Scandvik faucets and showers

Recommended Posts

We love our Scandvik faucets and showers in the Oliver. Today, I found out a little info from their website and catalog:

You can order replacement parts (hoses, parts, etc.) as an individual, but only closeout items in entire assemblies, direct from Scandvik. Regular stock assemblies can be ordered online from Yacht Supply Depot at a discount of about 25% off msrp, no freight.

Looking thru the pdf catalog for Scandvik, I discovered a few things I did not know about our showers.

The one in the bathroom has an adjustable aerator. Slide it down for shower (more widespread spray), up for faucet function. The slide valve for closing off the water while soaping up for navy showers is designed to drip a little, to maintain water temperature. It is not a positive shut-off valve like the pressure handle on the outside shower.

The outdoor shower spray handle will flip up for continuous spray without holding the pressure handle down. Ours is the "Euro" model in the catalog.

Scandvik sells a height adjustable slide mount for the combination faucet/showerheads, as well as the mount that we have installed in the trailer.

Our shower and sink faucets/mixers are all brass, chrome-plated on the indoor faucets, and are real marine quality. I like that. They're built to last, like our Oliver trailers.

PS There is a single-lever replacement galley faucet in the closeouts today, chrome, for under a hundred dollars. Just an FYI, our indoor shower faucet retails for $200.00, without the mount on the bulkhead.

Thanks for sharing. I am going to add this info to my reference list.

 

Concerning the showerhead faucet:

It would be good to not hang anything on the showerhead holder except the showerhead. The holder is only connected to the fiberglass wall with a not too long screw. I found out the hard way after I found both on the floor after hanging a not to heavy accessory on the holder for what was supposed to be temporary hanging as I was cleaning and organizing inside.

Thank you so much for putting this all together, Sherry! We actually need to replace the outside Euro sprayer - as our got busted when we got into a single digit freeze while in Kansas, and weren't prepared.

a little update...

On the Scandvik website, the Eurostyle sprayer faucet is on closeout for about $85., plus shipping. Sweet deal, since it is $50 more on the distributor websites.

We ordered one for the boat. The closeout model (white) has a chrome twisty covered 5 ft. supply line, instead of the plastic only line of the usual Oliver outside shower faucet. Nice deal. scandvik.com click on closeouts. You'll find it. Sally said they had 10 in stock this morning.
