Re: Jeanneau SO42DS 2008 – Salt Water in Bilge – HELP!

Well...just when I thought this was over... The same salthingyer leak at the wet muffler reared it ugly head again, so pulled it apart one more time! It seems the thread sealer…Tru-Blu Pipe Thread Sealant, while stating it was suitable, was not. It deteriorated in hot salt water and the diesel gases and attacked & destroyed the “O” ring. I cleaned both threads thoroughly, applied Permatex 99839 ULTRA BLACK (it is a silicone & oil resistant) at the suggestion of my local service yard, as that is what they use. I replaced the “O” rings (Silicon O-Ring with temperature range of -65° to +425° F; Durometer hardness of A70; 0.139” Diameter thick x 3.359” ID and 3.637” OD).
Once again it is fixed…Let’s hope I don’t have to update this again.

TDS Meter EZ to test for water in the bilge to see if it is salt water.
Numbers on the meter read with a range 5,880-5,960 ppm. We tested some sea water with a reading 8,880 ppm. Is the reading high enough for me to assume Yes there is salt water in the bilge?

Simply dip your finger in the water...taste it and you know if it's salt or fresh water. No need for a meter...just something extra to store or carry.
