I have a problem with my Dessalator D60. It dumped my water tanks overboard
on a passage
last night and now if I try to put water
in the tank and turn on the pressure pump
it appears the water is getting send out through the watermaker raw water
Anyone have this model and have experienced this issue?
I had noticed recently that the auto-flush cycle took longer than it should, inasmuch as the freshwater pump
ran for a few minutes after shutting down the watermaker
rather than 30 seconds. I didn't think too much of it, and this morning after an overnight passage
I ran the watermaker for a few hours and when it was done I very foolishly let it shut down in auto flush mode, I listened and thought the freshwater pump wasn't running but that was masked by the diesel
engines running and in my sleepless state I wasn't being smart about it. At any rate, it emptied my tanks
, and now I can't turn on my pressure water system without it flushing
the water oveboard as described.
I can try to cap off the pressure water feed so I at least I can fill my tanks with shore water until I can figure this out, but I wanted to see if anyone had experienced this before and has an idea of what's not working?
