Re: Fresh water foot pump

I'm curious where you installed your three way valve in this setup. Is is accessible without having to go under the counter? I'm installing my plumbing system next week and would love to avoid having another faucet at the galley sink.

Thanks for the great idea!

It is under the counter. For us, it's easy access next to the pull out trash bin.

Brillante idea, the three - way valve seems like the goods. I will still turn off the pump when not in use. I would love to have only manual pumps in the galley. I cringe every time someone offers to wash the dishes!

We're putting it off until after a pending haul -out, stripping to gel coat, filler, epoxy, anti fouling, anodes, sea cock checks...

Sailing is soon romantic!
