Re: [Amel] Filter Eau Mer Puisard Sensor (Sea Chest Filter Obstruction Sensor)
I meant to say hose.
I have the same setup.

Hi Eric, thanks for your reply.
I de-mounted the S shaped fitting at the top of the hose (mostly to gain
easy access) and took the sensor off, lowered the S fitting and hose to the
level of the sea chest to verify that sea water emerged and thus verified
that the line was patent. I applied suction to the base of the sensor
initially by sucking on it with my mouth and then subsequently by applying
suction with a small hand pump while measuring continuity with my ohmmeter.
No amount of vacuum would cause the sensor to achieve contact.
You used the word "hoses" (plural). Mine only has one hose, that comes off
just outside the sea chest and runs vertically alongside the fuel tank to a
small S shaped fitting and bracket that is screwed to the fuel tank wood
trim. Wish I had a picture as it would be worth a thousand words.
When Maud gets back to me I will post more.

when I filled the toilet with sea water with the sea cock closed ( mynormal
test of this sensor ). Testing the sensor showed it was corroded andIt
looks like a 1/8th inch pipe thread and is a vacuum pressure transducer,look
for. Any thoughts?<http://www.spamfighter.com/len>
