With a PUR 80 installed in the cabinet in the area below the head
sink I just fed the product water normally to a 5 gallon water jug that sat on the head floor/shower sump. All water was sampled before pouring it into deck feed of either of the 2 main water tanks. With a PUR 40 its going to take about 3 hours for you to fill a 5 gallon water jug so the same approach might work for you.
Using the same hose the initial product water was fed to head sink.
Had a number of gallon and quart bottles that were used for drinking water
and filled them directly off the hose from water maker.
The waste water was run aft and tee'd into one of the cockpit
System worked well but you get tired of listening to the pump run and dealing with the electrical
demand can be an issue. We had enough solar
to meet all other electrical
needs including refrigeration
but when depending on the watermaker
for water we needed to run the engine
to make up for the electricity used. Would frequently run the watermaker
the day before we knew we were going to be motoring and/or ran the watermaker while motoring.
In places like Zihuatenjo rather then run the water maker we just had bottled water delivered to the boat in 5 gallon jugs typically 40 gallons at a time. The cost was pretty minimal and we could get by with a weekly delivery
. For showers and washing
down the boat in Zihua we would pick up tap water available at the fuel dock
- had a number of sun showers for this purpose.
In the Sea of Cortez
the watermaker ran quite a bit.
