Rainman 12 Volt DC Watermaker

$4,663.00

The 12VDC system is the Rainman Watermaker that consumes the least power.

It’s a very simple and highly reliable system that can make up to 34 liters (9 gallons) of fresh potable water per hour.

Options exist for this system to be run completely portable without any plumbing or fully plumbed in with a minimum footprint installation.

Our 12VDC system is a great option if you don’t have AC power available to you but want to avoid the complexities and maintenance requirements of more efficient energy recovery systems.

With recent advancements in batteries, solar, and wind power, it is easier than ever to have sufficient usable amp-hours available for running your appliances.

Our 12VDC system requires 410 watts, or about 30 amps, to operate.

INSTALLED OR PORTABLE WATERMAKER: Our traditional system in the blue case can be used as either portable or installed. If you wish to install it, it becomes a two box installation. Various approaches that can be utilized include:

  • Keep it portable, pulling it out and setting it up each time you wish to use it.
  • Leave the unit in a locker, but pull out the hoses and throw overboard to make water, avoiding the need to move the system around on your deck.
  • Keep the system portable, but use a cam-lock fitting to temporarily plumb the system into a teed deck wash fitting. This gives the benefits of an installed system while using your portable unit while underway.
  • Fully plumb the system in, including the autoflush system.

It is worth noting that due to the lower output and shorter power cord of our 12VDC, most customers with this system will choose to fully install the watermaker.
