bluesail 1 Posted December 12, 2019 Share Posted December 12, 2019 Hey all, On my final stages of sorting a new boat deal. The boat in question had a small hot water cylinder mounted above the engine. (Volvo MD2-55) Apparently the tank blew up or leaked and they removed it. I’ve searched around and found things like the Isotemp 30L cylinders which can mount in either direction. Uses both heat exchanger coils and 220v which is great. However, this got me wondering how the heck do you deal with legionnaires when water needs to be kept above 60c? Sure if you’re on shore power that is not hard. But when sailing (not motoring) how do you ensure you tank water doesn’t grow bad things? And just getting hot for short duration doesn't sound safe either, would reckon it needs to be kept hot for a while to be really safe? Thoughts comments? Quote Link to post Share on other sites
