I think you guys aren’t considering that I’m a 36 yr pro that’s telling you I’ve installed hundreds of these valves without a problem.@Twowaxhack The issue you may not be considering is the friction loss of those crimp fittings. Yes your measuring 50 psi static pressure, but as soon as you run the water it passes through them and drops the pressure, a lot in some cases, depending how many you use. The smaller the fitting the worse this gets. Like I said if you get done and your measuring the correct output good on you. I'd rather just be confident no matter the pressure (within reason) that the installation couldn't be improved. I think i lot of Plumbers feel that way.
So if you’re having problems then maybe you guys are the ones who are not considering all the pros and cons of pex and how it’s installed at different pressures with tub and shower valves.
I’m not having any problems yet I’m using products that some say can’t be used with success how I’m using them.
I have to leave the restrictor in the showerhead until after inspection or it flows too much water......That’s a WIN.
I’ve posted pics, I’ve posted that I have more pics.
There’s not much more I can do to prove my point.
