As (un)luck would have it, the silver oxide portion of my unit fell off sometime during last season. I discovered this just after haulout in October. Had found Ward's Marine last week to check on replacement.

Got a call from.their tech who advised the whole "pie pan" thru hull unit has to be purchased (item - 37800). Cost is hideous - $747.18!!!

Think it's time to use a homemade unit. Just can't justify that kind of exhorbitant expense. :-(

Per Seiman's information this sensor has a twenty year lifespan, so we both did pretty good with a 1988 and a 1990 boat. I'm going to reach out to Seimans directly and see if they sell them cheaper. I'll let you know what I find out.

I'm doing two things, first I'm ordering a new Siemans through hull once I find the best price as I am determined to keep my helm mounted system alive and kicking for another twenty years. Second I just ordered the corrosion reference electrode from http://www.Boatzincs.com, I already have a multi-meter and this will enable me to perform diagnostic tests on my boat that the Siemens Capac can't. Thank you for all of the advice and information, very helpful and again pointed me in the right direction.

Just got off the phone with a woman over at Evoqua, she told me the company division that sells the original replacement Capac components for our Marinette boats was Siemans but is now evoqua, she knows our system. The price for the through hull reference electrode kit is $593.00, That's more than I had hoped to hear. Contact information below.
