Boat plumbing equipment consists of the system of pipes, fittings, pumps, and other components used to manage water and waste on a boat or marine vessel. Just like plumbing in a house, boat plumbing is essential for the proper distribution of water for various onboard activities and the safe disposal of waste.
Marine hose is an integral part of your boat plumbing system. This specialised hose is built to withstand the harsh marine environment, and can be used to transfer fuel, oil, chemicals, liquefied gases, fresh water and much, much more, depending on what marine hose you purchase. To secure the hose, we highly recommend purchasing stainless steel hose clips. If you're looking to secure hose together, you'll need marine hose connectors, as these ensure a reliable and leak-free connection between hose.
Marine valves and seacocks play a key role in regulating the flow of liquids and gases on board. Seacocks are installed through the hull of a boat and are used to open or close off underwater through-hull fittings, whilst marine valves come in a range of different types that offer different uses - with the most popular being ball valves and check valves.
