    Good morning Tellie,
    Newhaul suggested that I talk to you. Do you know anything about the spool valve on a Powersurvivor 35? When the cleaning head is on water seems to circulates ok. When the regular head is on it builds up enough pressure to stop the pump. water comes in a steady stream from the tank discharge until the pressure dissipates. NO water exits as brine discharge. Doesn't this point to the spool valve? Katadyne won't even let me talk to a tech since it is discontinued.

    Morning Tellie,

    It was suggested I said 'hello'.

    I asked a thorny question about Spectra - definitely one that would disqualify me from the warranty!

    It is partly an Engineer's curiosity that drives me to ask - trying to see if I understand the system right.

    Cheers, Andy

    Hello Tellie, I have a Newport 400 with 1830 hrs on it.
    Salinity 550, Feed Water PSI 98-104, strainer OK, brine water output 3 gpm, Prefilter showing midway between good and replace, only getting 11 to12 GPH Product Water. What could be wrong? Is it possible to contact you? Jim Wengler

    Hi Tellie: I have a Spectra Catalina, probably a 2004 to 2006 vintage...I think, not sure. Here is what is happening...I start the system, after about 5 minutes, the pump noticeably slows down...you can hear it, to the point that it pretty much stops. There is an overflow outside the boat as normal, I switch it to "manual" no change. I have not as yet checked the voltage at the pump....it just started doing this. Our boat is in Antigua, the watermaker guy there says he has never encountered this before, to contact Spectra tech and see what they say....I thought maybe I should run this one by you first. There are 1400 hours on the system, I put in all new filters, even though the others were all good, just in case....to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Tellie - what happened with spectra since they owned by Katadyn ? I wait for spare parts since months. Should I complain once at catadyn here in my neigborhood ?? Or what is your experience ?? I'm Swiss - but not sure if they know what it means to deal with yachties ......

    Hello Tellie,
    I have purchased a second hand Catalina 300 (MKII?) Spectra. I am wondering what the differences are between the 300 and the 300 MKII? Also, I understand you sell replacement membranes? And various other filters?
    Thank you Doug SV Drakus lying in Oriental NC

    BRAIN PICKING TIME PLEASE.

    I have just been 'gifted' a Clark pump & 40" membrane off of a hurricane wrecked boat here in St Martin. I want to get it working again can I buy all the bits from YOU

    I have no idea which model this was? Are the Clark pumps different on the various models or is it the other bits that make the models different?

    I was thinking two feed pumps With an option to switch one or both on. I will need all the gauges hoses and fittings for a manualy controlled version. I can/could buy all the ironworks and felxible mounts to mount the pump and the membrane as a single unit.

    Also I am probably looking for an electronic TDS meter as well as twin flow gaguges/meters.

    You do seem like an EXPURT!!! so as I truly hate reinventing the wheel I thought I should ask yourself. IF you would prefer I went 'public' with this so that the whole community can benefit (AND COMMENT :-( ) I am quite happy to post on the forum.

    Tellie,
    ever hear of an ASC watermaker from the 80's? It was fully automatic but I have no paperwork for it.


    Thanks,
    Terry

    Good day just after your opinion re the Z- Ion Membrane Protection System is it really worth retrofitting to a 150?
    cost about $1500 in Aus
    Thanks

    Hello Tellie !!
    Does a Dow Filmtec membrane SW30-2540 fit in a Spectra Newport 400 watermaker?
    Thank you for your help....
    All the best from the Austrian Alps - Gerhard !!!
