BTW, you should use a watermaker at least every other day, if not daily, otherwise you'll have problems with it. If you're not going to be using it for a while, it should be pickled.

Some points about RO Watermakers that you may not know.

RO watermakers shouldn't be used in polluted or bacterially contaminated waters.

The membrane in the RO watermaker will be destroyed by exposure to chlorine, even the amounts found in municipal water supplies, so don't flush your membrane with chlorine treated water.

The system pressure should be adjusted for higher or lower water temperatures and higher or lower salinity, as not doing so can damage the membrane.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
