Can someone identify this fitting type?

I am trying to replace a 12v solenoid valve (normally closed) which supplies fresh water to the windshield washers. It is a Goyen solenoid but of course when I search for the part number on the solenoid, nothing with these fittings comes up.

I could just get a standard 12v, 1/2" solenoid valve, but if I could get the same valve with similar fittings, it would make the connections to existing copper much easier in restricted space available.

Your assistance is appreciated

I cannot seem to identify these fittings

The fittings shown come with that valve.
The outboard ends look like 1/2" male pipe.
Any 1/2" valve will have either male or female (or barb) in/outs so you can adapt it to your existing copper fittings.

If the space is really cramped you can use PEX or similar adapters
with a short piece of hose.

Try Jabsco numbers 37038-1012 (12volt) or 37038-1024 (24volt).

I think the fittings/connections are called QEST -- which might be an acronym of some sort. Or might be the original patent holder.

We've had Jabsco freshwater pumps/accumulators on our previous boat that use those fittings... and they're kinda nifty.

We also had a Jabsco solenoid that controlled input water to the Quiet Flush electric freshwater toilet on that boat. I think that used QEST fittings but my pics aren't quite clear enough to tell for sure.

Edit: Ah, I see now, @Irene's link is the solenoid we had.

Jabsco pump fittings would be my first guess too.

Thx to all. Turns out these are called Flojet quad fittings by Qest.
