[Amel Yacht Owners] Dessalator High Pressure Hoses


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Thanks Bill,

So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that having spares for that long won't really help?

Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires "regular" tools?

Sincerely, Alexandre

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker
has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the
hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on new
hose with just simple tools.
My experience and my
experience in this group tells me these have about a 5 year
life as long as they are not exposed to caustic chemicals,
overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products. This life is not
dependent on use, but age
only.
If you happen to go over five
years, the salt water spewing in your engine compartment can
be very destructive.
The hose
on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE  100 R7
5/16" Made in Italy 
I am due for replacement and hope to get
some soon.
In my case I figure
5 meters is plenty.

We had new hoses made up it St Maarten when we passed through in 2009. The cost was outrageous. The hose was cheap but the fittings!!!!!!!

Danny, Alex, and Trevor...and anyone else,

Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there is common failure that we should look for.

Thanks Bill,

So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that having spares for that long won't really help?

Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires "regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker
has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the
hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on new
hose with just simple tools.
My experience and my
experience in this group tells me these have about a 5 year
life as long as they are not exposed to caustic chemicals,
overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products. This life is not
dependent on use, but age
only.
If you happen to go over five
years, the salt water spewing in your engine compartment can
be very destructive.
The hose
on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE  100 R7
5/16" Made in Italy 
I am due for replacement and hope to get
some soon.
In my case I figure
5 meters is plenty.

Good morning Bill,

In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to the CAT 277 pump.
It spread water up to the ceiling.

I would guess the hose that failed were the one before the membranes (because of the higher pressure).

To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from this pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a bent/turn.
I think it would be wise to install some type of device so that in case of failure the water is not spread on the water chargers, etc.
Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect the water in a less critical area.


Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also turning. I don't think it should.
How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or clean?

Sincerely, Alexandre

Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there
is common failure that we should look for.

A few years ago my hose failed at the input to the membranes, that was "repaired" by Ray Eaton, and the next time out, it failed at the pump.  I bought a hydraulic hose replacement at a local shop in Abacos, Bahamas for $75.  I ordered two replacements from Charleston Rubber and Gasket (http://www.chasragco.com/product.aspx?catid=87 ) with food-grade hoses and stainless fittings for $35 each (plus shipping).  Sorry, I'm not on the boat so I don't have the fitting sizes, but I know they are metric and "standard" thread.  The threads are the same on both ends of the high pressure hose and output hose going from the membranes to the panel in the galley.
You can probably get Mark at Great Waters Marine Systems (the US Dessalator guy) in Massachusetts to tell you the fitting size...he's very accomodating.  I should be back on the boat next week, I'll post the fitting sizes/threads then.

Good morning Bill,

In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to the CAT 277 pump.
It spread water up to the ceiling.

I would guess the hose that failed were the one before the membranes (because of the higher pressure).

To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from this pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a bent/turn.
I think it would be wise to install some type of device so that in case of failure the water is not spread on the water chargers, etc.
Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect the water in a less critical area.

Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also turning. I don't think it should.
How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or clean?

Sincerely, Alexandre

Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there
is common failure that we should look for.

Thanks Bill,



So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that having
spares for that long won't really help?



Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires
"regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker

has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the

hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on new

hose with just simple tools.

My experience and my

experience in this group tells me these have about a 5
year

life as long as they are not exposed to caustic
chemicals,

overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products. This
life is not

dependent on use, but age

only.

If you happen to go over five

years, the salt water spewing in your engine compartment
can

be very destructive.

The hose

on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE  100 R7

5/16" Made in Italy 

I am due for replacement and hope to get

some soon.

In my case I figure

5 meters is plenty.

Best,

Hello Kent,

As I wrote, I purchased my spare high pressure hoses from Mark at Great Water. I am very happy with his service and recommendations but
I thought they were very expensive… $90 for each fitting, so over $400 for 2 hoses and $100 shipping from France…
I also bought the Oring kit for HP pump 277 from him at a price of $461… since later on I found that same kit for less than $100 I was hoping to find the hose for less…

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hello Kent,

As I wrote, I purchased my spare high pressure hoses from Mark at Great Water. I am very happy with his service and recommendations but
I thought they were very expensive… $90 for each fitting, so over $400 for 2 hoses and $100 shipping from France…
I also bought the Oring kit for HP pump 277 from him at a price of $461… since later on I found that same kit for less than $100 I was hoping to find the hose for less…

