Our very overpriced replacement pump for the watermaker arrived but what we hoped would be a quick fix was not. We’re still making water that isn’t potable. With no watermaker repairman anywhere near here we picked the brains of anyone who professes knowledge of such systems and we have some things to check, none of which are easy and all of which Jack is grumbling about. We wouldn’t worry except there is no easily accessible potable water available on this island. We’re collecting rainwater in the meantime, thanks to our friend Ron DiCola in St. Thomas who encouraged us two years ago to devise a raincatcher system. It sure is good to have it in times like this.
