    Posted: 08 May 2016 at 04:09
I have a couple of questions about the faucet feed:

1.  What size is the faucet feed fitting (circled connector)?  It's not 3/8" compression or 1/2" compression.  I need a washer for it as I lost one in the bowels of the boat ...

2.  What is the size of the fitting below it?  Fitting has 1/2 scribed on it, so 1/2 NPT?  I'm looking to put a tee fitting on it to feed a fresh water toilet.

Thank you

I am pretty sure the circled fitting is 1/2 NPT

I'm beginning to think they are 3/8 BSP and 1/2 BSP but I'd appreciate if someone could confirm.

Awesome, thank you.   Straight or tapered?  Also, anyone know of a supplier in the US or UK where I can obtain a 1/2 BSP tee and 1/2 BSP to 1/2" barb fitting?  

I'd prefer to tee into the PEX but I can't find a supplier in the US for metric PEX tubing, fittings or tools.   Very frustrating as this should only be a 15 minute job.

Have you tried the Hanse spare part shop ?

They are normally very helpful.

I have ordered from them in the past but have not contacted them directly for this question. I will try them, thank you.

For your reference, heres the answer.  Note, mine is a 2013 model ... other years and models may vary.

The white PEX feed pipe is PRINETO multilayer pipe 16 with actual dimensions of 17mm OD x 2,8mm wall thickness for 14.2mm ID.

The next fitting up is a PRINETO 16-R 1/2 transition with external thread.  The thread is 1/2 BSPT
(BSP tapered male).


The top fitting is a generic (not PRINETO) 1/2 BSPP (BSP parallel female) to 3/8 BSPT (BSP tapered male) adapter for the faucet feed. 

From what Im learning, standard practice for sealing BSP is to use BSPP (parallel) female fittings with BSPT (tapered) male.

PRINETO info and price sheet: http://www.ivt-rohr.de/<wbr>fileadmin/Medien/PDFs/IVT_<wbr>Gesamtpreisliste_P_021015_EN.<wbr>pdf

I may either tap into the PEX and order a 16-Rp 1/2-16 tee with inner threaded outlet, or just use a brass tee like this: http://www.parkerhydraulics.co.uk/nickel-plated-brass-adaptors-equal-tees along with a brass 1/2 hose tail like this: http://www.parkerhydraulics.co.uk/industrial/hose-tails/nickel-plated-brass-male-hose-tails/

Loads of plumbing fun.  This should have been a 15 minute job.

I finished the installation.  I chose the Raritan SeaEra QC fresh water with smart control.  Very quiet and no more odor.  I capped the raw water intake hose end and zip-tied above the waterline for optional future use  The SeaEra can be ordered with a fresh/sea water solenoid for choice in intake supply.  I'm very happy with the result.

Sfiler:

It is not entirely clear to me what you did.  Did you just get the "T" with two male and one female?  Or, did you buy/make two PEC tubes that connect to the "T"?
