Thank you again for the help.

If your sea water strainer was a blocked and foul as you describe, you'll do you A/C a world of good by disconnecting the raw water lines and back washing the heat exchanger coil with fresh water. If it is an older unit, you might also want to recirculate something like a solution of RydLyme or Barnacle Buster through it for a few hours to remove the scale/crap that builds up in the coils. It will make a real difference in the performance of your unit.


"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
