I'll second or third the Cruise RO system, ours is the 40 gal. A/C D/C unit, simple and reliable. Pretty much the same system as Kevin's. When anchored, We run the generator daily for a few hours to top off the batteries, so running the water maker helps put a load on the gen, that's also when we use high A/C use equipment. Coffee maker, microwave, washer/Dryer..you get the idea.
Rich is the owner, and has answered our calls right away, great customer service and probably the best price.
Good luck!

Brian, What do you currently have and what isn't it doing for you that makes replacement the only option? In your neck of the woods it appears Stella systems has everything you might need to get you back in business a la carte or prix fixe. We run two parallel systems on board and have had issues at times but never needed to consider replacement.

Thanks to all for your input, appreciated.
We are running a Spectra 400 at the moment, it is 10 years old. Just found a local to rebuild the high pressure pump which was down on pressure. We will see how that goes next week before we rush out and spend thousands on a new unit.
Thanks again,

If the rebuild doesn't work, you ought to be able to buy a substitute (not necessarily direct replacement) pump.

If you do some real cruising you should learn how to rebuild thst pump yourself. It's not difficult.

Perhaps the tech will let you watch as he/she does it this time.

There are some pretty informative videos on youtube, on rebuilding different series of the Cat Pump. I used it in rebuilding a Cat 230 pump. Cost of rebuild about 100 bucks..

Don't hesitated to ask if you need help

I have done this a couple odd times. The rebuild is really no big thing. First time plan for to five hours. Next time considerably quicker. You can get the kit with all seals and o-rings from spectra for about $100.
