ARAMIS has a pressurised freshwater system feeding the galley, heads and cockpit shower.
To minimise fresh water consumption a saltwater rinse is available in the galley.
Two Vetus fresh water tanks are installed in the forepeak. We believe that these are 40 litres each.
The tanks are filled from a filler amidships starboard. Originally, this filler was on the port side, however, to enable installation of the black-water holding tank, it was moved.
The tanks vent through a hole on the port bow.
Fresh water pressure is provided by a Jabsco Flojet pump mounted under the port forepeak bunk and the salt water a 4l/min Shurflo pump mounted under the galley sink. Both pumps are actuated by a pressure drop from opening the respective the outlets.
The saltwater pump is protected by a filter accessible from the engine compartment.
A neat, but tight, installation under the forepeak bunks.

It may have been better to have a foot pump on the galley sink to control fresh water consumption, however, there is not sufficient space without significantly modifying the cupboard under the stove.
