        Comments about (48-88) 1/2" Flare x 1/2" MIP Brass Half Union:

        The hex on the fitting is so narrow that when the flare nut goes on, it is very difficult to get a wrench on it to tighten the assembly. Very poor design in an effort to save a little brass. As a Pro, I spend a lot of money with SupplyHouse, and normally the fitting selection is of good quality items, but I will not be buying these again unless they change their supplier.

        Hard To Find Fitting That Can Be Useful

        Comments about (48-128) 3/4" Flare x 1/2" MIP Brass Half Union:

        I installed an outside propane tankless water heater that required a 3/4" supply line, but the regulator on my propane tank only had a 1/2" threaded outlet. The warranty on the heater did not allow ANY 1/2" supply line to be used. This uncommon fitting solved the problem without having to install a different regulator.

        • (48-1212) 3/4" Flare x 3/4" MIP Brass Half Union


          Hello, I need a flare-to-MIP (or flare-to-FIP) adapter that allows 3/4" flow on both ends, as this will be in a supply line for a gas water heater that requires about 200,000 btu flow. The item in the accompanying photo doesn't fit the bill, but it appears to be a generic flare/MIP union pic, so I hope that the item has the same size opening on both ends. Thank you.

            Hey Eric,
            I'll be happy to try to help you, but I need a little more info first.
            The fitting in the pic is indeed a flare x mip half union, but you say
            it doesn't fit the bill. If you could tell me what it is you're trying
            to join to what, it would help. For example, are you trying to join the
            end of an iron pipe to soft copper tubing (using a flare x fip)? Or
            putting a coupling on the end of an iron pipe and joining soft copper
            tubing to that (using a flare x mip)? Or something else, etc.?
            As long as the pipe is properly sized, a 3/4" flare x 3/4" mip or fip
            will work just fine in a 3/4" line with no meaningful restriction to the
            gas flow.

            I'm a fellow shopper. A few months ago I experienced the same issues, as the
            accompanying photo a part, may not look like the part in the description. If
            you choose a 3/4" flare x MIP, the choose a 3/4" FIP union....or maybe it's
            called 3/4" x 3/4" pipe coupling. Iron or brass will work. What's
            interesting is that a gas valve should provide the coupling necessary to
            make the connection, unless you've relocated the pipe. In relocation, the
            valve should be removed and relocated behind the new placement of the
            appliance. Hope that information helps.

            Yes. This is flare x male ips. If it is called full 3/4", then it is not reducing at all. This is qdequate for your particular situation.
