Dear All,

It seems we may need to replace our watermaker membranes (Dessalator DUO100, filmtec SW30-2521).
Wondering if anyone has had to source membranes in Europe recently, and if you can recommend a supplier with 'reasonable' prices. Air, Water, ice mentioned below no longer seems to offer EU shipping on their website. I am also looking into few US based websites who would ship to France.

On a separate note, do membranes come with all required O-rings or do these need to be sourced separately?

Thanks in advance for your responses,

Have a nice Sunday all.

I have always got my membranes from Air, Water & Ice (, even though I am in the Med. Their Filmtec membranes are $234 each (SW30-2540 is the model I recall). If you buy here, make sure you specify packaging for International post so that they beef up the protection. This source is cheaper than anything I can get locally.

Here is their list: membranes.html

By the way, my last membranes from them have now completed 8 years use and the water is still great. No pickling. Just the occasional back flush if I am not going to use the system for more than three weeks.

Good luck

I have tried looking on this site for a conversation about replacing the membranes and can not find same.
If any one could tell us of were to obtain the replacement membranes in the US with a telephone number would be greatly appreciated. Our system is a 160 - 180 litre per hour system.
We are in the process of arranging a shipment from Miami to St Martin.
