I have a 3/4″ pipe at my water meter, and am wondering if putting larger pipes beyond this would give me better showers (the pressure was measured at 80 psi). One plumber said no, it wouldn’t change anything, but doesn’t common sense come in here, or am I wrong?
allen e smith, whatever pressure & flow you have at the meter cannot be increased unless your house is below your meter. How far is it from your meter to the house? & what is the elevation of you highest outlet, above or below the meter? You can, to a degree get over frictional losses through the pipe by oversizing. Laying Plums in America is the same as any where else but with a different accent. Bob
