Cockpit Shower Valve Replacement - 1992 C34
« on: August 17, 2014, 02:29:33 PM »

I have a 1992 C-34 with a walk-thru transom and I need to replace a valve on the cockpit shower.  The hot water valve was hit by something and now appears to have a small crack in the assembly that the water comes into the valve. I went to Catalina Direct and they no longer stock the valves, but only the entire shower assembly.  I would prefer not to buy the entire shower assembly, but simply replace/repair the valve.  I noticed the break while putting the boat away for the weekend, so did not have a lot of time to investigate. So, I don't know the extent of the damage...appears most of it is plastic, so I am assuming it could be tough to find replacement parts at the hardware store....I am assuming several of you out there have come across a similar problem...ANY ADVICE?

Don't assume it will be a tough find at the hardware store.  I once had to replace a plumbing part on a 1971 boat (about 15 years ago).  I was quite surprised to find the part at my local hardware.

Another place to look is online RV parts stores.   I was researching for the same replacement a few years ago and found several candidates.   I did not replace because the faucet was not actually bad. Long story!!

I have the same project lined up for our 1993 model (cracked valve, in this case due to an unexpectedly early freeze).  I found this source online, but haven't confirmed that it's the exact model- but the dimensions and shape look correct.

I need to do the same to my 93.  Did you try that valve with success?

I don't know if this is close to what you have but have a look - https://ssicustomplastics.com/products/?route=product/product&path=91&product_id=145.  SSI makes the cockpit showers for  the C350.

I couldn't find a replacement valve but did find a shower assembly the same size...

At least it appears to be the same size.  I haven't pried the old one out yes.  It's so stuck, I'm afraid it may be installed with 5200.
