I can turn knobs and flip switches with the best of them and I can fully understand the simple workings of plumbing and basic wiring. But an electronic circuit board hooked to servos and relays and... ugh! It's asking for trouble.

I have an Echotec 12V - 13gph - same concept and I fully agree that having a simple build manual machine withe non-proprietary parts is the wat to go. Even if it means to use more AH than the proprietary low power units!
I personally decided for Echotec as I think they us the better pumps and valves. I went for 12V as I can run it from Solar, Engine and Honda over the charger, but I guess thats a personal choice.

Re: Cruise RO water maker -what do you think about these?

Too bad I didn't read this sooner! We installed a Cruise RO on our boat about 2 years ago. I think we bought his first or second vertically-mounted unit. I LOVED it!!! It actually made more water than was rated, ran perfectly from the Honda 2000, parts are easy to find anywhere. It's not real "pretty", but it makes sense and you can "see" how it all works. The customer service is wonderful as well!! I can't say enough good things about them. If there's anyone else interested in buying one, don't hesitate! Rich (the owner) is also a cruiser, so he knows the ins and outs of it all....

Re: Cruise RO Water Maker -What Do You Think About These ?

Curious as to how folks experience since the march post above has panned out. Still happy?

I'm looking at putting in a 30 gph unit )in the 220V 50 Hz mode), and initially running it from my 3000W inverter whilst my engines are running. Eventually I'll get a Honda, but I will likely have to wait until leaving North America to source a Honda with the required voltage/frequency.
