Forum Title: Angle valve sizing question?
Other than ice maker tubing which is 1/4" compression, what are the different sizes for angle valves? And how can you decipher the size of it other than years of experience of just looking at it. These are what I know of; 3/8" compression 1/2" compression 1/2" IPS (and is F.I.P. interchangeable with I.P.S.)
