Larger to Handle all

A 1" dia. thru-hull will provide 4 times the capacity of a ˝" dia. fitting. The trick is to properly manifold the larger supply, to provide multiple smaller end-use appliances, without interference. For this reason, manifolding is not usually recommended for water supplies, but reserved for low-pressure drainage.
