Sorry, can’t help with the leak but thought you’d find this a good read since you are anchored there:


Also, Sasha tells a really entertaining story about how they came to be on this podcast:

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] Pump running


For over a month my water pump comes on for a second,every 15 minutes or so. I have not been able to find any leaks. I just thought of one possibility, a leak in a valve for flushing the membranes ,which is impossible to determine as the outlet is at the waterline. A second possible cause I was think of is the water pump,and this is my question.Can a water pump have an internal leak allowing water to flow back to the tank,thus reducing the pressure and kicking on the pump?
