But it was a well built unit and the folks were very knowledgeable

ps we have a katadyn e80 and it runs off our solar panels and runs underway and is modular so we have it scattered throughout the boat and we have no issue with running it a couple of hours a day or more - to meet our needs

if I had a huge boat with lots of power we would look at a Rainman
Hi Chuckr, don't really understand the "the price was abit high" comment. I looked at a number of units and the Rainman was very competively priced, particularly in usd or euros?
I cruised for eight years with a katadyn 80e, it served me well but it can't really be compared to a high volume ac driven watermaker. People have different requirements, I now very much prefer the luxury of lots of water.
