Using PEX piping will it reduce the flow?


Question: Low water flow from new single lever faucet. Gone from ½” copper to ½” pex tubing with 4 pex brass fittings in line. Going with the pex fittings in line will this restrict the flow?

Answer: Pex has a higher flow rate than the same size of Copper Pipes. So, your flow should be increased not reduced.
