I am trying to install a new faucet on the boat
and am running into a few issues. I searched on the forum, but couldn't find a clear answer to my question.
I have 5/8 hose for my fresh water
system. The faucet is a NPS-M 1/2 inch connector (straight threads) All the hose barb fittings I have been able to find online are 1/2 inch Female NPT (tapered). I believe the NPS-M fittings require a rubber gasket
on the bottom to seal properly, but I'm not 100% sure here. I don't think I can just run the 1/2 NPT connectors onto the 1/2 NPS connectors. I need something to convert from 5/8 inch hose to plug
into the NPS-M 1/2 inch connections on the faucet. Do you have any recommendations here? It seems like others would have run into this issue as well.
I am in Mexico
so will need to get parts
shipped in to finish this installation
so there isn't a home depot close by.
