"The picture and description do not match what I received, but I think it should work fine. It only has one air vent, the drain valve is not quarter turn, and it's not FULLY assembled. I used this for a single zone, multi-loop basement slab. The finish is very nice, the threads are clean and crisp. I think there are enough nice features to warrant the extra $$ over a dumb manifold. The 1/2 PEX compression fitting are included and go together nicely. The flow valves shipped closed causing some initial panic during the air test. Once I opened them up, I had flow and no leaks first pass."
Works great so far
Most of my loops, 7 of 9, are going to be in Joist bays for the first floor and 2 are going to be in the basement below the level of the Manifold. Is it possible to invert this manifold or does that mess up the flow meters?

The manufacturer does not recommend installing the manifold upside down for this specific reason - flow meters would not function properly and with time may stop working altogether. If the functionality of flow meters is of no importance, this option is acceptable.
