I am rebuilding my watermaker
with new gauges and pre-filter housing and I want to test it while docked in my marina. I was thinking of using 10 gallons of fresh water
as the source water
, filter it to remove the chlorine, and add some salt
to test the watermaker
and check that it removes the salt
. It hasn't been run in a year except to flush it with fresh water weekly. Is there any harm in doing that and how much salt should I add to simulate sea water (approx. 35,000 ppm.)?
