Mermaid Condensator Alternative
I've been struggling with the Pacific Condensate Pumps in my boat being prone to failure. It was suggested to me to look at the Mermaid Condensator, but I thought the price was a bit outrageous for what it is, a venturi pump. So I did some googling and found something that looks suspiciously similar(I think it is exactly the same). It is a Chemical Injector made by Dema, model 204C ,the 1/2" NPT version, and is a fraction of the cost. It comes with 3 different orifices that are inserted into the bore.
My question, is anybody familiar with the Mermaid? My concern is the small bore diameter and the potential restriction to water flow that this Dema has. Is the Mermaid the same in this respect?
Finally I do have existing filters,but could use a source for new ones.
