If you are going to not rebuild the Dessalator, maybe you should consider using some of your existing generic parts from the Dessalator system such as the low pressure pump, membrane tubes and end caps.
If I were you, I wouldn't rely on any watermaker company, but I would build a system with a new high pressure pump from CAT, a generic 220VAC 50htz motor, some manual valves and pressure gauges and use the membrane tubes and low pressure pump from the Dessalator system.
I am sure that you can find the specifications that you need on-line. The entire system us simple. Apply the correct vessel pressure and you get pure water. There is really no need for electric valves and PCBs.
And BTW, I am mostly sure that the reason Dessalator suggested a new PCB Control Board is because your board was made wrong by the Dessalator subcontractor and really does not sense water quality. The quality sense scheme is a fake on all boards up to about 2010. Also, I believe that the reason that they suggested a new control panel is that the pressure valve they used on yours is not really the quality necessary for saltwater. It will suffer from corrosion...use CorrosionX liberally on the outside if this valve. Oh, and many of us had white end caps which were made of inferior material...another Dessalator error. These are common Dessalator errors that most of us have paid for.
I hope this helps you to make a decision.
