A: With this manifold, you would need to use a crimp or pinch clamp to secure the PEX pipe. However, we do have a 36-port PEX-A manifold available through homedepot.com: 36-Port PEX-A Manifold with 1/2 in. Brass Ball Valves, Model #EPXMANI36, Internet #315335728, Store SKU #1005954307.
A: The Apollo 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, & 36 port manifolds all have an equal number of hot and cold ports on either side of the manifold. Since these manifolds feature a dual silo, one for incoming hot and one for incoming cold water, you cannot turn one of your hot ports into a cold one, and vice versa. However, if you unscrew the cap at the bottom of the cold port, you can connect a 3/4 in PEX Female Adapter, followed by a small piece of PEX pipe, and then a copper or poly alloy "branch and tee" manifold. Those part numbers are APXCM4PTO, APXCM6PTO, PXPA2PTC, PXPA4PTC, PXPA2PTO, PXPA4PTO, and PXPA6PTO.
A: If you need more than 18 per side as I do, you can actually use two manifolds one for cold and one for hot, sized accordingly 24 hot 30 cold. just add a ?T? going from supply to both sides of each manifold from street or water heater
A: No. Each side, Hot and Cold, are independent of the other.
A: 18 per side. 18 hot and 18 cold.
A: This manifold has an equal number of cold and hot ports. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to us directly at 1.888.229.2874 and we will gladly assist you with your project.
A: Yes, PEX pinch/cinch clamps are actually the preferred method for making the manifold connections because they are easier to install in smaller spaces given the small footprint of the tool.
