QPL 4-Way Valved Manifold
Nice machined product however the description Screwfix is a bit misleading about Brackets. The description states wall mounting brackets which it doesn't come with it

Good product, stock up on PTFE
Just installed cold and hot water manifolds in my bathroom. These products are nicely machined, so installation is easy. Manifolds produce a really tidy installation, perfect result. Bathroom is a much tidier installation as a result. Connecting Speedfit PEX pipe is easy using the extra Pex/pb pipe connectors, when you use these, don't use inserts. I guess other PEX pipe will work fine.
The QPL stuff seems real good value compared to other stuff (hundreds of pounds!) which seems totally over-priced. So, I highly recommend this.
IMPORTANT: If you're installing this, you've got a bunch of male/female union joints to deal with. The threads aren't tight, so expect to go liberal with the PTFE. We're talking 15-20 winds of PTFE to get a water-tight seal.

Every thing is good with this product, just useless without the bracket and the pipe connectors what the Screwfix doesn't provide it.
I have been advised to buy it else where but this is not a good option for me.
it would be nice to get every thing at one place at Screwfix.

Not complete, not 3/4"
Note that the entry and exit are 3/4" BPS, however the valved parts are not, they use a metric thread, and you need cat 24775 or 76293 to fit anything too it!
In addition the actual bore of the valved exits is 10mm or less giving a high back pressure for this unit.
Also note that despite the description given the brackets are not included...
