Thanks Earl, very helpful.

Just to go into a little more detail. with the hose/equipment I have already purchased for line (B) the paint line.

Firstly all my hoses have 1/4 BSP nuts, so my hose length are fairly fixed (apart from adding two together if needed)

I have: two 32ft fairly stiff hoses with a (9mm) 23/64 bore – which I was going to use either 1 (32ft) or both (64ft) joined together before the filter/regulator

one 16ft more flexible hose with a (8mm) 5/16 bore – which I thought would be good from the regulator/filter to my spray gun. (I do have a regulator on my gun so I can see if there is a pressure drop from the wall mounted regulator/filter).

so my main question now (in more detail) is should I use: one of the 32ft hoses before the filter/regulator both 32ft hoses to make 64ft in total neither hoses at all and splash out another about $150 on copper piping?

Also I did read somewhere that looping the system was good for no pressure drop, but I didn’t think this suited my equipment/layout!

No problem with using multi lines at the same time as its just me using the whole system.

Thanks again for any advice in advance :)
