I have a friend who has a PUR watermaker
and he feels he needs new membranes (he says there's two in the pressure vessel). Before you ask, lets just assume for the minute that he does actually need a new membrane and there's not some other problem.
quoted him around $500 ea, which makes it around $1000 for the two.
Given the fact that the PUR pressure vessel and membranes have a non-standard size, he's pretty much stuck with shelling out the $$. Or is he?
Why can't he just by a standard sized membrane and pressure vessel, about $500 for a 21" membrane/vessel on WaterAnywhere
? Then he's at least have a standard size pressure vessel and he could get a new membrane for $187 if he needed a new one.
I'm sure there's issues with fitting sizes between the pump and the new pressure vessel but I'm assuming these can be solved
. Also he'll need to make sure to get a membrane with similar surface area. Does anyone know what the surface area and operating pressure is for a Katadyn
Has anyone done this replacement?
Thanks in advance.
