PDQ issues applicable across all PDQ Yachts (or if you can't find a place for something, it probably belongs here for now)

galley sink faucet

Post by bg5w » Wed Dec 19, 2018 11:11 am

I need to replace my galley faucet on the 32. The PDQ 36 may have a similar arrangement. The two supply nipples to the faucet go out the back through the wall, and do not make a 90 degree turn and go through the counter.
Looking at old posts, it appears both Scanvik and whale make replacements, but the diagrams indicate the the supply going through the counter. Can these supply nipples be rotated relative to the faucet arm to go out the back bulkhead? Also - it appears the Whale has British pipe threads (BPT) and do these mate with the connect fittings - ?

Thanks

Hi Bob,

Happy New Year!

I've attached pics of my galley setup with Scandvik 10474. The Starboard spacer serves the purpose of minimizing the intrusion into the cabinet storage and covers up the poorly drilled holes of a "Marine Professional". The Whale fittings can be matched with just about any thread and pipe configuration. 15mm tubing was on my boat.

Joe,


thanks for the response and info. I ordered a whale faucet (WHA-tb4112) from jmsonline, since seeing it recommended on an earlier post.
I let all know how that turns out.

Bob
