60 lph from 16 amps is pretty good.

Re: Impressive Looking Watermaker.

No proprietary parts and Unique patented Ultra Efficient High pressure pump in the description. Which is it?

I saw that too but i assume what they mean is that the patent is held by a supplier.

Has anyone seen a price on these?

No meaningful online documentation.

How about the unique patented one?

I fixed the link

Interesting, it operates at lower than average pressure, and quotes a chlorine tolerance level

Pretty typical pressure of an energy recovery watermaker. My HRO runs about 650 psi.

About the same specs as a Spectra Cape Horn, just more expensive.

Who cares. A question about your watermaker is not an emergency.

Re: Impressive Looking Watermaker.

Look closely guys and girls and you'll see a "Clark Pump" like Spectra has been using forever to get high power efficiency from their watermakers.

Either Spectra's patent has expired (quite possible at this point), or these guys are leeches.

Either way, it is a copy-cat from the Spectra design.

Spectra has mostly moved into the high end, automated, bells and whistles market, so there might be a place for someone making a bare-bones Clark Pump RO system.

With this system, I would seriously evaluate the long term availability of parts and technical support before I pulled the trigger.

Some vendors encourage you to call anytime, no need for it to be an emergency.

But it isn't needed and has no bearing on selecting a watermaker, so why bring it up like it is some major criteria? You can wait till Monday morning to get support on your watermaker. In practice a quality watermaker takes very little support. I had one support question in 8 years with my Village Marine.

There is no call volume difference for me 7 days a week...as a Cruiser meself what does a weekend mean anyway? Why would I ignore a call or Email on a Sat or Sunday when I could take care if it then? The Monday-Friday biz model is old school corporate dying model.

As to this new smazy water maker....its just a other Clark Pump water maker. If I wanted one of those I would buy from the King of that design....Spectra.
