Google Aqua alarm or something like that. They make lots of nifty sensors for water flow, level and temp.

Re: Did It Yet Again :Banghead:

Put a big orange streamer on the switch...cheap..Works for gear pins...put a guard and a streamer on the switch. Two chances not to mess up. Have some body yell at you when you wreck an impeller.

Sure! I can not only list them, I am intimately acquainted with every one of them! Know the feel and quirks of every one.

Two toilets = 2x intake and 2x discharge = 4

Main engine -- one cooling water intake, one discharge = 2

Genset -- ditto, 2

Blackwater discharge -- 1

Two cockpit drains

Four deck drains.



Simples!
