The types of water purification plants used afloat and the problems arising from the use of high purity waters are described, as well as the accepted metallurgical requirements and accepted water treatment methods for obtaining protective scales. Problems associated with treating soft waters and other aspects of contamination of ships potable water supplies are also dealt with. It is concluded that although knowledge is growing about how to handle distilled water by increasing the hardness to give it reasonable buffer capacity and render the water less corrosive, little of this information is coming from marine sources. This Paper reviews information from alternative sources.
