I'm sure thus a stupid question being i run duct work for living i don't get it all the fittings male side are a 1\4 in what is the point of a 1/2 in hose id hooks to a 1/2 in barb but the male thread is 1/4 in radiators splitters are all 1\4 female threads nothing but restictions am I missing something
hope some one can answer thanks tim
 
A lot of folks have larger fittings to allow larger tubing, its mainly an aesthetic thing,
but you are correct in that any variance between fitting sizes will affect pressure and flowrates
as muffin said though, check out the W/c subforum, and in particular the W/c sticky
