New Second Hand Powersurvivor 40e Zombies be damned.

I just want to let the CF community know that I am now the proud new owner of a Katadyn Power survivor 40e. I am officially prepped for the zombie apocalypse.

I stripped the thing down and put all new seals and o rings in it. I found that there was a defective piston shaft, so I called Katadyn to order a new one. Would you believe they sent me one for free? I bought the thing used and they are sending me free stuff. How cool is that?

I really look forward to running it monthly to show my friends and guests that I have a water maker, and pickeling it over and over again. I also look forward to using it probably once...

I couldn't help myself. Did I mention I bought a water maker?

Re: New Second Hand Powersurvivor 40e Zombies be damned.

I am still not making the jump, for fear of under maintenance on my part. Pickeling, and constantly running. Sounds like a lot of work....

Oxymoron?

I have a watermaker as well. It was set to work and then pickeled about 6 years ago by previous owner, so must get around to running it to see what state it is in. Discovered it's saltwater valve recently (almost inaccessible spot) and reckoned it was only months away from disintegrating (brass ball valve)

If the membrane was pickled 6 years ago and has sat that way, it will probably not be good now.

No loss there as it really needed replacing 6 years ago apparently
