  • 1/2 or 3/8 compression?

    Hi All, I'm going to be to be installing 3 angle valves, one for toilet and two for sink. While at the store I noticed 2 different compression choices 1/2 and 3/8, does it matter which one I choose?

    There are some water closets which require a 1/2" supply so you are safer buying the stop for 1/2".

        My bad, I probably didnt do a very good job explaining the situation. Yeah, 1/2 supply. I went with the 3/8 compression, the rest of the house appears to be 3/8 so I guess I'll stay consistent.
