Re: Watermaker end cap removal; Dessalator D160

If it isn't one thing, it's another.  But more likely both at the same time....

Another method for removal of the membrane end caps that is a likely to be a bit more gentle to the parts is to attach a fresh water pressure water hose to the salt water inlet, fill the housing with water until it overflows from the brine outlet, then block the outlet with your finger.  Even a little pressure, and the caps just slide  right off. 

Note, do NOT do this with air pressure, the endcaps will launch off at high velocity!
