I'm looking for expertise with the spectra catalina
or similar. I'm still at the level of identifying the component parts
of the system. I probably shouldn't be allowed to have nice things like this.
We got the unit with a boat
we bought last summer. It worked well last year once Halden Marine
Services checked it over and reconnected the control panel
that had a broken connecter.
We "winterized" it following the instructions with a potable antifreeze
, but this season (Maine) we're having trouble restarting it. It turns out that I powered off the control panel
but did not shut off power to the unit itself. Now it will run a "flush" with seacock open (flushing fails "service prefilter" with seacock closed), but never offered to "purge" automatically and instead restarts twice and reports "system stalled". Is there a way to force a reset to make it purge, or is there something i should do to check for an air lock of some kind? Or could we have some other, new issue, like a flow pump
problem or blocked fresh water
One thing we noticed when recommissioning the fresh water
system was a steady slow flow from the brine discharge if the valve was open at the carbon filter (from fresh water into the watermaker). So i've been leaving that valve turned off except when trying to flush and run the watermaker
