Location of Multi Port Tee for Plumbing
Hello GBA, Zone 2A, I’m replumbing my house, and need help deciding the location of the main multiport tees. There will be 12 lines for the cold, and 8 for the hot. I can put it in the garage right by the water filters and heater, then route all lines up and over, or just put the tee in the attic then route the lines over from it. There is an access panel immediately in front of where it would be in the attic, so access is not an issue. All lines before the multiport tees are copper.
Pros of the in the attic:
Looks much cleaner in the garage.
Less PEX used.
Easier to fireblock ceiling
No PEX exposed to sunlight
Easier to route future lines (don’t have to go through ceiling)
Pros of in the garage:
Slightly easier to attach all lines
Any leaks at tee will not damage ceiling
Anything I’m missing? I’m going to put it in the attic based on what I know right now. I will install a drip pan and drain below the tees, and put a bucket over them in case of any bursts.
Thank you for your time.
