What size hose bib should I use for 3/4 inch pipe in yard?
The hose bib is in the middle of the yard . I connect a 100 ft hose to it. The hose has an inside diameter of 1/2 inch. I then attach a spray nozzle to end of hose. The steel supply pipe starts at 1 inch and is reduced 3/4 inch inside diameter by reducer. I bought a 1/4 turn bib with 3/4 inch thread but I now notice that the inside orifice is only maybe an 1/8 inch diameter. the old hose bib appeared to be 3/4 inch orifice. Am I causing unnecessary friction by using a narrow hose bib?
