Re: Dessalator HP Hoses
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Should have checked that hose when we were together. Nicholas at Dessolator gave me the fitting needed to retighten these hoses. My hose covers peeled off last year. Nicholas actually made up the new hose for me when I stopped in Antibes last Dec on my way back to MDR. He used the new type hose which he said the cover would not disintegrate over time. Be very careful trying to tighten the one you have as it could just burst off which happened to me. It was very difficult to get it back on and it kept leaking slightly until I replaced it with the new one made by Nicholas. He made it 3 meters, you should get it slightly longer, was a stretch to get it to fit.
As I said I am now dealing with 'Advance Yacht Systems" in the UK to get my Dessalator parts. have a look at their site. Alan is coming to the boat next week and is bringing my bits from them. They are shipping today for delivery to him tomorrow or Sat.
If their is some way you can order some hose and I could get it to you with the special fitting!
Or just get on to Nicholas and he will made you up a new hose.

I replaced my Dessalator hoses in Corfu recently. I got them made (next day service) with stainless steel fittings (not cheap at €270 for the pair but good quality) at a farm equipment suppliers near the old town port:
Corfu old town port was full of effluent when I was last there so my suggestion would be to anchor or berth (free) at Petriti, an attractive port/anchorage at the SE tip of Corfu. And then hire a car from Safe Car Hire, in the village.
Gouvia Marina is €87 a night or Mandraki Marina is in Corfu old town and very attractive, at €70 per night.
Hope to see you in July someplace!

Thank you for your valuable input. I just have seen by chance few days ago that the HP hose on the Membranes got some water leakage. I have tightening the screw a bit and it stopped.
The big question is: HOW LONG?
Today after your comment I have checked the hose and it seem that the hose cover is slowly peeling off as well. So I have exactly the same problem what you described.
I will certainly order new hoses as well…. Not sure where I can wait for it. I’m in the south Ionian Sea and cannot wait for parts down here.
What is your estimation from experience how many hours could the hose keep standing the pressure?

It was nice to finally meet and thanks for the drinks.
Dessalator usually stocks most of their items. They are pretty good at shipping and you should receive it in just a few a days. While you’re at it, check the condition of the high pressure hoses. Dessalator initially used HP hoses that were not UV resistant. I noticed droplets forming at one of our HP connections a couple of years ago. I tried to cut the hose back and redo the HP connector. The hose protective covering started to crumble. The connectors are designed to work with the hose covering and once the hose cover fails, so will the water tightness of the connector. If one of these fails while making water, the damage to the electronics and other items would be significant.
I ordered new hose and HP connectors and replaced all of them. From what I’ve been told by dessalator, the new hoses will not have the same issue.
Also check the bronze elbow from the HP pump to the blue pressure stabilizer canister ( if you have the 150 l/hr dessalator). Ours started leaking a few days ago. Luckily, since we have a smoke detector installed In the engine room, the moisture and mist from the high pressure leak at the elbow, set of the smoke detector and we caught it before further damage.
If you haven’t already done so, I would also recommend a smoke detector in the engine room.
