I am re-piping the water supply lines in my house. I have a 1 inch supply line coming from the main. This will travel about 30 feet before being split into 2 lines, one supplying the hot and the other supplying the cold.
My intention is to run the 1 inch into the "top" of a copper tee then having 3/4 inch lines coming out from the two branches.
I could use a 3/4 x 3/4 x 1" reducing tee, but I am wondering if having a bigger tee would help in reducing pressure loss at the split.
For example, if I used a 2" x 2" x 1" tee with fitting reducers then taking the 2 inch down to 3/4 for the branches, would that help at all?
Or is there a better way than a tee to split the flow equally?
