    Hello,

    I'm doing plumbing work for a shower. I have the following question:

    I know the minimum supply line for a shower is 3/8 inch. But what about the following senario, I have a 3/4 supply line that has a reducing Tee to 1/2 in pipe. The 1/2 inch has a Tee going to a sink and the end is capped. Can I uncap it and install piping for the shower?

    ||--------T------] capped

    * This is for hot water only

    Thanks,
    Sam

    Great. I thought I read somewhere shower supply must not have any other fixtures branching off. But I'm glad this layout will work -- it will make my life a lot easier.

    Thanks,
    Sam
