Hello I am in the idea stage of designing a entire plumbing remodel in my home.
My intent is to remove all copper and switch to a PEX setup with a manifold system.
It is a single story with basement and well water source.
The primary issue I have is the well and the hot water tank are on opposite sides of the home.
I was thinking of a manifold directly after the well for cold and a manifold beside the water tank for hot.
My main questions are.
What type of manifold would be recommended because a Viega manabloc over four ports is split both hot and cold. The minibloc is only 1/2" so I am afraid of pressure loss compared to 3/4" and would need to do more than one in series to complete all the lines needed

Would it be easier to do something like a Sioux chief copper manifold with valves on either line?

I attached a diagram of the home layout.

The laundry2 is a main floor laundry
Laundry1 is basement.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
