These are made in Italy aren't they? You're not suggesting a WM is shipped from Europe to you in Aus and you then send it on to the OP in the USA

Re: Watermakers: is there a cheaper alternative

I built my own but still set me back about $4000AUS
High pressure pump,
1hp 12 V Baldor Motor
Pressure Vessel with Membrane
Raw water filters
Pressure Hose
SS 316 Valve & Fittings
Safety switch.
Use engine cooling pump for feed.
50 l/hr
Had it for about 5 years now, works well, always have a freshwater shower & rinsing gear after diving.
It's not a compact setup. Membrane under the seat, HP Pump & Motor under the floor as are the filters. Reasonably easy to access.
