The Alien 3 model continues the Alien series technology but with a few significant enhancements. A remote mounted touch screen allows the owner to choose a location up to 75 feet from the main control system providing the convenience of operating the system in the main living area or helm. The new touch screen operation is more simplistic with clearly labeled buttons and animation making it easier for the non-technical person to use the system. The touch screen also now incorporates displays for water quality and production rate so there is no need to go below to check those gauges. The enhanced pressure control system and display further enhances safety and improves membrane longevity to protect your investment. Our three phase, VFD controlled high pressure pump is quieter and draws very low amperage at startup, making it possible to run from a 4KW inverter. Industrial design techniques and components provide the same reliability as previous models but now with a smaller footprint. Turn it on, push a button, and walk away. The system will handle everything from activating the pumps and monitoring the water quality to automatically flushing the system when the cycle is completed.

Pre Sale Questions

Water maker systems work by utilizing an extremely fine filter called a membrane through which raw water is pushed via a high pressure pump. The membrane only permits water molecules to pass through and rejects 99.9% of everything else including salt, bacteria, and most viruses.
As a guideline, most cruisers use 20 gallons of water per day per person. If you are planning on having 2 people on board, you should have a minimum of 40 gallons per day available. For 2 people a 20 gallon per hour water maker is sufficient.
It is not recommended to make water while underway because of the chance of drawing fuel or oil into the system which would destroy the membrane.

Most Asked Technical Questions

All filters should be changed annually even if they do not need to be changed.
You will need a 20 amp dedicated electrical service. space for the equipment, a minimum of 1 thru-hull but 2 are recommended, and a clean, dry environment for the control system
With proper maintenance the membranes should last for 5-10 years.
There is very little maintenance on our system. However, there are some checks to do and are listed in the user’s manual. Some checks include looking at the piping and valving once per month and, even though the system establishes the pressure automatically, you should visually verify the pressure every 10th use.
