Then again, I've got a FCI unit on this boat. It's one of their basic Aquamiser units. No fancy electronic controls. Which is the way I like it. They don't seem to have much of any proprietary parts other than the circuit board, as do most other brands as well.

We bought it low hours used and after replacing the circuit board it's been trouble free.

I used almost every brand of water maker out there at one time or another. And I've found them all to be pretty trouble free and reliable if you stick to the basic units without all the electronic bells and whistles.
