Yes, it can be shortened, however, I don't know by how much, one source says it should be at minimum of 12", another says this stub out should be a size larger ie., 1/2 pipe should have a 3/4 inch air cushion chamber, my local plumbing guys say it don't matter, I guess trial and error wouldn't hurt, basically you would cut the stub out shorter and solder on a new cap. Hope this helps...


: Thanks for your response earlier.
: Referring to the stub out of the water supply line used as air cushion,
: the stub out of the "T" - can it be shortenned? and by how much?
: If it can be shortenned, is there a special procedure
: (other than draining that stub) for trapping air in it?
: Thanks.
