Location of diverter valve for fwd head/deck wash
I am going to be putting in a deckwash system. Its a Jabsco hot shot 6, 70psi.
However, I only have one thru hull in the forward part of my boat, a Marine Trader 41.
The one thru hull available is allready used for the forward head, I intend to tee off of this one. With only one thru hull I will need to have a diverter valve. Either the water goes to the head or the wash down system. The question I am posing is placement.
If I hide the diverter valve behind a cupboard, it is esthetically pleasing, but it is not obvious upon entering the head that the head can be used. If I put the diverter valve in view beside the head it is obvious the head or deckwash systmem can be used, but it is esthetically messy.
What does the trawlwer forum have to say about the placement of this diverter valve. The valve in question is a 3/4 inch stainsless steel 3 position ball valve.
If anyone can post pictures of how their diverter valves look, I would appreciate it.
The obvious solution of putting in a second thru hull is understood but I don't intend to hual the boat this season or the next.
