    I am converting a mother daughter into a single family home. I cut and capped the incoming 3/4" hot and cold that used to service the upstairs mother daughter. These two pipes fall right in a hallway closet I will be framing out. This is right across from the hall from the proposed master bathroom.

    Would I be able to put the manifold in this closet? This would make servicing the master bath a snap. The only issue I see is that I would have to go up and over the hallway and then back down to the fixtures. I might lose a little bit of pressure.

    Thoughts? Would the code allow this?

    I don't speak New Jersey. What the heck is a mother daughter. I didn't get the memo.

    You can put the manifold anywhere you like in the home. Distance does create more friction loss.
