This is a lowproduction(5-6lit/hr),low energyconsumtion watermaker quite popular on the Blue Water cruising market.We realised with the time that running the PUR 40 should be done out at sea and for long periods(10-12hrs/day) so that your tanks are topped up when making landfall.Finding potable water on the islands in the South Pacific is a tedious and sometimes impossible task,and topped up watertanks when arriving will make your stay a lot more pleasant.Energyconsumtion is acceptable and our Aquair watergenerator provided enough electricity for running the watermaker long periods at sea.The quality is good,but conservation and service procedures are tedious and complicated.
If you don´t want an enginedriven watermaker,and energyconsumtion is of concern,then the PUR 40 is recomended as an alternative.
