Thread: going from 1/2" feeds to 3/4" valves...

    Default going from 1/2" feeds to 3/4" valves...

    Hi, I just received the new valves for my shower project and although I ordered 1/2" to match my feeds they shipped me 3/4" thermostatic valve.....will this make a difference in pressure or water flow ? its 3/4" only at the val;ve itself...using ipex tubing ??

    Thanks

    lucky you. Unless they charged you for it.

    it will not work against you.

    Default valve

    Not likely to do either because the feed pipe's size is more important as far as dynamic pressure and volume are concerned.

    I have to disagree with hj. The 3/4" valve will supply more gpm then a 1/2" valve but less then the same 3/4" valve with 3/4" supply lines.
