    Hi All,

    My plumber roughed-in supply and drain lines in our crawlspace for a claw foot tub. We've had the floor tiled and I'm now drilling through the marble to locate supply.

    I have the location for the supply lines now marked on the floor. We are installing hot and cold shut-offs right above the floor in case any leaks ever develop.

    Anyhow, the Kingston Brass shutoffs are set up for 1/2" NPT on their inlets. Supplied with the shutoffs are 2 1/4" long NPT to NPS adapters. These adapters are 2 1/4" long. My floor thickness is 2 1/2"

    Where can I get longer npt to nps adapters?
    Is the NPS side of the adapter meant to be connected to the PEX via Compression fitting?
    The barbed connectors I see don't give me a warm and fuzzy, especially for the hot water side.. I'm concerned it could soften and come loose.

    Hi Marlinman,
    I figured somebody made the parts needed. So this is straight thread NPS Male and Female?

    Can Pex be connected directly to the NPS using compression fittings like this:
