Our previous boat had a Village Marine watermaker installed. It required a special sized membrane. Expensive. I replaced the membrane housing and membrane with a standard, buy anywhere size. Capacity didn’t change at all. Very happy with the switch.

😀 Filmtech makes special-length membranes for some watermaker manufacturers. I assume that the reason some watermaker manufacturers would want a membrane that is slightly shorter or longer is so that they can charge you a lot for the membrane.😀
The most common size saltwater membrane is the SW30 2540 (2.5" X 40") which is sold for near 200 euro. Of course, you can buy the exact same Filmtech membrane from some suppliers for as much as 600 euro. It's your choice, but you will receive exactly the same membrane.

Except, from what I have been taught by THE MASTER, you have a SPECTRA
water maker. Then the length is slightly shorter and you are forced to buy from SPECTRA

Remember there is one manufacturer of membranes in the world. Regardless of where you buy them, they are the same and made by Filmtech

I am just in process of ordering membranes for my D60 dessalator. The price of SW30-2540 on the site you have in your mail is very affordable. What is your experience with them. I would need membranes in Slovenia, EU.
