Manifold Orientation

Kungur Member Posts: 49
In all the pics I see of manifolds they are installed with the pex connections on the bottom. aS I get ready to do the 1st. floor from the basement the pex will be coming down from above. So can manifold be installed with the connection on top? I want to make as neat an install as possible.

    It depends....

    Some manifolds come with a flow meter, and if installed upside down, may not read accurately. If that is not a problem, then you have no concerns.

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.
