RE: Sea Recovery Watermakers
I have had a few Sea Recvovery RO water makers on various Anchor Handlers that I have worked on and have had some serious problems with them, mainly with the electronics.
One in paticulat recently could not get it going again even with new cards from agent and the help from our on shore electronics tech.
On my own boat I have a bog standard simple RO unit, 2 x 40" membranes, s/s HP pump, standard 240 V Onga low pressure pump. (120 lt 30 gal/hr)
Start it up, screw down pressure to 800 psi, run for approx 10 min to bilge , taste water then switch to FW tanks.
Installed for about 1/2 the price of a big name maker.
Probably the same in the USA there are local makers of RO systems with low overheads and simple to operate systems.
have recently fitted a cheap ($70.00) 2 pick up TDS meter that lets me know when the produced water is below 400 ppm.
