Reid, What w/maker do you have now and how is it powered? Do you have a generator with 220v supply ?

We have a Sharki with a failed water maker. The previous owner installed it so that when it leaked, which it did, it did so on the motor. The issue would be how large a unit we could fit. We need new membranes etc in any case.  
Currently we are on the hard in Indiantown Marina Florida returning to it this fall for winter cruising.

I replaced my watermaker a few years ago and have my old one in my basement . I do not need it and I am willing to give it to someone that does. I am looking for someone that does not want it because its free , but needs it and can use it. It was never used by me as I was in fresh water , but I have no reason to believe it would not be in good condition, the only thing  that it needs is a new glass vial that measures water flow, it broke from freezing . It is a 60L 220V., includes the panel showing about 240 hrs., membranes ( would need replacing) large Lesson motor connected via fan belt to high pressure pump , hoses , filter , complete system. I would be willing to ship it (at your cost, very heavy so costly)  anywhere, USA. or could be picked up on the Sassafras River 40 miles north of Annapolis or few miles from the C&D canal for those heading south from New England.

Good morning Paul,

We have the same:
http://nikimat.com/water_maker_duo_d60.html
I speak French, but from memory the owner manual didn’t say much.

I am very new at using my water maker, had it completely serviced earlier this year since it had not been used since I purchase my vessel in 2012.
I had put: new membrane, new high pressure switch. I wanted to change the high pressure hose, but service person said they were still good, which was a mistake as one blew up not too long ago and luckily only damaged my inverter…

Hopefully you can get additional feed back from others.
If you don’t know when your water maker was last used, at least change the membrane and the high pressure hoses.

To operate it, it is easy (just used it for 5 hours 2 days ago crossing to Nassau)
Prior to using: make sure the through hull valve is open, the filter is clean, etc.

in 24 volt mode: turn the switch to the left (24 Volt)
At first you will see an orange light. The water maker will be discarding bad water to the same hose as the bilge pump.
After a little while the green light will appear.
Make sure to adjust the knob to remain in the green arc.
The little bubble will show you how many litters per hour you are making.
From the little faucet you can use a PPM meter and see how many particule you have.
With a new membrane I have 10…
I forgot at what number you should be changing the Membrane (I am sure Bill or someone will give the number).

in 220 Volt mode:
Note: this is 220 Volt 50 Hz. So depending where you are located, make sure it is 50 HZ. The US, Bahamas, etc. provide 60 HZ so you would have to run your generator in order to get 50 HZ.
Turn swtich to the right (220 Volt) and the same as above.

I monitor with the water floating stick that I am making water.

On my side I preferred to hire a professional to check the high pressure switch and the quality sensor.
Don’t forget to change the high pressure hoses if you don’t know the last time they were changed.
A failure of these can cost you several thousands of dollars in damages… many people lost their batteries charger…

You should use it, at least once a week for a few minutes (to keep the membrane wet).
If you are in a marina, you can “rinse” it. There is a valve before the filter that you can move.
Now, instead of sea water it receive fresh water from your tank.
BUT, you can not use water with chlorine, otherwise will destroy the membrane.
Personally I have install a charbon filter to remove the chlorine when I flush it.

Hope that helps, sincerely, Alexandre
