Eric,

 

I have seen growth, barnacles and mussels pack the line from the sea chest to the saltwater manifold. mussels especially like this area because of the waterflow caused by the AC pump when in a marina. I have also seen blades on the metal impeller of the Calpeda pump break off. I have also seen a AC pump with a suction-side leak caused by a mechanical seal failure. Any/all of these are possible issues which can cause lack of flow. I am sure there may be other causes.

Bill,

My problem is not enough pressure. However I found the specs on the Calpeda pump, which I changed to an Iwaki pump and the specs are very similar. I have changed the membranes and the pre filters.

I will get to the bottom of this problem. Thanks for your comments.

Best,

Eric

No, all I know is what I gave you. 

 

I don't know how you could exceed max pressure if you stay at, or under liters/hour.

Does anyone have the model number of the 160 lph watermaker lift pump for the watermaker.

Is there a distributor in the USA?

Also what are the specs of the pump?

Lph , head, pressure?

Fair winds,

Eric
