We can now ALMOST make water
With the exception of making the final electrical connection, our new Katadyn Powersurvivor 80E watermaker is ready to go!
The coiled white wire just needs to be connected to the terminal block to make it fully operational.
This filter needs to be checked almost every time the unit is run. Ease of access is important.
We are fortunate in that we had a large, relatively open area that we could allocate to the install. Although it is a prime storage area, we felt that using the open space would make the necessary routine maintenance much easier, and thus us much happier!
Unfortunately, we are not yet sure how to test the unit. It is, after all, a desalinator, meant to work in salt water, and it will be a while yet before we are out of fresh water. I plan to shoot the company an email to see what they have to say about this.
