550 an especially valuable tool.
If water makes its way into the
sensitive components in your fuel
injection system, the results are
nearly always unpleasant and costly.
Because water lacks the lubricity
of diesel fuel, when it enters
components whose tolerances are
measured in ten-thousandths of an
inch, it invariably wreaks havoc.
The Watect 550’s unique design
prevents electrolytic corrosion of
the water sensor probe, a problem
that often results from the probe’s
exposure to water and electric
ALGAE-X ALARM HELPS YOU
KEEP WATER OUT OF FUEL
Contrary to popular belief, the
best defense against damage to
engines and injection systems
caused by water-contaminated
diesel fuel isn’t good filtration—it’s

detected as soon as it accumulates

Algae-X ( www.algae-x.net), a
leader in fuel filtration and polishing
systems, has introduced the Watect
550 water sensor alarm module to
help you do just that. The module
is designed to be used with today’s
most common water sensor probes,
available with nearly all water
separating fuel filters. The presence
