Watermakers

I just installed a PUR Power Survivor 40E on our Watkins 25'. Pictures in my gallery. Haven't turned it on yet because the Cooper River, SC is too silty and they recomend using it in 'blue water' only to save on filter replacement. They make a prefilter system but that doesn't seem necessary since I ony intend to use it on our annual Bahamas trips. Anyone have any experience with this or other models/brands of water makers? Maintenance problems, actual production vs spec sheet, etc?

I just ordered an Sk Watermaker. I did so, for a couple of reasons. It's modular, makes it easier to "fit" on the boat. It also uses many over the counter parts, which should mean cheaper to fix and to run.

I ordered the DC 150 which will make 4 to 6 gallons an hour. I don't have the electric draw handy.

Let me add a question to his thread:

What watermaker will you name as a proved to be used for three no hassle years to serve a family of 4 (including 2 small kids) and the most important REASONABLY PRICED? What parameters to consider when buying one (service, productivity, energy consumption, maintenance, etc…)?

Appreciate your input.
