Hello Fellas.

So its time to install some new gear, this time a new water maker, it seems like a jungle of products, any experiences with whats good and whats not, I currently have no idea what to buy... 

Whats top shelf products in 2018 ? 

Experiences much appreciated. 

Best

I installed a 100 l/h Schenker two years ago.
It is the 12V version.
I can switch it on when motoring in calm sea.
So far so good.
I fit it in the bow owner cabin under the berth, in front of the water tank.
You use space that would be wasted.
I think it is a better position than sail locker.

We just installed a Blue Water Desalination unit producing 38 GPH.     Its a fairly compact installation and it fits nicely in the systems cabin/C3 layout we have.  See pictures..

I installed the Schenker Smart 30 (about 25 litres/hr) on our 415 in Sept 2016 and it has lived up to expectations ... reliable and relatively low current draw (8-9 amps). Finding a home for it was made easier by the device being in two medium sized parts: the pump (which is under a bunk) and the RO/Energy Recovery System (which is in a locker).

The downside to a watermaker is the maintenance overhead, needing to pickle it if it isn't going to be used for a while and winterising it with food grade propylene glycol if sub-zero temperatures are a possibility. It's not something you can install and forget.
