This video shows you how to install a marine growth prevention system (MGPS) in a yacht’s strainer. Garry Churm, a technical manager at Cathelco, the world’s largest manufacturer of MGPS systems, takes you through each step from installing the anode in the strainer lid to making the electrical connections. He then explains how to check the electrical settings and make sure that everything is working properly. Anyone who has suffered the frustration of mussel blockages in the seawater pipework serving engines will understand why a Cathelco MGPS system is a good investment, saving time and maintenance costs. Cathelco is now part of Evac, a company with a portfolio of cleantech solutions for yachts.
