    BTW: Today's project is to replace my regulator. Brenda says the relief valve has been leaking for weeks so I checked and the house-pressure is 160 psi.

    Indeed. In Europe anything over 30 lbs is pretty rare.

      Here is a look into the inlet of the twin ell. Its reduced to a 1/4" water way. I did not ream the copper yet,I just put it together real quick.



      Now here is a look into the 3/4 spout connection outlet. Notice the pipe in the middle......thats the inlet directed toward the lift gate of the spout.

        It's funny how different things work in different areas. I was told not only is 30 psi. normal in Europe but sometimes that is to a 5-story building and the upstairs unit might only be 10 psi.

        My travel trailer is higher than that.

            Only if you want to wash the shampoo out of your hair. I spent some time in Germany and was shocked at the design of some of their older fixtures.

                                That's the REAL reason you got the bidet seat isn't it?

                                Are there any non-lead-free fittings in your plumbing at home?
