As seen in the video. Air-Cooled Karcher K2 high pressure pump. The base unit has only $89 replacement cost and a 2 year factory warranty from Amazon. This is perfect for the casual user. Draws about 900 watts at 800 psi and will run with a Honda EU2000i (1600 watt) generator. This pump will not support a second membrane.
This is a Karcher K4 pump. I highly recommend this $100 upgrade. It is super quiet and will run in confined hot engine rooms. This unit is so quiet you will not hear anything outside the engine room. It will run continuously for any length of time without overheating. It will also support 2 membranes and will produce 30 gallons per hour. Draws about 1000 watts at 800 psi and will run with a Honda EU2000i (1600 watt) generator. One common water inlet cools the motor, no additional lines required.
The second membrane will increase your production between 30 and 40 gallons per hour. When used with the water-cooled K4 it will produce 30 GPH. If you choose the stainless pump with the 2.5 HP motor you will get 40 GPH.
This option includes panel mountable pressure gauge, 3000 psi hose cut to any length you desire and all stainless fittings required. Total cost is $100 plus $10 / foot of hose. Specify if you need 90 degree elbow fittings at either hose end.

The membrane included in the kit is made by Toray South Korea and works great. If you prefer Dow filmtec made in USA add $39.00 to the kit price. Please let me know if you want the membrane pre-installed or left in the sealed vacuum bag for you to install at a later date. I have not measured any performance or longevity difference between the 2 membranes, the choice is yours.
We own the machinery and make most parts in house with 20 years in the machining business. The RO system is entirely built out of stainless, brass and plastic parts.
All components including filters and membrane can be found at your local hardware store on any on-line outlet.
At 21 Gallons (80 liters) per hour only $1595, we have NOT found a more competitive pricing anywhere. If you do please let us know. UPS ground 3-5 day shipping anywhere in the US including territories $99.00. Permeate flows for individual membranes may vary +/-20% due to temperature and other factors.
The average sailing vessel runs out of water way before it runs out of fuel. In the Bahamas you will pay 35 cents / gallon for the precious liquid yet almost 75% of our planet is covered with it.
Once you own a watermaker there is no going back, it is a game changer. You no longer have to plan your trips around water.
Shower all you want, wash your boat deck and drink chemical free water with less dissolved solids than tap water.
The system can operate on a Honda EU2000i portable generator and spare enough power to charge your batteries at the same time. Using a small Honda generator you will make ~110 gallons of water with 1 gallon of gas.
It will also run from a 12 volt battery using a DC power inverter.
Now can be enjoyed not only by the Mega-yacht crowd, but by the average cruiser.
The system is 100% assembled with non proprietary "off the shelf parts" making maintenance a breeze.
The system is assembled in Fort Lauderdale Florida and you may call anytime with questions.
The cost is 50% less than the competition due to our manufacturing abilities therefore bypassing the middleman on some components. Shop around, nobody can beat our price. Read testimonials about what existing owners have to say about our watermaker kit.
The priming pump draws less than 100 watts. I have a 20 psi 12 volt priming pump included with the kit and an optional 5 psi at 120 volts magnetic submersible for an aditional $124.
The Karcher pump draws about 900 watts, the watercooled karcher about 1000 watts at 800 psi. The watercooled option adds another $100 to the kit price. Check it out here. http://a.co/9ER4KkF
The membrane can be mounted horizontal or vertical. Regardless which brand watermaker you decide to purchase, due to the organic nature of all membranes they cannot be installed next to a hot engine. Also, the air-cooled pumps may overheat if operated in a hot engine room. The only pump that can handle heat is the watercooled Karcher model K 3.540, which I offer as an option with the kit for another $100. Check out the watercooled pump here. http://a.co/9ER4KkF
This is not rocket science.
You will need to add teflon tape to the plastic threaded fittings and some very basic tools. Some fittings already have teflon tape, however, they may still need to be tightened. Every installation is unique therefore be prepared to turn a wrench.
You can always upgrade to a stainless pump because the rest of the system is the same. If for some reason you don't like your Karcher pump simply remove it and connect a stainless pump.
It takes about 5 days to prep your kit for shipment, then UPS or Priority mail 3 to 5 days anywhere in the US including territories for $119.00. International Orders vary depending on your country.
It is recommended that you clean your reverse osmosis membrane as needed or once every two years (on average). The reverse osmosis (R.O.) membranes last an average of five years and with proper operation and care can last up to 10 years. Permeate flows for individual membranes may vary +/-20% due to temperature and other factors.
Nothing lasts forever in salt water, even the best stainless pump one day will fail. A $1500 stainless pump should last about 5 years or more, if you do the math, that is $25 /month.
The aircooled Karcher K2, is a bit more noisy but it costs $89 and should last 1 year with average use, that is $7.41 / month.
The super quiet watercooled Karcher K4 should last 2 or more years, at $199 it will cost you $8.29 /month.
The Karcher advantage is the low replacement cost, the 2 year factory warranty and the fact that you can find them anywhere.
Watermaker membranes typically last 5 to 10 years.
Being that we use standard size membranes they cost 5 times less than custom proprietary sizes. We offer 40 inch replacement membranes for $195.00 plus shipping. You may search for SW30-2540 online and compare prices, we have the lowest price membranes on Amazon.
Depends on the water quality, from a few days to a few months.
If you notice a pressure drop on the primer pump pressure gauge then it is time to replace your filters or rinse them. Also, if they look green or black or some other non appetizing color then consider the same.
Ideally you need a 20 micron and a 5 micron. You may purchase them online for about $5 / each. In an emergency use anything available at your nearest hardware store and don't worry about microns. We used 10 inch filters because it is the most common size.
