Yeah, it's real tough stuff, but the handle isnt and the problem is an issue. They are real hard to turn to start with. Some people say they are OK if you cycle them monthly, but I'm not convinced. Too bad, like I say the housing cant be broken with a hammer. Go to a West marine
, pick up a 1.5 in Marelon valve and try to turn it!
I've never seen a chrome bronze seacock. Have seen chrome bronze thru hull
fittings though. I'd be real surprised if an aluminum
put bronze seacocks in. Those might be shiny Stainless ones. Bronze turns aluminum
to powder real fast....
