Seafrost DC 5000 Install

Maybe Yes, Maybe No

After a full year of research I decided on a 1/2 hp direct drive unit. Until the mid 2000 holding plates were the gold standard. I didn't have much foresight. So we put in the dual holding plate system. Now; after 13 years of cruising we've found that it never worked as well as the calculations implied. Maybe due to the copper running form the boxes to outside, Maybe from the dual tubing runs in the holding plates. Maybe my insulation wasn't installed as well as possible or wasn't as effective as the data showed. Whatever the issue was, we've now removed the entire system and installed 3 Engels in their place.
