Greetings

I'm replacing most of the plumbing on my boat. Most of the fresh water ball valves are under the sink; the hose/valve connections are currently fastened to the bulkhead with bell hangers (do a google image search for "copper pipe bell hanger" if you want to see exactly what I'm talking about). What would be a more appropriate way to affix the hose to the bulkhead? Stainless straps?

Any of you experienced marine plumbers (amateur or pro) have suggestions?

Thanks

Gary

Nothing wrong with the bell hanger but strapping or "plumbers tape" will take less space. The only problem is that they don't make it in stainless, only copper and galvanized. You could also you PVC conduit straps. Non corrosive, dirt cheap and also takes less space.

Or, you could use cable ties and cable tie mounts. WeldMount makes some that will support quite a bit of weight using their methacrylate adhesive, and would eliminate the need to drill screw holes everywhere. :)
