Experts in the field...who Tellie and that Bozo Rich guy from Cruise
RO, I wouldn't listen to them, they are just pump pushers caring only about long term dependability and customer service....them boobs are outdated in today's throw away world.
As a manufacture with a 3yr warranty I have totally different criteria for what works and what doesn't than a DIY guy. Dependability is Tops in my criteria, sure price
matters, but remember I'm selling 20-30 water makers PER MONTH so I don't want to be taking phone
calls from people with problems every day or I would never have time to work on my own boat. So we go with a $1150 SS industry standard general pump over a brass pump for 1/4 the price
. How many pump failures have I had....three. That's it. Do you ever hear horror stories about a Cruise
RO Water maker? Now to some that is worth the money
...to others...well that is their choice. But I tested a brass pump...see what happens to the inside after you leave it pickled for a few months....opps...
Here's a nice brass pump with holes at the packing seat.
This is a perfect example of why manufacturers are counseled to Never give advice on the internet
. You are asked...you give...and then you are the bad guy to sharing your years of experience.
Oh well...I'm a big boy I can take it.
I got a deal on Brass through hulls...anyone want to buy them?
