Water maker installation on My 46' Hylas

(1/3) > >>

Hi John, I am seriously considering to buy a EcoSistems watermaker, compact 65/litros hour = 14 Gallons,  12 Volts , it is a company based in Barcelona-Spain,
 I make contact with many boat owners that are using their w/makers. The reviews are Very Good, the installation is very easy and the filters are cheap and easy to find.
The model that i like the most is the Water Pro compact 60, I got an estimate  today from the w/makers for 7.283.16

Thanks for your comments.

John H:
If your considering a manual RO system you might consider Sun Pure, very reasonably priced compared to other brands.

when we bought our H46, she already had installed a Spectra 200T with MPC controls.  I changed the installation to make it more compact, to save storage space, etc.  But still be maintainable.  The module with the membrane and clark pump went on the starboard side in the foward cabin, under the little desk.  useless space for storage, but the watermaker fit!  Also put the shurflo pump and accumulator in here.  the prefilters are at the back of the small locker, under the liquor cabinet.  Water intake and raw water screen under the forward cabin floor.  MPC control box under the starboard side salon bench, far forward.  I agree about getting a manual one,  simple is better, for remote areas.  I'm in the process of trying to convert ours to  be manual. 

The manual Spectra system is significantly lower in cost, but my understanding is that the automatic parts have reliability problems. We pickle our system twice a year as we move into poor water. It isn't difficult, nor is the maintenance when the system is running. The operating instructions are easily understood.

Hi Burton, thanks so much for your comments, wonder why do you recommend the manual system/ it is probably cheaper - a good thing. But , can you be more specific,
we are leaving the boat docked or in boat yards in europe for at least 6 months every year.
will like to go with a system that has the easiest maintenance.
Thanks again.
