The Aquamate Series I 1800 Gallon Per Day Water maker
At Daily Watermakers we design and manufacture marine reverse osmosis machines for a wide variety of boats. The Aquamate Series I line of watermakers is a unit that doesn't use automation. It still uses all the quality components necessary to make water, but the end user is responisble for the complete operation of the watermaker. (If you are interested in a watermaker that is automated click here.) The 1800 Gallon per Day water maker makes approximately 75 Gallons per hour, which is the average size purchased. Some also purchase the "manual" RO unit because it is the more economic choice. There isn't much of a spatial difference between a modular automated watermaker and a non-automatic version. This Series I watermaker is currently only available in a modular unit, which means that it is a component watermaker or it is not a framed unit. Which is ideal when space is limited (which is usually the case on boats) or you don't want a large shelf occupied by the watermaker when you have the option of purchasing a modular unit.

Flow Control Panel
Our control panel was built with the marine environment in mind. We have a glossy white powder coated partially enclosed frame/panel box. We made this panel with every intention of compactness while retaining performance and ease of use. We use two long lasting, easy to service flow meters, one for the product water and one for the brine flow. Both flowmeters are very important for understanding how much water you are making and at the same time making sure you are not flowing too much or not enough water. The Daily Watermaker panel also has two gauges, one high pressure and low pressure gauge. Both are glycerin filled, stainless steel housings, and nickle plated 1/4" NPT connections. Our flow control valve is centrally mounted and it is marine grade built. Also located on the flow control panel is a product tank selector valve, which is very simple to use and clearly marked.
High Pressure PumpSet
Unlike the Series II framed unit, this high pressure pumpset (close coupled high pressure pump and motor) is a modular piece. Our pump head is flow specific, meaning if you only need 3 gallons per minute of water, that is what we will use. This means we are using the appropriate size motor as well, the watermaker will not draw more power than is needed. The motors are specifcally built for Daily Watermakers; they are Baldor high efficiency motors, powder coated yacht white, fixed rotation (very important), and have long lasting vibration damperners for mounting. As mentioned before our high pressure pump head is 316 Stainless Steel and specifically made for reverse osmosis systems.
Low Pressure Pump
This pump is very important because it will increase the performance and longevity of the rest of the components. We use a high output pump, with a corrosion resistant pump, and we use a 316 stainless steel shaft which is far and away the best in the industry.
Our pressure vessel, which is the enclosure for the membrane filter element, is a shiny white finish fiberglass tube with stainless steel end plugs.
We use some of the highest rated flow membranes for a standard size.
