led on the boat.
Most Sundowner™ modelsareequippedwithafreshwa-

ply tank, water distribution lines and a distribution pump.

The location of the water fill for most Sundowner™ mod-
els is typically on the port side, at the stern, on top of
the deck. Others specific models have the fresh water
fill and tank located on the starboard side, at the stern.
Note: In some special cases, installation of an option
for example, could result in the water fill location being
placed in another location. See Figure J1.
The materials from which the components of the water
system are made may give the water supply a peculiar
taste, especially when new. This condition is normal and
can be reduced somewhat through the use of a water
filter; such as that produced by PuriTec™. The taste
should completely dissipate in time.
J - 2
The fresh (potable) water system should be dis-
infected prior to initial use.
The water system should be disinfected before first use
and at the beginning of each season. The following infor-
mation is a general guide to disinfecting the fresh water

WATER. DO NOT fill the system with anything
other than water. Should the system become
contaminated with fuel or other toxic solution,
complete system or component replacement
may be necessary.
The water system should be drained completely.
To disinfect the water system, use one gallon of wa-
ter and 1/4 cup of Clorox® or Purex® household
bleach (5% sodium hypochlorite solution). This is
recommended for each 15 gallons of tank capacity.
tain a close visual watch on the overboard vent while fill-
ing the water tank. Always fill the tank slowly. When the
tank is almost full, water will spurt out of the vent.
Allow to stand for three (3) hours. If time is a factor,
greater concentrations of chlorine solution will be
needed to disinfect the water system.
Drain the system.
When filling the tank, never seal the hose to the
deck plate. The tank would become pressur-
ized and could rupture.
