 plumbing bathroom Manifold?
Author: psimeon123 (OH)

Hello,I have a large bathroom that I am ready to start plumbing. My question is do I need a manifold or can I T off my main line to all fixtures. My thought was to tie in before and after the hot water tank which is 3/4. Than run that under the floor (in basement )the bathroom is on first floor ranch,and run 1/2 to all fixtures. I have washing machine/dryer with steam-double vanity sink-toilet-sink beside washer-2 shower faucets. Room is approx 16x16 Thanks for any advise. Using Pex

I'd just run a pair of 3/4" pipes over to the new bath and use tee's there. You don't want more than 2 fixture on a 1/2" pipe , so 3/4" X 3/4" X 1/2" tees til you get down to the last fixtures then use 3/4" X 1/2" X 1/2" for them.
