Conventional watermakers or energy-saving systems based on the Clark Pump principle - which product is right for whom?

There is no general answer here. As diverse as the range of products on the market are, so are the preferences of customers.

The following list of aspects and questions is intended to provide a little help.

  • How is the energy supply on board? Is there enough surplus or generator power available?
  • How important is low-noise operation for the intended installation location and intended use?
  • What value do I place on an independent diagnosis and repair option?
  • How much water is needed and how long should it be produced?

Once you have answered these questions yourself, it helps to look at the advantages and disadvantages in order to make a decision.

The advantages and disadvantages of the two systems:

Conventional watermaker

  • Easy error diagnosis
  • Easy to understand structure
  • Lower purchase price in relation to the production rate
  • To be serviced and repaired independently of the manufacturer based on standard components
  • Individual configurations with high production rates are possible

Energy transfer systems

  • Approximately 50% reduced energy consumption
  • Very easy to use - no pressure needs to be set.
  • Low noise level during operation
  • In the event of a functional failure, it may be difficult to diagnose the error and require manufacturer support, including for spare parts.
