The SeaMaker Simple Water Makers lowers the cost of our standard water maker by doing away with the remote panel and by mounting the necessary water maker controls right on the end of the RO Pressure Vessel. In fact, this Simple Water Maker is the exact configuration that Rich, the owner of Cruise RO Water and Power, has been cruising with for over 7 years.
Simple Water Maker models ARE NOT lower quality water makers. The cost savings DOES NOT come from using lower quality components. removing the industry leading customer service or warranty, and we don’t compromise on using top quality parts

Advantages of the SeaMaker Simple Water Maker
It’s Simplified. As the name implies, the water maker plumbing is “simplified” with fewer high pressure stainless fittings and high pressure hoses, which helps explain the cost savings. Simplicity also helps to make the installation easier without the extra low and high pressure lines running to and from the remote panel. You don’t have to find a place to mount the remote panel or cut another hole in your boat (always a plus). And of course you get to save $395 for beer and tacos south of the border.
Challenges with the SeaMaker Simple Water Maker version
You will need to access it every time you start and stop the water maker. Since the system controls will be mounted on the end of the RO Pressure Vessel, you will need to access it every time you start and stop the water maker to adjust the system pressure. If you plan to bury the RO Pressure Vessel in an inaccessible spot or under the salon setae that the admiral will kill you for tearing apart each time you need to access for her showers, then the extra cost for the remote panel could be a marriage and cruise saver. If you have a spot to mount the RO Pressure Vessel that allows for easy access to the water maker controls, then you could have made it past compromise one.
You won’t have a flow meter. You will be giving up the ability to glance at your water maker panel and see how many gallons of fresh water per minute you are producing, since you won’t have a flow meter (or at least the one we supply on the remote panel). This kills the deal for a lot of the “techy-monitor-guys” who love to watch the flow meter float bounce at 35 GPH on their 30 GPH water maker and feel like they got a bonus 5 GPH. But for the captains that can happily use a 5 gallon bucket and stop watch to calculate their fresh water production not having the panel mounted flow meter is livable.
Lack of on/off boost pump and high pressure pump switches. The nonblocking 3-way valve that routes the product water to either your sample location or your ships tank is still included with the SeaMaker Simple Water Maker but you will not have the on/off boost pump and high pressure pump switches. However, since you will need to supply breakers for these two pumps even with the remote panel, you can just use your breakers to turn the two pumps on and off.
