Katadyn "PowerSurvivor" 40E Watermaker - 12V

PowerSurvivor 40E Desalinator

Reverse Osmosis Watermaker - 12 Volt DC
Ideal for 1 to 4 people or use on boats up to 39-feet LOA.

This compact, highly durable 12-volt watermaker greatly contributes to improving life on board. Affordable and reliable, the PS40E lets cruisers go further and stay longer without the worry of having enough quality water available. This is the smallest and least expensive powered watermaker on the market and the only one that converts to manual operation in the event of a power failure.

Simplicity - The 40E contains 40% fewer parts than its popular predecessor, the Power Survivor 35. Simplified construction and rugged design make the 40E remarkably easy to install, operate and maintain.

Compactness - Extraordinarily compact, the 40E can be installed in the nooks and crannies otherwise unusable in many yachts.

Efficiency - No watermaker draws so few amps. Using only 4 amps, the 40E can run for extended periods on alternative power alone.

Durability - The heart of the 40E is the rugged stainless steel high-pressure pump. Armed for the rigors of the marine environment with unmatched reliabilty, this watermaker is built to last and is covered by a superior warranty - 3 years on most components.

Note: This is the only power watermaker that converts to manual operation in emergencies.
