There is an endless number of benefits to marine water maker technology. By changing salty sea water into drinkable and fresh drinking water, you can enjoy the freedom of sailing around the world without heavy jugs of potable water dragging you down.
But before you invest in marine water maker technology, you are probably wondering, how does it even work?
While all marine water maker models differ slightly, they all use reverse osmosis to turn seawater into fresh drinking water for you, your guests, and your crew.
Here’s how it works:
- Sea water is pulled up by a feed pump.
- The pre-filtration process begins, removing sand, debris, and other particles.
- Pressure pumps push pre-filtered water through osmotic membranes which separate fresh water from brine.
- Fresh water is sent to the tank & brine is released back to the sea.
- Osmotic membranes start a process called reverse osmosis, which separates fresh water from the salty water.
- Fresh water pumps that are installed on your vessel connect to the tank, enabling you to have a reliable supply of clean water for drinking, showers, washing dishes, etc.
