After I removed the Paloma on demand water heater I was left with doing something with the water supply and hot water output hoses:
The sinks on board BIANKA have two ways to provide water. One is by foot pumps which is what I most often use. The other is a pressurized water system which requires an electric pump to provide the water. The Paloma water heater was hooked into this system. I thought I might be able to get away with just capping the supply hose. But, as I found out after I turned on the water pump the water back fed through the hot water outlet hose. So I would need to reconnect them now that I have removed the water heater. Two 1/2 inch elbows and a short piece of 1/2 inch hose allowed that to be easily done:
I did not like the idea of the hoses just floating there so I arranged for a little more secure mounting of them. I used a Cable Tie Saddle Mount and attached it to the bulkhead:
Then used a cable tie to secure it to the mount:
With the hose secure I turned on the pressurized water pump and everything work as before except I no longer was able to have hot water. But, I have come up with an alternative hot water system that I'll be showing in the near future.
