Fresh Water Filter
I currently have a GE "smartwater" two element system under the galley sink, it has a dedicated spigot and works fine but the flow is very low even with new filters.
I would like to eliminate it and put a "Whole House" filter to filter all of the fresh water, to the galley and two heads.
I know normally this filter would be placed at the outlet of the fresh water pump, on my boat it would be a much easier and neater installation if I mounted it in place of the strainer now about two feet ahead of the pump, between the water tank and the pump. It would protect the pump, the water tank is higher than the strainer location so it should have some positive head. The pump I believe is a 2.5 gpm Jabsco vane type with accumulator tank.
My question is does anyone have a filter so located have you had pump problems with such an installation?
