"it's a marelon (black plastic like material) seacock. "
No no no no no. What part of "no" is unclear?
Marelon is not a generic word for black plastic, Marelon is in fact a damn reliable nylon type material filled with glass fibers, essentially a block of cast fiberglass, which is arguably better than bronze because it never has galvanic issues.
Every time I've heard complaints about "marelon" they've turned out to be "Well, its black plastic, isn't that all the same?" and really, SD, it ain't.
