Fitting belt driven watermaker pump in Lipari

Was wondering if anyone has fitted a belt driven watermaker HP pump to the starboard motor in a Lipari?

I am struggling with the watermaker equation and since I don't want to go down the energy recovery route I am going to have to run my engine anyway so wanted to explore how easy it would be to fit a modified pulley and a belt driven pump given the water heater is in there already and it's not exactly spacious.

Has anyone done this and if so, how has it worked out?

Not mine, but this is what the factory fitted watermaker looks like. The control panel in in the main cabin in the funny little cupboard nearest the bed.

Not mine but this is what a factory install units looks like. Sorry about the photos I was wasn't specifically photo graphing the water maker. The controll panel is in the main cabin just near the bed

Wonder why they put the control panel there - would have to run backwards and forwards. Looks like it is a 12v unit belt driving a HP pump into 2 membranes. All a bit unusual.

Have you fitted a watermaker?

Re: Fitting belt driven watermaker pump in Lipari

Yes I was surprised as well. This was on "Whiskers", so I was interested in how it was setup. I haven't put one in yet as we have no need, but it's on my shopping list of things for late next year before we head off. Certainly on my list to look at at Sanctuary Cove boat show this year. Partly why I'm looking at splitting the water tanks.
