The water in FW tank suddenly became salty. What may be the cause? There is no interconnection between FW and SW systems.

  1. Salt water coul enter from the outside through penetrations in hull or deck, depending on your ship arrangement. Drain the water and conduct a tank inspection.
  2. check your Fresh Water Generator and salinometer. If salinometer is faulty or disconnected it can not prevent contamination of FW tank with a salty water in case of FWG failure.
