Im confused on the best method to stub out the plumbing in my basement finish bathroom. Here is what the book says for some of its projects, "Use reducing T-fittings to run 1/2" supplies to each fixture, ending with femalethread adapters"
So Im wondering 1 if this is the best method, and 2, what I screw in the female thread adapter, as the book ever detail that.
I assume we're talking about the vanity sink and water closet, right?
You're better off stubbing up to a shutoff valve for each supply line. That'll require a male threaded pipe or a 1/2" copper for sweat or compression connections. The fixture will connect to the shutoff valve with a pre-made flexible connector.
