Quick Nautic Water Heather

We have a Quick Nautic Water Heater in our Oceanis 36cc.

The heather is 13 years old and works without problems.

Wondering if anyone can guide me on when to replace it

Re: Quick Nautic Water Heather

When it leaks, the heating element fails, or you are off on that once in a life time trip. Otherwise leave it alone, other than cleaning the water supply out once a year.

Replace it when you can no longer maintain it (economically/practically).

Re: Quick Nautic Water Heather

If you use it with water that does not come from a RO process (as in a watermaker) you may want to consider adding an an anode to protect the heater from galvanic corrosion. In the models I am familiar with, this requires buyingva new heating element that can take an anode.
Newer Quick heaters come with anodes from the factory. I understand that this is to deal with corrosion problems in boats that use hard water from shore sources.
