Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] watermaker filters

Hi John,

Amel told me 25 Micron on the pre filter and 5 Micron on the next filter
(closest to the pump). It's worked well for me though when heeled to port,
the inlet through hull can get uncovered causing a fluctuation of pressure
at times. I did have the water maker circuit breaker trip yesterday as the
boat tacked. This might have bee attributed to interrupted water flow

I believe that the Dessalator manual also recommends 25/5.

Perhaps my last message was not clear. It seems to me that if the high
pressure pump produces high pressures on the out side it will produce
huge suction on the in side and if it cannot get water it will destruct
something en route.
It is a pity that the documentation does not suggest the size of
filter and it may well be that 5 micron is also too small.

Best wishes, Anne and John SM 319
