    Hello,

    I have a faucet valve that has a 1/2" NPT connection on the bottom, and a 1/2" straight pipe thread connection out the side. A regular 1/2" FIP supply line with the internal rubber gasket appears to connect just fine to both threads.

    Are there any issues with using this supply line for both of these threads?

    Thank You.
    Ron.

    If the 1/2" FIP fits both, why not?
