Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Alternating hot and cold water in showers

I don't know if it's stock or not, but my boat has a pressure regulator downstream of both the pump and the accumulator. It's a tiny thing in between where the accumulator is spliced in and the line splits off to flush the desalinator. The effect is near-constant water pressure (it dips for a moment when the pressure drops below the regulator set point, then the pump kicks on almost immediately), and no variable-speed pump required. It works really well.
I have a water temperature problem of my own: my shower will be a constant temperature while it is actively spraying, but if you pause for a few seconds, the temperature changes. In the aft head, it gets hotter (as if it were set to full hot). In the forward head, it gets colder (full cold). My best guess is there is some backflow involved, but I haven't figured it out yet. It's not high on my list of priorities... it is just a split second of the different temperature before it goes back to normal. Could what you're seeing be this, Philipp, or is this unrelated?
