Pex Manifolds


I'm having a hard time finding a pex manifold with 1" pex input x 3/4" outputs.
Everything seems to be 1/2" out only.
Does anyone have knowledge of a manifold w/ 3/4" outs?
This will be used in a hydronic heating application, but no mixing / tempering needed in the manifold - copper would be fine.

Thank you.

I never saw one with 3/4 outlets. The systems I've seen have such a low flow rate, I cant imagine needing bigger than 1/2" outs. As far as heating output, just close down the spacing on the tubing.

You can get a manifold with 3/4" outlets, but it has a 2" sweat inlet and 12 outlets. It only costs $622.95 from PexSupply.

Manifolds with 3/4" outlets are made for very, very large systems.

This is what I'm leaning toward at this point.
I did see the one for over $600 - puh-lease!

Seen our plumbers make copper manifolds several times. Bet you can have one custom made way cheaper then $600
