ALL ABOUT SUN PURE WATERMAKERS -[Extra]- Sailing with a Purpose

We were welcomed into Stu and Maggie’s home in Tucson, Arizona and got to sit down with Stu and hear all about Sun Pure Watermakers. It was great getting to know him and hear how he got into sailing and building watermakers for other cruisers, he showed us around his workshop and gave us such in depth information on the desalination process and all that goes into putting one on a boat. Stu covers what it takes to install a watermaker onboard your boat or even for tiny home off grid living, helping you decide on the best unit for your needs based on practical power and water consumption for your situation. He covers his high quality components, warranties, support and the ordering process. Mention Ty & Hillary from Adventure Adrift and he will give you a $50 discount.

Very nice interview. I think most companies like to keep the operation of a water maker in the voodoo category. If it's magic and something that you could never understand, it's worth more, right? I've read enough to at least understand how these things work, and this system with the keep it simple design and quality components looks like a winner! I also love the small company, semi-retired aspect. Nothing more frustrating than calling a company and having to explain something to someone that isn't going to have the answer because you can't talk to THE person that actually built the thing!

I love the idea of running a small business from home. It's a dream I have and hopefully some day I'll find that widget to make it come true!

Jeff, that is strange we have heard a few people having this problem. We can access it fine right now with no issues, could it be from certain regions? http://sunpurewatermakers.com right?

Harold I hope some do end up in that neck of the woods, I know when we met with Stu not long after the Hurricanes he did mention that many of his units were going towards the east coast. Hopefully some useful RO systems are in use providing needed drinking water.

On the drawing, shown at 6:00 mins of the video,
the outlet side of the "Carbon Filter" should feed "To Ships Fixtures";
then carry through with valve to Boost Pump as shown.
Adventure Adrift
Adventure Adrift - 3 years ago
Precisely, if I remember correctly some people will put chlorine in the water tanks as well which needs to be taken out before back flushing. Cheers mate.
Schpankme Verimuch
Schpankme Verimuch - 3 years ago
OK, so the carbon filter is only for back flushing the RO Membrane/System and not to further clean drinking water.
Got it.
Adventure Adrift
Adventure Adrift - 3 years ago
I think I get you and I'll try and explain what I think is being shown, this is an add on option for an inline fresh water flush (we do not have this built inline) the carbon filter is setup in that direction to remove any trace chlorine which would damage the membrane, then you can draw water from the tanks into the system to flush. Did I explain that correctly or am I seeing it wrong or misunderstanding completely?

Hi Guys...great interview, super audio, good camera angles and a lot of fanatic information! I think he's spot on about being simple rather than automated. It's also good to stay in touch with the equipment on your boat!!! Also...sure wish you would have sent an Instagram or something in real time letting us know you were going to Tucson. I live here and have been watching you for a year. Also, I could have probably helped with directions, transportation and many other things. And most important of all, it would have been a pleasure to meet you and say hello if nothing else. I think it may behoove you to let your viewers know where your'e going in real time if you want even more support. Congrats on making a good choice working with Stu! PEACE OUT!

onthebeaches1 - 3 years ago
Hey guys. I don't do Twitter or Facebook so maybe I was just counting on Instagram. MYBAD! And....more than helping you get around town, I really dig your channel and your message about sailing with a purpose so I wanted to meet both of you! One of the most down to earth channels in the sailing world. Sailing with a purpose will be my mission as well when I cast off on November of 2020! YOU INSPIRE ME! PEACE OUT!
Adventure Adrift
Adventure Adrift - 3 years ago
Thanks for the props on the video and so sorry we didn't meet up, apologies for not letting you know we were in Tucson. We do try and keep some up date info on where we are via Twitter or Facebook or some kind of social media and we had done that in the Pacific Northwest, I think we totally forgot about doing that once in Arizona. We will have to work on better communicating real time places and find a good form to do that.

Howard I think with such a great community here most can take the good information and use it as they wish, hopefully Stu gets the right amount of business he deserves. He got busy with family and other things this year that kept him from sailing and we can't have that. ;)
Howard White
Howard White - 3 years ago
It will be interesting to see the community reaction to Adrift posting this video. Stu might have to get additional phone lines ;) I don't need a desalinator (my brother might, come to think of it...), but I really enjoyed seeing the presentation by all involved. I've been involved with information technology (read "automation") for many years. For such a system, simple is by far the best.
Adventure Adrift
Adventure Adrift - 3 years ago
100% agree Robert, exactly the reasons we loved working with him. I think it is hard to fake sincerity, just a good bloke not looking for fame and fortune.

Excellent and very informative. I emailed the guy after the installation vlog and he replied almost instantly; so what he said about response times was on the button. My question was filtering brakish water for tiny home off-grid living. Very interesting stuff. We were quoted years ago, can't remember the price, but it was totally off the charts and we had to forget it. Videos and companies like this give you hope that there are solutions that work and don't cost the earth. Hats off to Stu and a spot on company profile.

Awesome update Paul, we have found a very similar problem in sailing with windvanes. I get there are core elements in the metals and tooling etc to make them and you should indeed be rewarded for your hard work, BUT in marine it really seems like too many people take advantage of that and In see no reason for the exorbitant expense of some of these items like watermakers and windvanes among others.
