our new watermaker

No photos yet but I took Larry's recommendation and contacted Cruise RO about a replacement watermaker for our Katadyne 160 GPD unit.

Not a darn thing wrong with the Katadyne. It does it's job at 7 GPH just fine.

It's being replaced with this:

40 GPH Boat Watermaker | Cruise RO Water & Power

40 gallon per hour.

The reason is simple. As we spend more time at sea we are finding that although the Katadyne at 7 GPH can keep up, you have to run the thing pretty much all day to do it.

Although it's a DC unit it is by no means quiet. The single piston pump runs and you can hear it thump, thump, thump all day long.

With the 40 GPH unit we will be able to also do our laundry at sea, and do things we don't do now like wash sea water off of the windows (which obstructs our views when it dries). We will also be shutting down our salt water wash down system.

I was especially impressed when last night at 8:00 pm the owner of the company responded to my questions via Email. How can you beat that kind of customer service?
