Having helped lots of cruisers rebuild water
makers, there always becomes a point where the rebuild
dollars gets close enough to the "buy new" dollars to justify the new route
. The hard part is is that sometimes you don't know that exactly until you have already spent some rebuild dollars.
There are a few bad apples in the water
maker industry, but doing a simple Google
search of their company name can easily rule
them out as a safe/reputable vendor and will save you lots of potential drama. I have my "list of them" but as a water maker company owner myself, it's bad etiquette for me to name them.
A good starting point on some water maker basics is to watch the videos on our YouTube page:
Another good thing to check out is a copy of our water maker manual, so here is a link to download our most popular selling water maker, the SM30, which makes 30GPH.
We have the motor
available in 60hz and 50hz, if that is the power frequency of your generator
and we ship 3-4 unit to Aus and NZ per month using DHL.
I am currently at the Strictly Sail Boat Show
working the booth, but if you have any questions, I'm happy to help.
