We can go 3-4 weeks on the 100 gallons our tanks hold, so I never saw a need for the complexity of a watermaker. When in doubt we 'overchlorinate' by adding about a teaspoon of bleach per 10 gallons, and we filter the water at the sink - 0.45 micron filter for bacteria, and activated charcoal to take the chlorine and organic chemicals out. (Changing both more often in water of unknown origin than you would if the tanks have US City Water, of course!)
