PROTECT YOUR AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM INSTALLED IN YOUR BOAT

A new state-of-the-art system to keep your air conditioning system free of barnacles that settles in the water system that cools the air conditioning system.

In fact, your air conditioning system on your boat needs water to operate.

Your boat probably has a through-hull followed by a strainer and a water pump that pumps water into the air conditioning system.

This water can contain small living things such as mollusks, marine flora, barnacles or others that will eventually adhere to the piping and after a while will considerably reduce the volume of water circulating in its pipes.

Eventually, the air conditioning system may stop with an error code that says EXTREME HEAT, there is not enough water circulating in the system.

A company has developed a new system called CLEARLINE ELECTROSEA by the company INDEMAR (Italy).

Their motto:

NEVER DESCALE YOUR PIPES AGAIN WITH CLEARLINE.

This system replaces the strainer with a new system that will eliminate almost totally the famous Barnacles, no more need to proceed to a thorough cleaning of the pipes or to replace them with new ones.

This system is now installed in yachts such as AZIMUT, PRINCESS, SUNSEEKER, PRESTIGE, SEARAY, RIVIERA, FERRETTI, SANLORENZO, BENETEAU, RIVA, VIKING, OCEAN ALEXANDER, MARLOW, HATTERAS, HORIZON.

This is a proof of success for the manufacturer of this system.

Its effectiveness has been well proven so that all these manufacturers have adopted it. Since the air conditioning system is almost always running as soon as the boaters are on board, it represents many hours, much more than the hours of the engines.

However, for the engines, a complete cleaning of the system (the heat exchangers) is usually done every 5 years or 1000 hours of operation, especially when the boat is in warm salt water.

Yet, cleaning the air conditioning system is almost never done while it is running. Unfortunately, boaters often neglect this aspect.

So, think about it the next time you buy a boat.
