Marelon Tee Fitting

Is it true that Forespar doesn't make a Marelon tee fitting?

I believe that is true. I have used Marine East fittings when I needed a tee. MarineEast -- Products

Thanks for posting that...I bought some new Marelon Seacocks, and could not find anywhere where Forespar sold t's and elbow fittings either...

I tried to find one too. Did manage to find a non Marelon T at Wholesale Marine for a holding tank refit.

Forespar does make some elbows: https://www.forespar.com/products/bo...ng-elbow.shtml They do not produce Tees.

Ronco Plastics makes good quality Tees and Elbows: https://ronco-plastics.com/product/fittings/
They also are a super source for holding and water tanks. Probably the best out there.

Bosworth also makes high quality elbows: https://thebosworthco.com/catalog/Bo...ineCatalog.pdf

(See page 6)

Re: Marelon Tee Fitting

Huh. I looked back at my order and I see that when I did my thru-hull I used Groco bronze, but not for the tee. I guess Groco doesn't make a tee either.

I wonder why the brand name manufacturers don't make tee fittings.
