Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Fresh water pump runs constantly.

Don't feel like you're alone, JP,
I had a crew member cleaning the helm station while I worked on the deck. She hit the anchor wash switch and didn't recognize it. I still have a sea water wash, and have put a hose on that pump which is stored in the port locker. By the time I discovered it, the lockers were filled almost to the top with harbor water.
But then, she was sitting on the water line for a while anyway.

Hello Amel Gang,
Dumb mistake… DUMB!!
We have Xmas decos on our combing to the port side of the gangway including an extension cord for the individual light strings.
One of the other liveaboards wanted to inspect our new electronic installation and I powered all the cockpit electric busses in order to demonstrate. Guess what? the extension cord activated the anchor wash water pump switch… (we have fresh water anchor wash thus the pump ran constantly until I witnessed the big red light.)
Problem solved. :-) Thank you Bill… pump type now noted.
