Catalina 28 water system upgrade
The fresh water system on our 1992 Catalina 28 is in serious need of updating.
The original Shurflo 2.8GPM pump sounds like a diesel and the hoses are
disgusting , some clamps are rusty! To replace the existing is just time and
money but after looking at the maze of hoses,clamps and fittings I'm keen to see if I can simplify/update the design. I have removed the tanks and cleaned them and am now looking at prices/ideas on a couple of quick connect systems.
My idea is to build a couple of headers for the hot and cold distribution, and
relocating the pump so it is easier to access the primary filter for cleaning.
I wonder if anyone out there has done this and can pass on some advice or
