Twistloc products are a one step, fully demountable and reusable push-fit plumbing system which combines both pushfit and twist locking technology to offer a guaranteed secure, peace of mind leak free joint. Twistloc which incorporates pressure and combination system, is the Twist and Lock system suitable for plumbing, local/home hot water supply and heating systems. Twistloc products have been tested and approved in accordance with WRAS, Kitemark, cUPC and NSF.
Our products provide for the perfect plumbing system and are manufactured to ISO 9001 BSI standard. The specification of products complied with the requirement of central local/home heating and water supply systems. Various test have proved that Twistloc products are resistant to temperature and pressure beyond the normal operation ranges. The secure connection indicator means that once the green band can no longer be seen, you'll have absolute certainty that the joint is properly connected. This means you can be rest assured, knowing that you won’t have to worry about future issues with leaks due to imperfect joining. The secure connection indicator is patented by our manufacturer. Not only does it make installations easier and safer, but is also straightforward and simple to use. Twistloc products must be installed to the correct plumbing regulations. Follow our installation guide for further information on correct fitting.

Making a perfect connection
To Lock The Pipe Connection

These instructions relate to the installation of fittings for copper, PB, PEX and cPVC pipes.
Please note that it is the installer’s responsibility to ensure that fittings, pipework and other components are appropriate for the intended applications, and that products are installed in accordance with the installation instructions and local plumbing codes.
No information in this publication is intended to create any warranty beyond the SNC product warranty applicable to the plumbing system.

Installing push-fit products:
Before you start, inspect the pipe. Ensure there are no scratches, gouges or any form of damage or deformation on the pipe. It should also be free from dirt and grease that may affect the seal.

Pay close attention to the first inch (25.4mm) from the cut ends. Damage or foreign substances in this area may cause leakage problems. If there are any concerns, cut the affected pipe end to a clean and undamaged point.

Don’t use any coarse materials to clean the outside surface of either plastic or copper pipes as this could affect the seal and result in leakage.

Ensure fittings and pipes are always kept clean by keeping them in the packaging provided - don’t empty products onto the floor.

Never insert your finger into the fitting as you risk being cut by the metal ‘grip teeth’ inside the fitting.

Manifolds

Manifolds combine push-fit technology with the value-added advantages of a manifold.
Manifolds are designed to simplify manifold and pipe installation in Copper, cPVC, PE-RT, PB and PEX pipe, water or hydronic heating systems.
manifold control unit being tested to requirements of IGC109 and approved in NSF/ANSI 372 manifold supply inlet connections utilize a special 1"CTS or 28 OD connection that requires transition fittings. Connections for the individual pipe distribution lines are push-fit type of fittings. Use only fittings supplied with or other fittings designed for special port transitions which are available from your Twistloc distributor.

In order to maximize the maximum water and energy savings of manifold system, it is recommended to use the smallest distribution line Size that satisfy the flow rate and pressure requirements of each individual fixture. Using lines in Sizes larger than necessary can increase hot water delivery time.
Measures such as: increasing the line Size up to 1/2"(15), relocating the manifold to reduce line length(s), installing a separate manifold close to an outlying group of fixtures, or running the line(s) in a more direct (shorter) path may alleviate a potential problem.
If the hose bibbs are primarily for irrigation purposes, they should be supplied from the main service line prior to manifold. The service line should have Sizes appropriate for the additional water demand.

INSTALLATION GUIDE

These Installation Instructions contain information on the installation of Manifolds hot/cold potable water distribution system Copper, cPVC, PE-RT, PB and PEX pipes.
The installer shall be responsible for ensuring that Manifolds, PEX tubing and other components on hand are appropriate for the intended applications, and that Manifolds are installed in accordance with these installation instructions and local plumbing codes.
Nothing in this publication is intended to create any warranty beyond SNC’s warranty applicable to manifold plumbing system.

NOTE: These instructions should be used to install Manifolds. Instructions specific to Manifolds will be contained in an instruction sheet provided with Manifolds.

  • Keep manifolds in the original shipping carton until they are installed. Protect manifold from debris, wood chips, drywall mud or dust, paint, sand, etc., before, during and after installation. manifold shall be covered during application of interior finishing materials such as paints, stains and textured coatings.
  • DO NOT apply any impact force to manifolds.
  • DO NOT disassemble manifolds.
  • DO NOT adjust the tie rod bolts. They are preset in the factory.
  • manifold and fittings are plastic materials and thus they should be treated differently from metals. *
  • manifold and fittings may melt, crack or distort if exposed to open flame or excessive heat.
  • Install manifold in an accessible place which is not exposed to freezing temperatures or direct sunlight.
  • Prevent fluids in manifold from freezing.
  • DO NOT use pipe dope, thread sealants or Teflon® paste in order to seal threaded fittings. All of the connections to manifold are a mechanical compression type, or seal with a rubber gasket and do not require any other forms of sealant.
  • Prevent manifold from coming into contact with cPVC or PVC cements or cleaners, acids such as solder fluxes, strong oxidizing agents, highly alkaline solutions, lubricants, leak check compounds, bug sprays, cleaners, paints, bleaches, or other chemicals which could adversely affect the plastic. Avoid using solder flux or solvent cements adjacent to manifold.
  • DO NOT use standard pipe fittings on manifold. All distribution line connections shall be made with fittings supplied with each manifold or other SNC approved connections. All supply line connections to manifold shall be made only with fittings available from SNC.
  • Distribution lines shall enter or exit manifold in a straight line parallel to the length of manifold.
  • manifold plumbing system relies upon the proper fastening of distribution line connections.
    Failure to complete all connections will result in leakage.
  • If these installation guidelines conflict or are inconsistent with local building or plumbing codes, any codes applicable to parallel plumbing systems shall prevail.
