My boat came with a Paloma installed. I was not keen to have it, but it is there and so I tried it and it worked fine. I am well aware of the need to keep the hatch
over the Paloma open any time it is in use. Normally we use hot water
from the engine
or genset for hot water
, but I like the idea of having another system for instant hot water.
I only have one complaint about the Paloma (and hopefully some of you have a solution). When I run my shower
, there is not enough water flow to make the hot water heater come on. I have to run the hot water tap in the sink in the head
at the same time to make the shower
come on. I'm thinking that there are two possible fixes 1) use a shower head
with more flow or 2) modify the heater so that it comes on with less flow. 1) sounds easier, but uses more water. If anybody have any ideas.....
