I recently posted a thread on holding tank
sizing after which I decided to enlarge my tanks
....ten gallon waste to 31gallon. This meant that I needed to move my water
tank to opposite side of the boat
, so at the same time , I decided to increase that tank from 18 gal to 31 gallons. In doing this , I will need to mount my hot water heater
above my fresh water tank
. Fresh water tank will sit basically at the same level where the water heater
was originally mounted. I plan on installing frameworks around the water tank and then mount the hot water tank above the tank. Hot water tank will sit approximately 14 inches higher than originally mounted. Hot water tank has heat exchanger
connections and 110V coil. I
After reading some posts here, I am concerned about my water heater heat exchanger
and its new location being too high, in relation to the engine(Mercruiser 350 Mag, raw water
cooled only). Do I have to worry about airlocks? Will the engine
pumps be able to circulate the water okay?
Thanks in advance.
