Water sourcing

No, just from what little I read itís a Solar powered Watermaker, and I believe Spectra with its energy recovery pump will make more water per unit of power than anything, so I assume this is a big Spectra essentially.

The problem with this and all things meant to make life better and easier for less advantaged people, is someone has to maintain it, and that takes a person who knows how and parts of course.

Sometimes these types of things donít last long, due to lack of parts and a knowledgeable person

I agree, but we arenít the average African tribesman either, but then maybe the average tribesman has changed with the proliferation of technology? Anyone with a cell phone has an unlimited supply of knowledge in their hand now.
