We are considering a boat
that has a "new April 2019" Aqua Tec, 12 volt watermaker
The owner says that the unit worked after installation
, but he never learned how to operate it and it has gone unused for almost a year. It also appears that the unit was not preserved (with a flush and a chemical treatment?) during this time.
In addition to a membrane that might need replacement if algae and other things grew during the down period, what other issues might develop from this particular piece of equipment
sitting unused and presumably full of saltwater for almost a year?
Any additional suggestions or experiences with this system would be appreciated.
