Sailors and powerboaters seeking fresh, pure water, without the space or electric demands of a full-sized watermaker, will enjoy FCI Watermakers’ Aqualite series. The compact reverse osmosis system produces 200 gallons per day—8.3 gallons per hour—with only an 8 amp power draw on 110/115V, or 4 amps on 220/230V.
Simple to use, the Aqualite series comes complete with a full electronics package, including a touch pad control. A digital remote display panel and fully automated fresh water flush are available. The vibration-free unit is powered by a 316 stainless steel high-pressure pump and can be run off a small generator or inverter. Fitted neatly into a powder-coated aluminum frame, it measures 18″ L x 20″ W x 11″ H and is easy to install. The membrane adds width, but can be mounted remotely. The unit weighs a mere 68 lbs. Combined with less need for stored water, this translates into more speed under sail and improved fuel economy for powerboats.
Like all FCI Watermakers’ innovative desalinization systems, the Aqualite is built in the US to the marine industry’s highest standards using the finest non-proprietary parts—essential for the cruising boater. The company has over 200 sales and service dealers in over 70 countries. The unit is offered with a two year warranty on non-consumable parts.
