      I bought an old house in France and am in the process of renovating it. I’ve found that I can purchase fixtures much less expensively here in the U.S. than I can there. My question is; Does anyone know if there are connectors available that go from 3/8″ and 1/2″ to their respective metric sizes? Or any other suggestions re:connecting american
      taps, shower valves etc. to metric
      supply lines?
      Thanks

      3/8″ and 1/2″ male iron and female irons are standard adapters with the other end at 15mm. I cannot see a problem as far as fittings are concerned. You may find fitting onto a bathtub a problem as majority bath mixers are wall mounted- but then again these can be converted. Connections are at 150mm for wall mounted.

      Sorry about the double posting.
