No they all use the same 1/4" piping regardless of size.

Thanks:

Except the ones that use the thicker 3/4 tubing.  :grin:

Mine uses the 3/4 tubing from the mains (I have a bigger than normal tap for it), and the drain is thicker too.

All the standard stuff is 1/4 inch though. Unless you've got a huge unit or specified specifically, it'll all be 1/4 by default.

I'd be a bit disturbed if yours was bigger than mine...

Na, it's just because we had issues with throughput trying to reach closer to the 150GPD I'm supposed to get, so we upgraded all the lines to and from the unit which improved it a good amount.

That first line of the quote worries me on a lot of levels .........I am going to be sensible and walk away from it.... :huh:
