Re: Premature impeller failure cause
Spoke with Westerbeke today confirming the same thing that I was told by Hansen Marine. Every, hose, fitting, etc. needs to have an inside diameter of 1 inch. That includes the pipe ends on the strainer. I'm pretty sure I'm less than that on the thru hull and the strainer.
Going through the installation and operational manuals I was not able to find the Inside diameter requirement. When I spoke with Joe Joyce at Westerbeke he indicated that it is only shown on the installation drawings. The sales info had specs for fuel line size but not water. They didn't make it easy to get info.
