    Gentlemen; Any preference as to brand name manifolds for 1/2" pex, staple up. Brass, copper, wirsbo plastic?

    Will be using wirsbo aluminum plates with Wirsbo pex tubing.

    I went with a Mr. Pex, stainless, 8 port manifold with flow meters and balancing valves. I am sure any of the quality brands would serve you well.

    I scored Watts radiant SS on ebay, 5 zone for around $100 used. Persoanlly even though I'm a big Wirsbo fan, I'd avoid any plastic parts (asside from PEX) in a heating system, brass, copper, or SS, will all work eaqually well in a closed loop hydronic system. I also used Mr.Pex PEX-a in my floor same as Wirsbo, PEX-a is the only pex I use on any job. Much more workable and easier to make tight turns without fittings.

    Thanks guys!
    I will go with either the Wirsbo or Mr. pex items. Also with a tried and true product in either brass or SS.
