    Guys

    I have a 5 way cold water Manifold which is split, Hymer do them for silly money £100 plus, Does anyone know if these things are just a standard bit of kit available from any dealer or they are bespoke
    or any ideas where I can obtain a cheaper version?

    Cheers
    Andy

    Any make or part No's on it,
    I doubt that Hymer would have something specially made ,although it is possible they did
    if it is special changing for something standard would be time consuming and may work out dearer in the long run, you could make one with copper fittings if so inclined, have a look at micro bore central heating system manifolds bet there not cheap either:Doh:

    not sure exactly why they use a manifold... means seperate pipe runs to all the taps, i run a single pipe and just tee it at the taps to go onto the next one.

    BUT, if it's for the 12mm semi rigid pipe, you could easily make up a manifold using 4 tees and an elbow,
    same for the flexi pipe that goes onto barbs, a few barbed tees and an elbow for the last fitting, cost prolly a tenner,

    unless the manifold does something other than just split the water line to feed the taps of course.
