30 May What’s the word on watermakers
What is a Watermaker?
A boat watermaker turns seawater into freshwater using a process called “reverse osmosis”.
This is simply a type of filtration that uses a semi-permeable, thin membrane with pores small enough to pass pure water through while rejecting larger molecules such as dissolved salts and other impurities.
Watermakers remove the need to store vast amounts of heavy freshwater on your vessel, and to replenish supplies at ports along your voyage.
With a watermaker onboard, boat owners can ensure a reliable fresh water supply for drinking water, showers and even a jacuzzi in larger vessels, all at the touch of a button.
Without a doubt, Watermakers are a huge asset onboard boats of all sizes.
How does an Idromar Boat Watermaker Work?
Idromar uses a fully automatic, reverse osmosis water system, 316 stainless frame and membrane housings, fully assembled on rubber mounts, with a self-priming low pressure pump and weekly auto freshwater flush at the push of a button, plus full-function, remote panel with 10 metre connecting cable, meaning it can be installed in the fly bridge.
Idromar and Gineico offer a 2-year warranty.
The Idromar ‘Family’
Italian company, Idromar International, founded in 1982, is a pioneer of watermakers. Founder and keen boatie, Vittorio Battino drew on his 20 years’ experience working in the water purification sector and constructed the brand’s first watermaker using the same high-quality materials Idromar is renowned for today.
Still a family-run business, and proudly Italian, Idromar produces watermakers that are the preference of shipyards, manufacturers, recreational boaties and trades for their reliability, durability, ease of use and simplicity of operation.
