Water system

Water on the water can be a delicate issue. First trace the system as you see it. I will {depending on the boat age} bet you have lines that you didn''t know existed.
Water systems must have anti-siphon loops {which shouldn''t but sometimes do} have air locks, {if not relieved} which will loop above the water line at a heel angle. Check for the three way valve, and see if you have a pressure accumulator in the system. If you have an accumulator {that gives you the temporary pressure} pump must be in line to replace the water you use.. Good luck
