The high presure pump is the success of the Spectra system.. along with the low power
comsumed.. My 150 pull about 6.5 amps in dence salt water

Read the info on the water-log and there's a lota holes in his thinking and what he's claiming... Not all watermakers have to be pickled.. Mine is equepted with a electronic unit that flushes the membrane every 100 hours to keep it clean while not in use...
He points out that it take "MINIMUM" of 4 knots to produce water, and even with our boat, when cruising, we're putting along at around 5 knots in a fair breeze..

An I'm sure many could get along with a five gallon jug of water and a bucket of granola. For myself, I injoy not having to worry about that part of cruising, and If I need water, I simply push a button and look, fresh water,
