Unique ‘Double Gripper’ design provides secure lifelong pipework retention even at excessive pressures
The innovative ‘cage collet’ eliminates leaks where fittings are installed close to tight bends
Collet has internal support ring ensuring o ring seal is held in position and does not distort or leak under pressure
High integrity single piece moulding improves the strength of the fittings
Outer sleeve incorporates collet cover, thus preventing accidental pipework release
Collet clips are not necessary and therefore reduce installation time
Pipework includes measured cut marks, designed to be a visual guide to ensure that fittings are pushed fully home
Whale Quick Connect Semi-Rigid Pipework
Whale Quick Connect colour coded semi-rigid pipework is available in 12 mm, 15 mm, and 22 mm sizes in standard or high performance (Whalex) PE materials.
The pipework’s flexibility enables tight bends to be formed, hence reducing both the number of fittings and time required at installation. Whale Quick Connect
semi-rigid pipework offers the integrity of metal, but the usability of plastic, and is fully tested and recommended for use with the complete range of Whale fittings
(see pages 82-83).
Minimum Bend Radii Recommendations
All grades of Whale Quick Connect semi-rigid pipework are flexible and can be bent into a tight radius to facilitate easy installations.
This reduces the number of fittings required and the cost of the total water system.

Minimum Storage Temperature
The minimum dry storage temperature is -40 ºC (-40 ºF)
Note: It is vital that the system is fully winterized to prevent frost damage.
WARNING: Temperature Settings – To prevent scalding, (regardless of the water heating method or the control
devices used), the temperature for the hot water supplied to the faucets and showers should be controlled in the
range of 50 ºC to 60 ºC (110 º F to 140 º F) with a fail safe set at 82 ºC (180 ºF).
CAUTION: Ideally, the temperature should be set at 46 ºC (115 ºF) for health and safety reasons, higher settings will increase the risk
of scald injury. Those at greatest risk of scald injury include children, the elderly, disabled, and diabetics.
Fail Safe Controls
WARNING: In a typical marine installation, it is vital to incorporate primary and fail safe controls for water temperature
and pressure. Please see list below:
PRIMARY CONTROLS:
Thermostatic Mixer Valve: WX1599B
Pressure Switch: WU7207(B) - In-Line Pressure Switch or included in the Universal Pressure Pump (see page 77)
Pressure Regulator: WX1595B - Pressure Relief Valve - 6 bar 1/2" Female
Expansion Vessel: Accumulator Tank
FAIL SAFE CONTROLS:
WX1595B - Pressure / Temperature Relief Valve
For typical installation of these necessary controls see page 55
For a full list of our part numbers see pages 92-93
For advice on specific installation requirements contact Whale - see contact details
Note: The patented Whale Plumbing System is specifically designed to be use in "mobile" applications. Whale Quick Connect fittings
and Whalex pipework (any) are covered for 10 years from date of purchase (except WX1599). For use with Whale plastic tubing and
grooved stems only.