Sincerely, Alexandre

A few
years ago my hose failed at the input to the membranes, that
was "repaired" by Ray Eaton, and the next time
out, it failed at the pump.  I bought a hydraulic hose
replacement at a local shop in Abacos, Bahamas for $75.  I
ordered two replacements from Charleston Rubber and Gasket
(http://www.chasragco.com/product.aspx?catid=87
) with food-grade hoses and stainless fittings for $35 each
(plus shipping).  Sorry, I'm not on the boat so I
don't have the fitting sizes, but I know they are metric
and "standard" thread.  The threads are the same
on both ends of the high pressure hose and output hose going
from the membranes to the panel in the galley.You can
probably get Mark at Great Waters Marine Systems (the US
Dessalator guy) in Massachusetts to tell you the fitting
size...he's very accomodating.  I should be back on the
boat next week, I'll post the fitting sizes/threads
then.KentSM243Kristy

Good
morning Bill,



In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to the
CAT 277 pump.

It spread water up to the ceiling.



I would guess the hose that failed were the one before the
membranes (because of the higher pressure).



To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from this
pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a bent/turn.


I think it would be wise to install some type of device so
that in case of failure the water is not spread on the water
chargers, etc.

Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect the
water in a less critical area.



Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric
motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also
turning. I don't think it should.

How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or clean?

Danny, Alex, and Trevor...and

anyone else,

Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there

is common failure that we should look for.

Thanks Bill,







So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that
having

spares for that long won't really help?







Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires

"regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker



has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the



hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on
new



hose with just simple tools.



My experience and my



experience in this group tells me these have about a 5

year



life as long as they are not exposed to caustic

chemicals,



overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products.
This

life is not



dependent on use, but age



only.



If you happen to go over five



years, the salt water spewing in your engine
compartment

can



be very destructive.



The hose



on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE  100 R7



5/16" Made in Italy 



I am due for replacement and hope to get



some soon.



In my case I figure



5 meters is plenty.



Best,

shipped them the next day.Kent

Hello Kent,



As I wrote, I purchased my spare high pressure hoses from
Mark at Great Water. I am very happy with his service and
recommendations but

I thought they were very expensive… $90 for each fitting,
so over $400 for 2 hoses and $100 shipping from France…


I also bought the Oring kit for HP pump 277 from him at a
price of $461… since later on I found that same kit for
less than $100 I was hoping to find the hose for less…




Sincerely, Alexandre

A few

years ago my hose failed at the input to the membranes,
that

was "repaired" by Ray Eaton, and the next time

out, it failed at the pump.  I bought a hydraulic hose

replacement at a local shop in Abacos, Bahamas for $75. 
I

ordered two replacements from Charleston Rubber and
Gasket

(http://www.chasragco.com/product.aspx?catid=87

) with food-grade hoses and stainless fittings for $35
each

(plus shipping).  Sorry, I'm not on the boat so I

don't have the fitting sizes, but I know they are
metric

and "standard" thread.  The threads are the
same

on both ends of the high pressure hose and output hose
going

from the membranes to the panel in the galley.You can

probably get Mark at Great Waters Marine Systems (the US

Dessalator guy) in Massachusetts to tell you the fitting

size...he's very accomodating.  I should be back on
the

boat next week, I'll post the fitting sizes/threads

then.KentSM243Kristy

Good

morning Bill,







In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to
the

CAT 277 pump.



It spread water up to the ceiling.







I would guess the hose that failed were the one before
the

membranes (because of the higher pressure).







To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from
this

pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a
bent/turn.





I think it would be wise to install some type of device
so

that in case of failure the water is not spread on the
water

chargers, etc.



Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect
the

water in a less critical area.







Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric

motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also

turning. I don't think it should.



How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or
clean?

Danny, Alex, and Trevor...and



anyone else,



Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there



is common failure that we should look for.

Thanks Bill,















So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that

having



spares for that long won't really help?















Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires



"regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker







has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the







hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on

new







hose with just simple tools.







My experience and my







experience in this group tells me these have about a 5



year







life as long as they are not exposed to caustic



chemicals,







overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products.

This



life is not







dependent on use, but age







only.







If you happen to go over five







years, the salt water spewing in your engine

compartment



can







be very destructive.







The hose







on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE  100 R7







5/16" Made in Italy 







I am due for replacement and hope to get







some soon.







In my case I figure







5 meters is plenty.







Best,

I am in Italy and just bought 5 meters of hose from a hydraulic parts shop for 40 euro, or 8 euro a meter (no invoice...you know, Italy).

