    The Quick Connect System Fittings are made from Glass-filled Polypropylene and the piping is made from Polyethylene. They can be used to install additional outlets or to completely re-plumb a boat or recreational vehicle.

    Whale Quick Connect fittings ensure a high integrity, reliable plumbing system solution, specifically designed for use in marine applications and most require no tools for connections. Whale Quick Connect fittings offer many benefits, all ensuring a high integrity plumbing system.

    Note: It is vital that Whale Quick Connect water systems are fully winterized to prevent frost damage in cold weather climates.

    General Features:

    • Unique "Double Gripper" provides secure lifelong tube retention even at excessive pressures
      • Designed for use with Whale plastic tubing and grooved stems only
    • Collet has internal support ring ensuring O-ring seal is held in position and does not distort or leak under pressure
    • The innovative, tube supporting, "cage collet" design eliminates leaks where fittings are close to tight bends
    • High integrity single piece moulding improves the reliability and strength of fittings
    • Outer sleeve incorporates collet cover, thus preventing accidental tube release
    • No collet clips are used thus the Whale system reduces costs, speeds up installation time and ensures complete installation every time
    • The patented Whale® plumbing system is specifically designed to be used in "mobile" applications
    • Whale Quick Connect fittings and WhaleX Pipework tubing are covered for 10 years from date of purchase (Except WX1599)
    • They are designed for use with Whale plastic tubing and grooved stems only

    * BSP (British Standard Pipe) Threads
    The most common BSP thread has parallel sides, unlike the tapered sides of the common NPT thread. These threads are commonly found at the end of flexible connection tubes from faucets. The most commonly found size is 1/2 ", although 3/8" is also common. BSP threads seal on a washer, and do not require sealant on the threads.
