What You Need to Know About Watermakers - Sail Magazine

With a watermaker aboard, the days of rationing freshwater can come to an end! Photo by Discovery Yachts Water may be essential to life, but it can also be a pain aboard a sailboat. For one thing, it weighs a tremendous amount, and tankage can take up a good deal of space, especially aboard a smaller cruising boat. Water tanks can also be a pain to top off, especially in a remote foreign port. Not only do you often have to pay for the stuff, but there is the fear of its containing both organic and inorganic contaminants. Fortunately, in recent years sailors have been able to enjoy the benefits of modern watermakers that in many ways do for water stowage what GPS did to navigation: make a whole world of problems go away with the push of a button. That said, like GPS, watermaker technology is not entirely a no-brainer. In addition to taking care of your system—running and rinsing it regularly, pickling it with biocides if you can’t, and changing the filters regularly according to the manufacturer’s recommendations—it’s important to recognize that despite their similarities, there are also some basic differences between the many models on the market that have important implications in terms of how they are operated.

Most enclosed boats will have some kind of water system on board, ranging from a single manual pump operated tap to a system featuring hot and cold water with mixer taps and showers. Marine plumbing can be a daunting subject but most pleasure craft designed for river use have surprisingly similar water systems and understanding the function of just a few key common components can really help to gain a good understanding of marine plumbing. Unlike domestic plumbing where water pressure is generally created by gravity, boats require an electric pump to generate water pressure as tanks are often level with or below the outlets they serve. The pump is therefore the heart of the system and works by cycling on and off to maintain the desired pressure and a good flow when you open a tap. Most pumps are switched on and off automatically via a pressure switch inside the pump, though some smaller pumps rely on micro switches within the taps themselves. Pumps do differ in the pressure they provide (usually in PSI) and the flow rate (usually in GPM or LPM). The size of your boat, the number of outlets the pump will serve and the complexity of the water system will dictate which pump you will need.

The KlickFix® cartridge seal with sequentially deployable sealing lips – has been specifically developed around pump sealing applications in the paper and pulp industry and this case study demonstrates exactly why there is so much excitement within the industry about the future for this product. When a mechanical seal fails in this type of environment it can cause significant problems, requiring a great deal of clean-up. The mechanical seal in place on the customer's pump in this case had a typical life of just 9 to 11 months and required a constant clean water flush of some 20 gallons per hour. The KlickFix replacement was of an 8 lip configuration with the first 2 lips engaged on installation. Requiring just 2 gallons of flush per hour (a 90% reduction over the previous mechanical seal), this unit has now been in continual service for more than three and a half years with no leakage.
