    Default What size Aluminum tubing for water lines? Bassett T AN size?

    What size are the AN fittings on the Bassett T? What size is the AN fitting going into the header water lines? What size copper or aluminum do I need to buy to make water lines (from Bassett T to the header lines? Pictures would be great also.
    I guessing AN8?

    you should use stainless steel tubing for everything.... from the headers (if thats what your talking about) Those should be 1/4" tube. Then the connector of the header water lines to the TEE are both typically -8 AN (or 1/2" Tube) but you can run 3/8" tube with adapters on the ends to -6. You need to remember that the ID of Tubing is greater than the ID of Hose because of the wall thickness. So smaller is actually bigger.... with Tubing. hopefully that makes some sense to you.

    Default AN sizing

    If you are unfamiliar with AN sizing, an easy way to remember what fractional size the AN number equates to is that everything is in 16's of an inch. Therefore 8AN is 8/16's of an inch or 1/2. 4AN=4/16 or 1/4inch. 16AN=16/16 or 1 inch. And so on. Probably not what you needed but hopefully a help to someone.
