Galley faucet manufacturer

I’m wondering if anyone can identify the manufacturer of my galley faucet. The drip is getting frequent enough to finally do something about. I believe it to be original as the head faucet is from the same manufacturer. In looking for parts I’ve contacted Scandvik, Ambassador / Shureflo, and ITC marine and they all responded that it’s not theirs. Thought I’d try here before contacting Catalina.

Thanks
Gary

I'd think Catalina would know; that's the same faucet that in my '97, so they obviously used it for years.

It looks very much like the Scandvik carried by Defender

That is the same one that was in my boat ,but I replaced it with a single handle faucet, it saves water and my wife loves it . You know right were to put the handle for the right temp. Scandvik makes a single handle that fits right in

Gary - I believe the faucet is by Grothe. Several years ago our galley faucet was dripping and I was able to purchase online a new "cylinder" that simply screws into the faucet base. The handle simply pulls off and the old cylinder unscrews. You do need to tell them wether it is the cold or the hot as the threads go in opposite directions. I will check my records to see if I have the info on part number and source. I recall that after a Google search for a source, I called and they were very helpful. It's an easy fix.

Hopefully David's solution will work. Great reply! I printed it for the boat file.

If not, Catalina Direct has what looks like the same faucet, but cautions the water leads are a few inches shorter, so one might have to replace some hoses if there's not enough slack.
They don't exactly give them away at $135 + Shipping.
Good luck

Gary - I found the information on source and part number. The faucet is actually a Grohe. I dealt with Watertown Supply([url]http://www.watertownsupply.com/[/url]). The hot cartridge was part number 45-883. The cold cartridge was part number 45-882. The cost was about $50. Hope this helps.

Dave thanks for the response and also taking the time to look for part numbers, now the question is repair or upgrade and replace the faucet. Incidentally for anyone interested I found Amazon offers these parts at $28 each.

GSmith,

The options are quite simple:

1. Replace the parts per Dave's suggestion.

2. Replace the entire faucet in kind.

3. Replace the faucet with a single lever unit.

Once you're in there, it'll be easy. I am, now, on our boat.

Your boat, your choice. :):):)

PS - there was another post, just today, about access from the front. Check it out.
