    3288 potable water level sender unit-gctid803499

    Well I think I figured out why my water tank is always reading empty. Does anyone have a good suggestion for a replacement for this old soldier?

      I have a replacement that is 6 months old and I have no use for it anymore since my tank is toast. I'll give you a good price.

        After reading the first post I was going to mention since you already have gone this far in your project that now might be a good time to examine your water tank. These things are notorious for leaks as many of us can tell you.

        On tank I had baffles spot welded on the inside of the tank for sloshing while underway. The spot welds were stressed and let loose.

        There are a few companies that make a good plastic replacement tank.

        If you just want to go the sender route they sell several sizes on ebay.

          James, are you out here on the westcoast? Please PM me. I think at this point I would just like to replace the sender and be done with it.

            Put this one in my plastic tank and it has worked fine. They will need the depth of the tank when you order. http://www.wemausa.com/sensors/level...l#.WPGhk9QrLUI (SUS 316 Stainless Steel)

              Just curious as to what you have for a plastic tank?

                  I'm not sure of the brand or if it is original it was in the boat when I bought it. My 3288 is a 1995. Another thing you might think of is putting a clean out access port in the back half of the tank at the low spot. I put one in and was really surprised at what it looked like in there when I cut the hole. It also makes it real easy to empty the tank for winter storage. I can't show pictures as the boat is rapped for winter but I might be able to send some the end of the month. I live in Alaska and we still have plenty of snow in the interior. I don't remember seeing any writing on it but I can look again when I prep for summer.

                    1stshop, That sounds like a good idea for the winter layup. I bought a cheap endoscope from Light in the box online. I used it to try to see into my fuel tanks to help me determine if there was a sludge layer or if I could get a general idea of what shape the inside of the diesel tanks where in. I did get some decent views but I had no control over how to direct it. Now that I have access to the top of the tank I think I'll poke it in there and see what I can see. The aft access hole sounds like a very worthwhile idea.

                      For a plastic tank I use the TechEdge sensor(s) that I am very happy with. I have the sensors on my black, gray and clean water tanks, all coming to a singe monitor.
