Lagoon Freshwater Management.

Our 440 has no isolation valves on the freshwater storage, this means if one tank gets bad water in it the whole lot's bad.

Also you cannot isolate either tank to enable you to control and manage precious water usage.

This cheap SS manifold i've made with isolation valves to pumps and each tank is simple and allows proper management.

Not sure if other Lagoons are so built but if you check and consider what a total loss of water could mean to you for the sake of maybe $60:00 of valves (no doubt others may spend $800:00 by buying titanium) LOL.

Cheers

Re: Lagoon Freshwater Management.

The reply to your post is the first post, think this individual is talking about Lagoons other than the sailing type.. Bit of confusion one thinks.

I'm a firm believer in isolating water tanks for the reasons you've stated. The thought behind allowing them to seek equal levels by joining them together is probably for weight balance that is important to many on Cats. But you are right if one tank goes bad then they both go bad. One question though on the manifold shown. Why so many valves? I understand the two blue valves, but why four of the red valves when one red valve fed to you house pressure system would seem to do the trick?

Re: Lagoon Freshwater Management.

Hi Tellie, As you say one goes to the freshwater pump, one goes to a manual lift pump in the Galley that has a carbon filter on it for drinks/or when not wanting to disturb everyone during the night by pump operation. The third goes to the 12volt freshwater flush on the de-sal and the fourth will be plugged as spare.

Adds up hey.. Cheers
