maker is engine
driven or 110 driven via a cat pump. I'm currently putting out 22GPH, and will add another membrane to bring it up to over 40 GPH. I had a small 12v water-maker while crossing the Pacific in 2007 and it was good for drinking water
but not laundry
, and it needed to run all the time defeating the output of my solar panels
. I now have over 600 watts, but a bigger boat too.
I'd be weary of a cheap
Chinese pump depending on your Hi-pressure pump. If it runs dry you could in for an expensive repair, your HP pump is the most expensive part of your system. If your HP pump can run dry no worries, mine cant. Also keep your plumbing
before the feed pump below the water
line. If your bildge is deep enough you may not even need a feed pump.
March pumps are worth their weight in gold and the brushless rated for 20,000 hours, and for continuous duty. I travel on very little money
but never scrimp on marine equipment
as I'm always out of the country in remote
areas. The march pump can also easily be rebuilt and serviced with a screw driver.
Hope this helps.
