The Honda EU2000i Generator can power the SeaMaker 20 or 30 water maker for 5 hours on a single tank of gas AND will still have power left over to charge your batteries! You can make 100 gallons of water from the SeaMaker 20 water maker or 150 gallons from the SeaMaker 30 water maker from a single gallon of gas.
When it comes to water makers, size does matter.
When selecting a water maker for your cruise, don’t be fooled by the myth about water maker sizing that, in our opinion, simply tries to rationalize the buying decision of a low production rate water maker. More often than not, it’s the cost of a higher output unit that forces the buying decision of a lower output unit. Sure water makers (specifically the RO membranes) like to be run rather than sitting unused, but if the system is designed properly for easy fresh water flushing and pickling when not in use, your RO membrane along with the entire system will not suffer loss of life due to periods of prolonged inactivity or infrequent use. We also offer an Automatic Fresh Water Flush Option that will automatically fresh water flush the water maker for you, eliminating the need for pickling or remembering to flush the water maker when not in use!
Our design and company philosophy is simple: build a water maker that is easy to install, operate, service and repair, but most importantly do it without a “Marine” or “Cruising Gear” price premium. Designing a low cost water maker with no proprietary parts, that lock you into an overpriced relationship for consumables or replacement parts, doesn’t just result in a more affordable water maker, but in a better water maker.
Don’t let our lower cost fool you.
Our SeaMaker water makers are not water maker DIY kits or a collection of mismatched parts requiring top to bottom user assembly. We ship our SeaMaker water makers fully assembled in modules that simply need to be mounted in your boat and plumbed together with the supplied cut-to-fit and color coded water lines. Keeping our overhead low and understanding what works out in the real world of cruising allows us to supply the cruising community with a top quality large capacity water maker at a price that won’t sink your cruising kitty, while offering an industry leading three (3) year warranty and 7 day a week technical support.
A good place to start for a technical overview of a SeaMaker water maker is by reviewing the flow schematic below for a SeaMaker 20. The SeaMaker 20 water maker only has one RO membrane and pressure vessel, while the SeaMaker 30 and 40 water makers both have two RO membranes and pressure vessels plumbed in series.
General Flow Schematic of the SeaMaker 20 Water maker
you have spent some time researching water makers on the web, you may
notice that our flow schematic looks similar to many of the other water
makers on the market. The similarities stand to reason because reverse
osmosis desalination technology is not black magic, but rather
mainstream technology with a good track record of performance. This is
important to you because the parts and components that make up a
commercial RO water maker should be commodity priced rather than “black
magic priced”. Recognizing the commodity based nature of the RO
industry; we have priced our SeaMaker water makers at what we think is a
fair starting price and then only raise our price for a larger output
water maker to match any increase in our raw component prices and not
just because the product water flow rate increases.
