In the ongoing mission that is our boat, I've finally gotten to the stage of replacing dodgy plumbing and wiring buried beneath other jobs. Today, I've serviced the water pump. It is linked to an accumulator, and the accumulator to the system via hoses instead of pipes.
Is there any reason for this (movement?) or could I just replace the dodgy-looking setup with plastic plumbing?
Entirely normal. My last Lloyd's approved boat had no solid water piping at all.
