    Need to replace a quarter turn ball valve with a full port ball valve to get full pressure outside the house for irrigations

    Don't know what to say, I tried that in the store and it did not feel like it would go properly in when I used iron pipe However the other reason stands, it would have been too complicated to connect from the full port control valve to the pipe using fittings so I preferred to eliminate the...

    Need to replace a quarter turn ball valve with a full port ball valve to get full pressure outside the house for irrigations

    THANK YOU! How about the street tee...that one is brutal to search as it can be spelt in a thousands ways Found this one but there is no way to say if it is 3/8" at the female ends or it is 1/2". the parts you suggested above are all 1/2" at the male end so I guess I need 1/2" female...

    this is killing me, I can't find similar parts at Canadian suppliers or on Amazon.ca, either they don't exist OR I do not know what other equivalent key words or terms to use because it seems there is lots of these equivalent terms

    Need to replace a quarter turn ball valve with a full port ball valve to get full pressure outside the house for irrigations

    Plumbing is really confusing when it comes to threads ...a damn mess I am seeing this https://flixwater.com/npt-vs-mip-fitting/ and this https://cloudfront.zoro.com/img/zoro_tips/pipe_thread_definitions_eZtip.pdf Both docs agree that NPT is tapered and not straight so it won't fit my copper...
