Re: The Future of Watermakers - Nanoporous Graphene

Far as I'm concerned a 10-20% decrease in energy isn't worth much and I doubt I would spend more money to just have that. I would still need to run the same generator etc.

I remember when I first read about this a few years ago and they said it would only need "low pressure" to make clean water. Maybe low pressure really means LESS high pressure???????

But if they could get this into the 30% + range... Maybe we are getting close to to the point of running them from the house and wind/solar regen systems with the smaller capacity units??

Re: The Future of Watermakers - Nanoporous Graphene

Id prefer if the DIY water maker parts community concentrated on making some low ( or lower) cost energy recovery systems available!
