Hi fellow sailors,

Would appreciate if any of you could share your experiences of a Seafresh 206A water maker unit- 220VAC?

Godds, bads, warts n suggestions - all welcome before we go buy this for the owner. It is to be fitted to an Oyster 575. As Skipper, I want to ensure this is a good reliable unit, which I won't have to see as a headache rather than a great resource for longer passages.

Hi, Don't know this brand (in fact could not source the manufacturer - is it made by Oyster ??) Depending on what size tank water tank/s on the boat - this watermaker is said to make 25 gallons per hour, but it needs 220/240 VAC - which means running a generator every day (Reason :- water makers need to be run in order to prevent the osmotic membrane from 'gumming up') Therefore I guess the generator can be operated at the same time as the hot water system/s is/are being heated up.

So what I see is that the boat needs not only a Watermaker that is new or recently serviced (spare membranes, pickling fluid etc..) plus a generator that is in good nick,

plus good primary filters for the sea water being utilized
