Kevin, if you don't mind, what was the cost to put the new watermaker in, assuming you didn't do it yourself? We are getting quotes for our installation, and it looks as though we will have it done up in Seattle as not to many yards here in Portland are capable of the installation.

Don't get an FCI, proprietary parts and wayyyy to complicated. Our 700GPD with auto flush and auto TDS diverted was 10k installed.
Thanks, Oliver
