This application is a good illustration of SLCE watermakers design philosophy (easy to install, easy to operate).
Indeed, this unit, a SD21-404 producing 20m3/24h, has been installed and commissioned by the user himself within half a day on a remote island in the Philippines. Now, the unit operates 8h daily.
Not only does the unit improves the freshwater quality available on the island, it also reduces its cost. In this case, the cost used to be between 25 and 35 USD/m3. With the SD21-404 R/O unit, the cost has dropped as low as 3 USD/m3 (power consumption included).
