About Compact Desalination Kits

There are several reasons why someone might want a compact desalination system instead of a larger, more traditional one. In some situations, limited space may be available for installing a desalination system. Compact systems can be designed to fit into tight spaces, such as small boats, recreational vehicles (RVs), or compact living spaces. Those interested in compact marine desalination systems would benefit from learning more about them from experts. This is why ECHOTec Watermakers has penned this blog for our readers. Continue reading below to learn more about your next compact desalination kit.

What Is the Smallest Desalination System That We Make? 

The size of a home water desalination system can vary widely depending on its purpose and capacity. The smallest desalination systems are often designed for personal or small-scale use, such as providing fresh water for an individual or a small group. Because some people want to know how much water a desalination kit can hold, and others are looking at the dimensions of the machine, it is hard to pinpoint which unit would be considered the smallest.

If, however, you are looking for something compact, there are a few small-scale reverse osmosis systems that are designed for household use or small businesses. These systems can fit under sinks or countertops and can produce several gallons of fresh water daily. They are compact compared to industrial-scale reverse osmosis units. Some of our smallest units include:

What Is in a Home Desalination Kit? 

A home desalination kit is a compact and usually simplified system designed for individuals or small-scale use to desalinate seawater or brackish water and produce fresh water. These kits are typically intended for educational purposes, small-scale experiments, or emergency situations with limited access to fresh water. They provide a way for individuals to learn about desalination and obtain small quantities of fresh water for personal use.

What equipment do you need to desalinate water at home? The most important parts of a kit include the desalination apparatus, solar component (if applicable), collection container, tubing and connections, installation and usage instructions, and educational materials. 

What Is in a Solar Desalination Kit? 

A solar desalination kit is a specialized device or system that uses solar energy to power the desalination of saltwater or brackish water, producing fresh water. These kits are designed to harness the energy from the sun to drive the desalination process, making them environmentally friendly and suitable for off-grid or remote locations. The key components of a solar desalination kit are the following: 

  • Solar collector
  • Desalination apparatus
  • Water storage container
  • Tubing and connections

What Is a Desalination Kit for Boats?

Much like a compact desalination kit, a watermaker for yachts system is designed to be as compact as possible. A desalination kit for boats has much of the same components as the other kits detailed above, except that they often come with different setups depending on the power source you will be using on your boat. Two of our most popular products for boats are our 12V desalinator and our AC desalination system.
