Re: Boric Acid Remains in Watermaker Water

Thanks to all who answered. GordMay, yeah, I did the same calculations after the discussion in this thread and came up with a 1-2 mg/L boron as well. That's 2-4 times the norm (WHO or EU respectively) as opposed to 5-10 times of unfiltered water.

Somehow these numbers I'm willing to live with, especially if supplementing with spring water from a clean source. And when she grows up a bit, she'll just have to learn to live with all those over-the-limit chemicals all of us are ingesting every day. After all, she's going to be a sailor lady

Re: Boric Acid Remains in Watermaker Water

Just an update to this thread: I received a test paper from Dessalator. Usual levels of boron after ro are 0.4 mg.

Re: Boric Acid Remains in Watermaker Water

This what I've been using at home vs bottled water.>>> Countertop drinking water filter system AQ-4000 by Aquasana

I plan to add one down stream of my drinking tank once I get the new watermaker installed. I've had one in my home for over 5 years w/filter changes every 6 months. I once took a gl bottle to the boat and forgot about it, stuck away in a compartment. I found it a over year later and it was just as clear as the day I filled it and no smell either.
