At long last the watermaker installation is over with the final fitting of the remote control at the chart table. Alongside the outrageously expensive and rather poorly manufactured remote (which was not even squared up on it’s faceplate so the body had to be cut in at a seriously bespoke angle to sit straight in the panel) with a basic 3 way switch. Where’s the remote pressure monitoring and production volume control? We could have made our own switches linked to an RJ45 plug for next to nothing and placed them within the right context on our main switch panel. We are unimpressed with the Ecosistems remote.
We added the flashing red led which on power up via the circuit breaker warns the crew to check that the various valves are open before running the unit. If flashing red becomes tedious we can switch to always on red or green warning lights.
