"So what was the problem that necessitated replacing the watermaker with a different make ?
We had a Schenker on our previous boat and it was a great performer...
I'm afraid I am at too much of a handicap to say. I haven't actually seen the watermaker, have not worked on watermakers myself, and, although I listened to the phone
discussion, I couldn't make sense of comments like "which direction is that valve on top turned?" when the only thing I could see was the telephone in my hand.
I suspect this has less to do with a particular brand of watermaker and a lot to do with last minute fix attempts when you are out of time late on a Sunday.
If I learn an answer down the line, probably months away, I'll try to post it. Suspect I never will.
Thanks to all,
