    Tellie, I have a boat in the Pacific Northwest that I hope to take south in the fall. I am looking for a good used manual Spectra watermaker in the 400 g/day range. Are they ever available, or do I bite the bullet and buy new? ~ Erik Dolson

    Hi Tellie, CF forum members sing your praises as the Spectra Guru, so I thought I would reach out with a problem I'm stuck with. I have a Spectra Santa Cruz model that was recently professionally reconditioned (new membrane and pumps, rebuilt Clark, etc. and I can't get the pickling/cleaning procedure to work because it won't suck anything from the bucket. It worked before, and I've checked all the valves, etc and can't find anything wrong. I even tried work-arounds, such as bypassing the service valve and no joy. No leaks, good pressure. Any ideas?

    Hi Tellie - I saw your posts about Spectra watermakers. I will be buying one soon. How do you determine which watermaker is right for a client? We have a 2010 Leopard 46, purchased last month. We will mostly be two people live-aboard for 6 to 8 months each year, cruising the So Pacific. May have up to 4 guests occasionally. We have a 9kw generator and will be getting at least 1200 watts of solar. We are in San Diego now.
    thanks

    Tellie, I'm on a boat in Hollywood Marina. Do you do repairs on Spectra? My boat has one which didn't work when I bought the boat. I am interested in getting it working.

    Hi Tellie.

    Are you running a boatshow sale on cape horn watermakers this week? I see there's a show in Lauderdale right now.

    We spoke at the Miami show last year, I'm sure you remember me. ��

    Cheers.
    Paul.

    Please Tellie, can you tell me if it is possible to have drip leak between the composite cylinder and the base on a Clark pump. I have replaced the pipes and fittings directly below this joint and redone this many times to still get a small drip with each piston stroke with pressure. If the pressure relief valve is open there is no drip. This joint seems to be permanently sealed and obvious way to get it apart. Thanks for your time and expertise.

    Hi Tellie, do you ever get your hands on a used or reconditioned Spectra or Katadyn 12 volt model? I have a smallish boat (28' Morgan Out Island) so limited space and even more limited budget. I know these items can get very pricey new. Thanks for any info on this. Christa

    Hi Tellie, I posted a problem in the plumbing forum for all to see but I really think you're probably the only one who can help me.

    Hi Tellie
    I read one of you posts where you said you had an inexpensive solution to implement the functions of an autoflush for a watermaker. Could you tell me what it is and how it works?

    Thanks
