I pickled the system and have not used it for 5 or 6 years. Now I want to recommission it and have been investigating swapping out the membrane and housing with a generic 2.5 x 21 membrane. This was the first I heard about possibly using a 14" instead of 21". Any advice or direction will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Al

Go with the 14" membrane. The PS80 pump does not have enough flow for a 21". Water quality would be poorer than with the 14" and membrane life would be shorter.

For seawater you must have the 1000 psi pressure vessel. Sorry, but I don't have any photos and I don't have access to a PS80 to get you any. You can download the Katadyn PS80 on line for how to hook up the tubing.
