Faucet thread size and pitch
« on: March 25, 2015, 11:41:12 AM »
Anyone know the thread size for a perlick faucet?  Not the tap handle threads but the faucet itself.  Thanks in advance

Dunno but I'm curious why. What are you planning?

I had an issue with an old kegerator that was made in Spain I think.  It was a Vissani.  American faucets would not work on it.  I had to replace the tower.  Obviously I don't know if this issue is why you were asking but that is what came to mind - if you are dealing with a metric tower, good luck!

Looking at a tower from Europe on eBay.  Pretty sure I'm going to want forward sealing faucets and I don't know if perlicks will fit.  Seller doesn't seem to know thread size/pitch

Does it run on Europe power? I'd do more investigation just to be sure.

I don't want to power it but I would want to switch to forward sealing faucets

Yeah I'd make sure.  It could be that perlick makes metric and standard.
