Identify this type of connection

Can someone id this connection type? I need to replace the faucet and would like not to start dismantling until I have the correct part.

Thanks

Re: Identify this type of connection

Are you able to post what those numbers are on the fittings, looks something like
5 x 2,2 S1/??
Might be able to track it down with those numbers.

Re: Identify this type of connection

The red and blue (and maybe the white?) are PEX tubing, and the connections are crimp-on which you won't be able to duplicate without expensive tooling. I'd recommend cutting the PEX tubing and using sharkbite fittings on the replacements. Sharkbite fittings require no tools, and are available at home depot.

Re: Identify this type of connection

The red and blue lines look like Pex fittings. I have them on my boat and replacement tubing as well as a variety of fittings are available ( in the US try home improvement stores such as Lowes or Home Depot). Outside the US do a web search on Pex.

The white lines look like they come from the faucet. I would suggest unscrewing the faucet connection from the Pex adapter and buy a faucet whose thread connectors fit. Plug and play.

The smaller looks to be 3/8. You can get the "Shark Bite" 3/8 - 1/2" Pex coupling at the above mentioned store.

Re: Identify this type of connection

I don't recognize those fittings but, as you have a European boat, they may be metric, maybe 15mm not 1/2 inch. There are 15mm to 1/2 adapters. Maybe contact Hanse and ask what they used.

Re: Identify this type of connection

The crimping tool costs about $80 US. It depends on how much work you'll be doing with PEX, it might be worth it.

I purchased my pex crimper on Amazon for $26 including shipping.

That's a terrific price! My husband's a plumbing/heating guy so he probably bought one of the heavy duty ones (he usually does), so good on you!

Re: Identify this type of connection

On closer inspection the hose appears to be 16X2 metric. The connections are indeed crimp on and made by a company in Italy called Prineto. Now I just need to find a company that supplies metric adaptors to NPS. Why the world could not standardize on metric I will never understand (I actually do understand). BTW, I just finished a frame-off restoration of a 1952 MG and had to learn British Standard Thread, Whitworth tools, etc. This metric plumbing stuff is a real pain.
