    On my extrol 60 gal. expansion tank there is a 1-1/4" fitting on the bottom . Can I reduce this to 1/2". and then run 1/2" pex to my air eliminator?

    Thanx. Huff

    From what I have read yes, so I did it with mine. I have half inch copper going from my air vent to my 120 gallon tank. It works so far.

    I did exactly that,reducing 1 1/4" down to 1/2" pex,been running that way for 3 years.Water is not going to move that fast to and from tank to need anything larger.
