Vetus Water Systems


Fresh water on board is the most important supply for a long passage and Vetus water tanks are made of a taste-free material to ensure purity.

There is no possibility of rust build up and the tank can be inspected through the inspection lid. The liquid can be seen from the outside - the most accurate check there can be. For extra water capacity, use a flexible water tank and these can be joined to the main supply tank. To ensure you take the comforts of home with you onto the high seas, pressurised water systems ensure a constant and even flow "on demand".

Rigid Water Tanks

These tanks are supplied with an inspection lid, angled connection for filling hose (35mm), angled connection for water pump (16mm), angled connection for ventilation (16mm), two mounting straps and 16mm T-joint for interconnection. Extra inspection lid kits may also be supplied.

Fresh Water Pumps

Comparable with the piped water system at home, the Vetus pressurised water system provides constant water flow in the vessel's fresh water circuit. The pressurised tank with a rubber diaphragm inside prevents the pump motor from being started each time a supply of water is required. This arrangement ensures a minimum of noise, a constant water flow and a saving of energy.

Sea Water Strainers

All Vetus cooling water strainers are provided witha transparent cover, allowing easy inspection of the filter without dismantling. The cleaning of the filter will take only 30 seconds; due to the large active surface. However, the filter seldom needs to be cleaned. Waterstrainers 150 and 330 can be supplied with complete connection kits including waterscoop, ball valve and hose etc., and the same components are available for all other units.
