These manifolds make it possible for you to accurately control the flow of water both on the suction, and return lines on your pond. With these manifolds you can design a system where you can effectively incorporate multiple pumps, skimmers, bottom drains, jets and waterfalls in the most efficient way possible. All the manifolds except the smallest one (1×3, 2” body) are made of 3” PVC pipe to prevent any restriction in water flow.
Why the 2-way valves instead of a conventional ball valve? In our experience with building and maintaining ponds, we’ve found that it can be beneficial to have these 2-way valves in place of a typical ball valve. With these valves, you’re able to rebuild them in place (no more having to cut pipe!), and you’re able to lock them into position, preventing mistaken adjustments to the flow of your pond.
