AQUA WHISPER PRO – KEY FEATURES
The Aqua Whisper Pro watermaker is suited for charter, offshore fishing, and ocean cruising. It’s traditional manual functions and touch-pad control panel allows simple operation and digital + analog instrumentation for redundancy. The Aqua Whisper Pro’s high pressure pump is engineered to be quieter than conventional high pressure pumps, and operates for 2,500 hours before any maintenance is required.Easy to use, easy to upgrade
The Aqua Whisper Pro’s semi-automatic operation requires only one pressure adjustment to varying feed water conditions. User-friendly touch pad control panel is simple to use and easy to understand. Multiple product water production capabilities from 450 gallons / 1,703 liters to 1800 gallons / 6,814 liters per day (19 gal / 71 lit – 75 gal / 284 lit per hour). All Aqua Whisper Pro models are “in-field” upgradable to higher production capacities.Manage critical functions from any location
The LCD touch screen acts as your watermaker’s first mate, and will assist your efforts to maintain, guide, and configure the Aqua Whisper Pro anyway you wish. Vital system functions and gauges are reported through the display and remote, and can be accessed at any time. The Aqua Whisper Pro gives operators maximum control with the ability to do more than ever before.Fresh Water Flush on frame
The AQW Pro compact features all replaceable pre and post filters on frame, for the easiest installation and operation, including the carbon filter for the fresh water flush that comes standard.
Alternatively, for the more intense applications like i.e. dirty sea water, charter cruises, offshore fishing or ocean crossings, the AQW Pro is available with heavier duty commercial pre-filter and oil water separator in place of the standard pre-filters on frame, for longer lasting cartridges and less frequent replacement.

AQUA WHISPER PRO- CONSUMABLES
Whether for the pre-filtration stage or post treatment stage, the Sea Recovery R.O. Filter Elements are an essential part in proper system performance.Membrane Element Storage
These chemicals inhibit bacterial growth while maintaining the high flux and salt rejection of the R.O. Membrane Element.Membrane Element Cleaning Compound #1 (SRC MCC-1) is an alkaline cleaner designed to clean biological fouling and slight oil fouling from the R.O. membrane element.Membrane Element Cleaning Compound #2 (SRC MCC-2) is an acid cleaner designed to clean calcium carbonate and other mineral deposits from the R.O. membrane element.Membrane Element Cleaning Compound #3 (SRC MCC-3) is used for iron fouling. If the system’s R.O. membrane element is fouled with rust from iron piping, then SRC CC-3 may be used for effective removal of light or moderate rust fouling.
Crankcase Oil is a specially formulated hydraulic lubricant with anti-wear, de-oxidizer, and rust inhibitor additives.Cleaning Compounds
