Thanks Tellie and LOL. The unit has two of those membranes stacked one on top of the other, so it might be 300 gpd. but either way 150 is enough for us. It sure looks like a quality piece of equipment
. I spent 36 years producing drinking water
for lots of people, but the treatment units were conventional and usually in the 50 to 150 MGD category. So I don't have any experience with Desal, or small units like this. But everything in this unit looks like high quality.
I assume I'll need to remove this thing from the case and mount it in a compartment on the boat, so prior to that, I guess my next step is to set up a test bench with a pre-filter and a barrel of salt water
. Currently the boat is in an estuary on San Francisco
Bay. The bay has a very low salt
content, but it is a commercial
harbor, and probably has rather nasty raw water
For test water
, should I batch up some salt water
, and does anyone have a suggestion on the concentration. I'll also go out an buy a TDS meter.
Tellie, when I get ready to start assembling this thing, I'd like to send you some photos and questions. Thanks again to both of you, I really appreciate the help on this. Paul
