.
There are two other systems, clamp rings and crimp rings:
Clamp rings use a hand held pliers device to lock down mechanical clamps that are like hose clamps. The clamp rings have locking teeth that engage when you have properly closed the connection. They give a satisfying "click" to let you know that you have a secure fitting. Each size of pex pipe uses a different size clamp ring, but you only need one tool to clamp down the rings. I chose this system because the rings are "go/no-go". They either clamp down properly and you have a perfect joint, or they won't clamp up and you know that you need to redo it.
The other system uses "crimp rings". The crimp rings are cheaper than the clamps, but you need a special tool for each size of pipe that you will use. Also, you have to take care to crimp the rings properly. I am told that you quickly develop a "feel" for whether or not you have made a good connection, but I didn't trust my judgment.
Although the clamps were a few cents more expensive than the crimp rings, I felt I more than made up the difference because I didn't need to buy and carry multiple crimping tools. Also, in use I felt really confident that I had correctly connected my piping and several years later, I still think I made the right choice. I rejected the expansion tube system because the battery operated tool was going to cost me several hundred dollars whereas I only spent about 20 on the clamp tool. Read Less

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best One Out There Versatile but plastic construction appears potentially a bit weak. I have only energized 2 stations of 16, but so far, so good. Very easy to attach PEX, and the valves all are water tight so far. In partial operation x 1 mo so far during a major remodel. A bit pricey for the construction but best option out there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Purchase This unit made it very easy to remodel and update our water lines. Good bye PVC. We would recommend it to anyone remodeling or even on a new build. March 10, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by This product is made of cheap plastic and we couldn't get it to stop leaking Upon installation of this product and putting water on the system, 4 out of the 16 valve connections were leaking and we couldn't get them to stop. We didn't want to tighten the connections more for fear of breaking the cheap plastic. We ended up removing the manifold and making our own system out of the all-copper manifolds that are available. I would avoid purchasing this product. March 28, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not built to last I returned this item because I did not fill like it would last October 29, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Complete Kit, Well Made, Easy to Install Plumbing has always been my least favorite of the tasks in a remodeling project, but so far, I am having fun. This well made manifold is well worth the money and has made the plumbing project easy and relatively fun. Unfortunately my house is suffering from old, poorly installed, and now leaking copper piping. After years of believing that copper pipe is the only way to go, I find myself living in a place where apparently the water attacks copper. Who knew? I wonder what it is doing to my stomach? Anyway, I am in the process of slowly replacing all of the copper pipe with PEX, and with this manifold at the heart of the system, the job has been easy so far. I used Shark Bite "tees" to cut the manifold into the existing system in my utility closet, right at the water heater. I then began running "home runs" from the manifold to each plumbing fixture in the house. I started with the fixtures furthest from the manifold. As I complete each portion of the new runs, I am able to cut out the old copper pipe and cap off the old system using a couple of Shark Bite caps which I discovered can be easily removed and re-installed. This manifold and the Shark Bite caps allow me to do one or two fixtures at a time while only disrupting the water to the rest of the house for a couple of minutes. This means I have been able to work on the project for a few hours each weekend as time permits. I have not had to shut down the house and do the entire job in an exhausting marathon. I am slowly and carefully working back toward the meter, cutting out the old copper and taking it in for recycling as I go. My only frustration with this manifold was that the product description was a bit sparse. It does comes complete with adapters to connect to 3/4 Pex supply lines. There are, as expected, 16 stop-cocks, and there are also four caps that can be used to cap off unused ports. The package included a couple of brass bushings and some O-rings. There was no obvious place to install the bushings or O-rings and since everything is working fine and there are no leaks, I cannot fathom their purpose. It would have been nice if the manufacturer had included a description of the included parts and their purpose, although mostly this is obvious. I will end up using all 16 ports when the project is done, so I installed all of the stop-cocks and then wrapped each unused one with plastic wrap and a couple of turns of electrical tape to keep them free of debris while work is pending. I don't know if this is necessary, but it may be another two years before I completely finish the project, so I thought this would be safer. The individual stop-cocks can be connected to the manifold either before, or after you connect them to the home run lines. This is nice for me because I will need to relocate my manifold when I complete the last phase of my project. The last phase will be the replacement and relocation of the hot water heater in a new utility room and running a new main supply line back to the inlet and main shut-off. To facilitate this, I added an extra ten feet of PEX to each home run. It will be easy to shorten this up once I relocate the manifold. I am looking forward to a neat, clean and well labeled plumbing system once all is done. April 17, 2012