Hello Kent,



As I wrote, I purchased my spare high pressure hoses from
Mark at Great Water. I am very happy with his service and
recommendations but

I thought they were very expensive… $90 for each fitting,
so over $400 for 2 hoses and $100 shipping from France…


I also bought the Oring kit for HP pump 277 from him at a
price of $461… since later on I found that same kit for
less than $100 I was hoping to find the hose for less…




Sincerely, Alexandre

A few

years ago my hose failed at the input to the membranes,
that

was "repaired" by Ray Eaton, and the next time

out, it failed at the pump. I bought a hydraulic hose

replacement at a local shop in Abacos, Bahamas for $75.
I

ordered two replacements from Charleston Rubber and
Gasket

(http://www.chasragco.com/product.aspx?catid=87

) with food-grade hoses and stainless fittings for $35
each

(plus shipping). Sorry, I'm not on the boat so I

don't have the fitting sizes, but I know they are
metric

and "standard" thread. The threads are the
same

on both ends of the high pressure hose and output hose
going

from the membranes to the panel in the galley.You can

probably get Mark at Great Waters Marine Systems (the US

Dessalator guy) in Massachusetts to tell you the fitting

size...he's very accomodating. I should be back on
the

boat next week, I'll post the fitting sizes/threads

then.KentSM243Kristy

Good

morning Bill,







In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to
the

CAT 277 pump.



It spread water up to the ceiling.







I would guess the hose that failed were the one before
the

membranes (because of the higher pressure).







To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from
this

pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a
bent/turn.





I think it would be wise to install some type of device
so

that in case of failure the water is not spread on the
water

chargers, etc.



Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect
the

water in a less critical area.







Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric

motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also

turning. I don't think it should.



How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or
clean?









Sincerely, Alexandre

Thanks Bill,















So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that

having



spares for that long won't really help?















Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires



"regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker







has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the







hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on

new







hose with just simple tools.







My experience and my







experience in this group tells me these have about a 5



year







life as long as they are not exposed to caustic



chemicals,







overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products.

This



life is not







dependent on use, but age







only.







If you happen to go over five







years, the salt water spewing in your engine

compartment



can







be very destructive.







The hose







on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE 100 R7







5/16" Made in Italy







I am due for replacement and hope to get







some soon.







In my case I figure







5 meters is plenty.







Best,

Kent,

No, I do not have any specifics on the fittings. The original fittings from Dessalator which was delivered on BeBe #387 are two-piece fittings and can be placed on the hose with two wrenches (I do not know the metric size).

I have not heard of these fittings failing, so I am sticking with them.

Hi Bill, I changed mine as preventive maintenance, I gave the wrong year it was 2010. We met Kent there in St Maarten and he encouraged me to do the change.

Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there is common failure that we should look for.

Thanks Bill,

So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that having spares for that long won't really help?

Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires "regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker
has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the
hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on new
hose with just simple tools.
My experience and my
experience in this group tells me these have about a 5 year
life as long as they are not exposed to caustic chemicals,
overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products. This life is not
dependent on use, but age
only.
If you happen to go over five
years, the salt water spewing in your engine compartment can
be very destructive.
The hose
on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE  100 R7
5/16" Made in Italy 
I am due for replacement and hope to get
some soon.
In my case I figure
5 meters is plenty.

A few years ago my hose failed at the input to the membranes, that was "repaired" by Ray Eaton, and the next time out, it failed at the pump.  I bought a hydraulic hose replacement at a local shop in Abacos, Bahamas for $75.  I ordered two replacements from Charleston Rubber and Gasket (http://www.chasragco.com/product.aspx?catid=87 ) with food-grade hoses and stainless fittings for $35 each (plus shipping).  Sorry, I'm not on the boat so I don't have the fitting sizes, but I know they are metric and "standard" thread.  The threads are the same on both ends of the high pressure hose and output hose going from the membranes to the panel in the galley.
You can probably get Mark at Great Waters Marine Systems (the US Dessalator guy) in Massachusetts to tell you the fitting size...he's very accomodating.  I should be back on the boat next week, I'll post the fitting sizes/threads then.

Good morning Bill,

In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to the CAT 277 pump.
It spread water up to the ceiling.

I would guess the hose that failed were the one before the membranes (because of the higher pressure).

To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from this pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a bent/turn.
I think it would be wise to install some type of device so that in case of failure the water is not spread on the water chargers, etc.
Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect the water in a less critical area.

Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also turning. I don't think it should.
How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or clean?

Once I get the proper fitting size and thread, I'll contact Charleston Rubber and Gasket and give them the info.  I'll ask them to keep it on file as Dessalator 60L/H High Pressure Hose for Amel Sailboats.
It's been a few years but they were $35 each last time, very good quality and quick turn around time.

Good morning Bill,

In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to the CAT 277 pump.
It spread water up to the ceiling.

I would guess the hose that failed were the one before the membranes (because of the higher pressure).

To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from this pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a bent/turn.
I think it would be wise to install some type of device so that in case of failure the water is not spread on the water chargers, etc.
Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect the water in a less critical area.

Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also turning. I don't think it should.
How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or clean?

Sincerely, Alexandre

Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there
is common failure that we should look for.

Thanks Bill,



So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that having
spares for that long won't really help?



Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires
"regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker

has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the

hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on new

hose with just simple tools.

My experience and my

experience in this group tells me these have about a 5
year

life as long as they are not exposed to caustic
chemicals,

overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products. This
life is not

dependent on use, but age

only.

If you happen to go over five

years, the salt water spewing in your engine compartment
can

be very destructive.

The hose

on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE  100 R7

5/16" Made in Italy 

I am due for replacement and hope to get

some soon.

In my case I figure

5 meters is plenty.

Best,

If I recall correctly,

You also need an additional fitting, I believe mine was an elbow to lock one part of the fitting in place while you tighten the other.

Possibly it’s just my old brain .

Kent,

 

No, I do not have any specifics on the fittings. The original fittings from Dessalator which was delivered on BeBe #387 are two-piece fittings and can be placed on the hose with two wrenches (I do not know the metric size).

 

I have not heard of these fittings failing, so I am sticking with them.

In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to the CAT 277 pump.
It spread water up to the ceiling.

I would guess the hose that failed were the one before the membranes (because of the higher pressure).

To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from this pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a bent/turn.
I think it would be wise to install some type of device so that in case of failure the water is not spread on the water chargers, etc.
Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect the water in a less critical area.

Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also turning. I don't think it should.
How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or clean?

Sincerely, Alexandre

Danny, Alex, and Trevor...and
anyone else,
Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there
is common failure that we should look for.

Thanks Bill,



So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that having
spares for that long won't really help?



Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires
"regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker

has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the

hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on new

hose with just simple tools.

My experience and my

experience in this group tells me these have about a 5
year

life as long as they are not exposed to caustic
chemicals,

overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products. This
life is not

dependent on use, but age

only.

If you happen to go over five

years, the salt water spewing in your engine compartment
can

be very destructive.

The hose

on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE  100 R7

5/16" Made in Italy 

I am due for replacement and hope to get

some soon.

In my case I figure

5 meters is plenty.

Hi Eric, sorry it was a long time ago. I remember the building but not the name. It was an engineering workshop. Because of the price I wouldn't recommend them.CheersDanny

Danny,

I used FKG hydraulic shop for my hoses.

They were quite reasonable.

Hi Eric, sorry it was a long time ago. I remember the building but not the name. It was an engineering workshop. Because of the price I wouldn't recommend them.

Cheers

Hi Kent it was that pricing that encouraged me to get some made up in St Maarten and as I said before the price was seriously outrageous.

A few years ago my hose failed at the input to the membranes, that was "repaired" by Ray Eaton, and the next time out, it failed at the pump.  I bought a hydraulic hose replacement at a local shop in Abacos, Bahamas for $75.  I ordered two replacements from Charleston Rubber and Gasket (http://www.chasragco.com/product.aspx?catid=87 ) with food-grade hoses and stainless fittings for $35 each (plus shipping).  Sorry, I'm not on the boat so I don't have the fitting sizes, but I know they are metric and "standard" thread.  The threads are the same on both ends of the high pressure hose and output hose going from the membranes to the panel in the galley.

You can probably get Mark at Great Waters Marine Systems (the US Dessalator guy) in Massachusetts to tell you the fitting size...he's very accomodating.  I should be back on the boat next week, I'll post the fitting sizes/threads then.

Good morning Bill,

In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to the CAT 277 pump.
It spread water up to the ceiling.

I would guess the hose that failed were the one before the membranes (because of the higher pressure).

To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from this pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a bent/turn.
I think it would be wise to install some type of device so that in case of failure the water is not spread on the water chargers, etc.
Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect the water in a less critical area.

Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also turning. I don't think it should.
How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or clean?

Sincerely, Alexandre

anyone else,
Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there
is common failure that we should look for.

Thanks Bill,



So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that having
spares for that long won't really help?



Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires
"regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker

has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the

hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on new

hose with just simple tools.

My experience and my

experience in this group tells me these have about a 5
year

life as long as they are not exposed to caustic
chemicals,

overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products. This
life is not

dependent on use, but age

only.

If you happen to go over five

years, the salt water spewing in your engine compartment
can

be very destructive.

The hose

on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE  100 R7

5/16" Made in Italy 

I am due for replacement and hope to get

some soon.

In my case I figure

5 meters is plenty.

Best,

I too have had a three failures over the past 12 years. The hose has never failed but the connector has. A couple of months ago I noticed the water maker pressure had dropped to just below the green band. When I opened the engine room hatch to go and investigate, at first I thought I had a fire. But it was not smoke but a fine mist caused by a pin hole leak on the connector on the high pressure pump outlet. Everything was soaked but fortunately I suffered no damage. I did spray the circuit boards of both battery chargers and all connectors with WD40 as a precaution and hosed down everything else.

Thinking more about these failures, the spray damage could be radically reduced if a piece of plastic tube was slid over the connectors and taped at the furthest end. That way any leakage would be directed down the tube and not all over the engine compartment. I will get around to this later this week.

I have also moved my membranes to below the front of the gen set for easier access and to minimise leakage damage. Previously my 110V/240V transformer got wet when the end caps eroded around the cross membrane bobbin. Since having bronze end caps made up and a proper hose connection between the end caps, I have had no further leaks.

Like Eric, I used my local hydraulic shop. The used 400 Bar hose and stainless end fittings. They charged €50 for each hose which seems good value.

Hi Eric, sorry it was a long time ago. I remember the building but not the name. It was an engineering workshop. Because of the price I wouldn't recommend them.

Cheers

Hi Kent it was that pricing that encouraged me to get some made up in St Maarten and as I said before the price was seriously outrageous.

A few years ago my hose failed at the input to the membranes, that was "repaired" by Ray Eaton, and the next time out, it failed at the pump. I bought a hydraulic hose replacement at a local shop in Abacos, Bahamas for $75. I ordered two replacements from Charleston Rubber and Gasket (http://www.chasragco.com/product.aspx?catid=87 ) with food-grade hoses and stainless fittings for $35 each (plus shipping). Sorry, I'm not on the boat so I don't have the fitting sizes, but I know they are metric and "standard" thread. The threads are the same on both ends of the high pressure hose and output hose going from the membranes to the panel in the galley.

You can probably get Mark at Great Waters Marine Systems (the US Dessalator guy) in Massachusetts to tell you the fitting size...he's very accomodating. I should be back on the boat next week, I'll post the fitting sizes/threads then.

Good morning Bill,

In my case the hose failed near the fitting attached to the CAT 277 pump.
It spread water up to the ceiling.

I would guess the hose that failed were the one before the membranes (because of the higher pressure).

To me it looks like there is a lots of vibrations from this pump. So I installed the new hose will less of a bent/turn.
I think it would be wise to install some type of device so that in case of failure the water is not spread on the water chargers, etc.
Possibly a larger hose just sitting that would redirect the water in a less critical area.

Also, in my case it seems that when the 24 volt electric motor is on for the water maker, the 220 volt is also turning. I don't think it should.
How could I solve this issue? Part to change? Or clean?

Sincerely, Alexandre

Danny, Alex, and Trevor...and
anyone else,
Which end and which hose gave way. Maybe there
is common failure that we should look for.

Thanks Bill,



So with s shelf life is 5 to 6 years, it means that having
spares for that long won't really help?



Regarding the High pressure fitting, just requires
"regular" tools?

The Dessalator 160 Liter water maker

has do it yourself (DIY) High Pressure fittings on the

hoses. The ends come off and you can install them on new

hose with just simple tools.

My experience and my

experience in this group tells me these have about a 5
year

life as long as they are not exposed to caustic
chemicals,

overuse of pickling chemicals, or petroleum products. This
life is not

dependent on use, but age

only.

If you happen to go over five

years, the salt water spewing in your engine compartment
can

be very destructive.

The hose

on BeBe is marked: ZEC VE740000 SAE 100 R7

5/16" Made in Italy

I am due for replacement and hope to get

some soon.

In my case I figure

5 meters is plenty.

Best,
