                      Q:I'm tearing my hair out trying to find a 3/4 FIP to 1/2 MIP for potable water. Does this not exist?! WHY?! Should I be looking for something else that is functionally the same, but called something different?

                      A:  For the Everbilt 3/4 in. MIP x 1/2 in. FIP Brass Bushing Fitting, the fitting you want is not a standard fitting, but you can adapt ¾” Male to a ½” female by using a ¾” FIP x ½” FIP reducing coupling and a ½” Close nipple. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-3-4-in-x-1-2-in-FIP-Brass-Reducing-Coupling-Fitting-801919/300096767 & https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-1-2-in-x-Close-MIP-Brass-Nipple-Fitting-802679/207176628

                        A:  "For use with oil, water and air lines". Looks fine to me. Find a plastic bushing otherwise.

                          by|Feb 13, 2022

                            A:  They do exist, just everyone may not have them. Sometimes, the abbreviations MIP or FIP can be confused with M(ale) or F(emale) I(ron) P(ipe). NPT, which stands for National Pipe Tapered, or Thread, is probably a more conventional term. You would say, 'Male NPT' or 'Female NPT'... or alternately MPT for male or FPT for female fittings. Using these as search terms with the measurements you wanted, I got multiple hits in a web search. Try using these and see if you find the fitting you need. It could be that it is something that is not available right off the shelf and you may have to order. I hope this is helpful, and good luck with your project! -willis

                              A:  The 3/4 in. MIP x 1/2 in. FIP Brass Bushing Fitting is not for use in this application. You would need to use an adapter that adapts the tapered pipe threads to garden hose thread such as item https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-3-4-in-MHT-x-1-2-in-FIP-Brass-Adapter-Fitting-801729/300096291.

                                A:  Possibly. You will need another adapter that transitions to hose thread as opposed to NPT.

                                  A:  if the shower arm is 1/2 a rough thread I don't see any problem as long that it's fit the bushing to my knowledge, the bushing 3/4 by 1/2 is a rough thread and the shower arm as soft thread if I am right I don't see how it's fits sincerely Danny p

                                  A:  No! Not even close. If you ask an associate what you want to accomplish he should be able to hook you up.
