This may be a stupid question but;
I am thinking about adding a filter to my Catalina 400.
Should one install the filter directly after the pump ( I have a small accumulator tank just after the filter) or just before the cold water faucet in the Galley?
1. Just after pump
This would mean that both hot and cold water would be filtered and water for both head faucets, showers and cockpit shower water would be filtered.
2. In the cold water line just before the galley faucet
This would mean that only the cold water in the galley faucet would be filtered and filtration would occur just before the faucet.
I am thinking option number two as the amount of filtered gallons would be reduced and the filter would last longer. I am also thinging that it would be enough to have drinkable, filtered water in the galley only (not heads)
Another question - there is limited space to install the filter - can the filter be mounted horizontally or does it have to mount vertically?
