I am copying the system on the internet
I have purchased two 2.5" X 40 " sea water
membranes for US$161.00 each or AUD $196.00 plus two pressure vessels for US$261 each and that is RETAIL. Home Reverse Osmosis
The pump is a CAT pump247 plus pressure regulator
Cost including freight US$1410.00.(Depco Pump company Florida)
This will give me 40 US gallons and hour plus the backup of having two pressure vessels and two membranes.
I will run the Cat pump off my electic start 10.5 hp Honda
(chonda A$495) which will also run 2 X 100 amp car alternators. (not all together)
I almost went with using a pressure washer pump, but decided in the end to copy exactly the system put togeteher by s/v quintessence, so I that I "know" the systen will work properly.
Also I purchased ALL of my electronics
, chartplotter, auto pilot,radar from GPS | Fish finder | Boat part | Marine Supply | Marine Electronics
in Carlsbad California
. Very good prices and excellent service
. I reckon I have saved $10,000 so far by buying offshore
. I also have received the "current" models not last season leftovers.
I have found I can even buy the motorola sat phone9050A plus a 12 month prepaid for under $2,000 whereas in Australia it would be $3,500.00.
I must thank, again, the members of this forum for helping me to source the best products for my needs at the best prices. Thank you All.
