I was planning to build the watermaker
system in index
which uses a Cat pump, but after listening to you guys it does seem that big is not always better, and that it may be better (and cheaper) to have a smaller unit that you run more often.
I have an electric
high pressure washer that I could use. It is rated at 360 liters /hour (100gallons/hour) and has a maximum of 1,250 psi. I plan to set it up for test purposes and run it at the 800-900 psi and measure the flow rate at that pressure.
I don't expect the flow to be much more than 150 gallons and hour which will only give be 12-15 gallons and hour of fresh water
, but I could probably live with that.
Anyone out there with experience or referral information that would be of benefit.
