Re: Excessive usage of water maker membranes

Craig Briggs
 

Right, Alan - an often misunderstood point. You can indeed use your watermaker in fresh water (or brackish) perfectly safely - but not at the full pressure you use for salt water. Just do not exceed the flow rate of the membrane - slowly bring up the pressure until you get full flow and stop. 
Cheers, Craig

Re: Cleaning the prop

eric freedman
 

I usually use dilute hydrochloric acid on my prop. If comes out quite clean.

Be careful not to inhale the fumes.
Many spots need repeated acid washing until there is nothing left to remove.
On some spots that are large , when the acid stops foaming it is time for
new acid.

I then use fine emery paper and my prop always comes out like new.
I do this every 2 years when I haul to change the prop seals.

Alexander,

Take the prop to a place that has a soda blaster. It'll cost a minimal
amount and can be done while you wait.

My only thought is like others, make certain that there is no chlorine. Obviously, there shouldn’t be if all you do is make RO water. Do you ever put water in the tank from the marina? We often have both RO and shore water, tough to tell how much chlorine, although you can buy test strips. I will sometimes flush with a couple of gallons of RO water drawn from the control panel tap, rather than flush with water from the tank.

 

 

This details some of what can go wrong, including post-mortem pictures. Interestingly, there are several causes for physical damage to the membranes (as opposed to chemical) that might have some bearing on your issue.

I need a little help with water maker usage and maintenance, please.

 

Cream Puff has a 24v D60 water-maker. My problem is we seem to be going through membranes at the rate of a pair a year. I have read where others have used the same set of membranes for years and still get drinkable water. This is not the case with us. We are in our 5th year of full time cruising and are now on our 6th set of membranes.

 

When I last change membranes in Colombia, this was about March 2019. Our current membranes are just over a year old. The PPMs are starting to creep up a bit now and we have gone from the 300 range to the 500 range. We notice a change in drinking quality over 600 PPMs. This is when we usually change the membranes.

 

We run the water-maker at least once a week when in a marina, flush it with the fresh water rinse. I have a double charcoal filter set up for the tank rinse. When on anchor it is run just about every day. I am careful to watch the pressure and water making float gauge. I normally set it at 55 liters per hour and this put the pressure in lower side of the green range.

 

Any ideas why our membranes are not lasting or why our PPMs creep up?

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark
