Re: small electric pressure washer pump for watermaker
I may have over estimated the production of the membranes, it seems they only produce around 10 gal each in real life... still plenty... I upgraded to a 280 watt solar array that is charging a bank of 4 AGM batteries, and I also have another bank of 4 that i am in the process of tieing into the system with a sunforce 600 watt wind turbine. I am currently using a xantrex mppt controller to regulate the charging, and using a xantrex true signwave converter to power a small refrigerator, and intermittent use of a tv, microwave and laptop computer... I do also have an additional 280 watt solar panel, but I really hope the addition of the wind generator will kill the need of a 2nd solar panel because these 280 watt giants are 33" x 77" in length. there is room behind the split backstay for one panel across the rear of the bimini, but there is only 33" of room between the back stay and end of the boom which leaves no clearance...
