Searched old posts but found nothing as to whether I can use bronze ball valves on plastic through hulls. The through hulls are in good condition and I have bronze fittings from elsewhere, but not sure if these are compatible. :confused:

I would plan on using Teflon tape and thread compound to seat the bronze to the plastic.

I thought I may have remembered reading about the different expansion and contraction temps that these varying materials operate at.

no. a couple are below the water line and a couple are above, and given the limited access I wanted to go with valve vs. seacock right now. I know seacock is preferred.
