Seacocks & Ball Valves
Is handle in upward position to open seacock?
Yes. It couldn't face down because the hull would be in the way.
Yes. But as with most of these Seacocks - the handle can be removed and reattached with a different orientation should the need arise.
Yes, up is open
could you send me typical installation it is for a well pump?
Afraid I don't understand the application. I installed seacock in the hull of my boat and connected one to the galley sink and the other to the cockpit drain.There is an excellent detail and article in Wooden Boat magazine a couple issues back. Basically, you need a piece of wood to backup the seacock on the inside of the hull and the threaded part that passes thru the hull must be trimmed (cut) to the correct length so that the seacock flange is tight against the wood backup block. The seacock flange is through bolted to the wooden backup block and not the hull. Use lots of caulk.RC
I bought the 1-1/2" seacock for an overboard discharge. The quality seems good and the ball valve operates smoothly. It's super heavy
Rugged bronze construction
Buck Algonquin seacocks are well made hardware. I only use seacocks for below waterline thru hulls. Ordinary ball valves are a poor substitute and will not properly engage the straight threads of a typical thru hull. I don't believe in trying to cheap out this type of install.
