I have a new to me, 2004 Riviera 40with a Spectra Newport
maker fitted. The unit shows 185hr of operation in total and I am unsure of what usage or maintenance
the unit has had.
I have changed the pre filters and cleaned the sea strainer but cannot get the unit to pump
. Seacock is open, pressure relief valve open and pump
. I do get water flowing via the brine discharge when doing a fresh water flush so I don't think it is a pump priming issue.
I suspect the flow when fresh water flushing
is due to the main house sea water pump
rather than the pump from the water maker.
Can anyone shed any light on this? It would seem to be a problem with the pump although it does sound to be running normally.
