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.
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.

Q: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.
