I was not sure what to expect when I ordered these. My local stores do not carry this style of manifold (with the built in valves). They appear quite well made and sturdy. Pressured up the mainfold(s) with no leaks, valves all work as expected.
I bought the manifold with open ends by mistake. I would like to just close off one end. What's a good way to do this, and will it affect the performance of the manifold? I bought two of these, one for cold, and one for hot, and would like to close one end of each. Thanks very much in advance, Hank.
You can put a short piece of 3/4" PEX pipe with a plug at one of the ends to cap it. This will not affect manifold's performance.

The open end manifold can be feed from both ends to help reduce pressure differences or am I missing the reason for the open end. I am replumbing my house(I have Quest) and will install several manifolds with "home runs" back to a central location. I have a well
The open end of the manifold simply allows you to run the PEX line further. It does not serve a pressure balancing purposes and operates in the same manner in both well water and municipal water systems.

Can this manifold be used with expansion (Uponor) connections.
While PexUniverse.com reserves the legal right set its own product pricing, some
manufacturers require internet retailers to display a price at or above
manufacturer's established MAP ("Minimum Advertised Price").
Since our price for this product is lower then MAP, the manufacturer does not allow
us to display our lowest price until you place the product in the shopping cart.
This allows us to continue offering our lowest prices while staying consistent with
product manufacturer's policy.
This process does not require you to purchase the product - it can be easily
removed from shopping cart if needed.
We understand that this is an inconvenience and are continually working with
manufacturers to educate them on how MAP affects our customers.
