Advice Needed - Galley Faucet

I have a simple freshwater setup to my sink with a manual foot pump. I need to replace the current faucet. I bought a Fynspray spout to connect:

Only downside is that it would be great to have a sprayer for doing dishes. I have not found a spout like this for foot pumps. Would something made for pressurized systems like this work?

Would I need to buy a cold-only faucet? I haven't found any cold-only taps with a sprayer attachment.

Re: Advice Needed - Galley Faucet

I use a standard Moen sprayer on my foot pump. Great for rinsing dishes.

Absolutely NO need to get "marine" faucets or sprays. Go to your favourite hardware store.

The problem is I want both functionalities. I want to be able to easily fill a water bottle with the spout and have a sprayer to do dishes.

Re: Advice Needed - Galley Faucet

In our house we have a head that does both.
I probably use the spray option once a month (if that).
Not worth the extra cost in my opinion.
Plus one more thing that can go wrong.

Re: Advice Needed - Galley Faucet

The Head is an old (circa 1600) Nautical term for the ships toilet. Usual situated at the ‘jead’ of the ship in the belief that the water flow would help wash away anything deposited there in. So not sure I would be wanting to fill my water bottle or wash my dishes there. In the Middle east amd in South East Asia it is common to have a hose in the ‘ Head ‘ to facilitate the cleaning of the neather regions after one has used the head. Again npt the ideal location to do ones dishes or fill a wter bottle. But each to thoer own i guess. ‘ Nowt as Strange as Folk as we say in Yorkshire.

We don't always get what we want.

On my previous boat (San Juan 28) while cruising BC and Alaska solo I used a secured sunshower bag on the foredeck with a hose long enough to reach the cabin entry and the galley. When it came time to do the dishes I had the sprayer and warm/hot water to do the dishes. It worked well for the 11 years I owned the boat.
