Re: SM galley Faucet very hot.
This sounds like a brain-teaser offered up by a radio show.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
However, I will bite. On the surface of things, it makes no sense. The water tank temperature should be about what the water temperature of your sea water is. I hope it’s not due to global warming!
The route from the water tank to the pump is quite short, also quite short from the pump to your sink. Your engine room might make water a little warm in the pipes, but not that much. My best guess is that the mixing mechanism in the faucet is broken. However, that would not explain why the filtered water is also hot.
So I’m stumped. What I would do is turn the water pump off, depressurize the system, and then disconnect the cold water hose from the faucet, under the sink. Turn the water pump back on, with a bucket to catch the water. See if it’s cold, if so, then replace the faucet. If hot, then trace it back and make sure somebody didn’t alter the hoses.
You’re not by any chance in the Bermuda Triangle?
Sorry for my poor attempts at humor, I do believe your description. It’s just a bit of a stumper.
