Some More Info ...
Affordable & Reliable - Our Katadyn PowerSurvivor 40E lets cruisers and sailors go further and stay longer without the worry of having enough quality water available. This is the smallest and most affordable powered watermaker on the market and the only one that converts to manual operation in the event of a power failure.
Simplicity - The 40E contains 40% fewer parts than its popular predecessor, the Power Survivor 35. Simplified construction and rugged design make the 40E remarkably easy to install, operate and maintain.
Compactness - Extraordinarily compact, the 40E can be installed in the nooks and crannies otherwise unusable in many yachts.
Efficiency - No watermaker draws so few amps. Using only 4 amps, the 12 volt 40E can run for extended periods on alternative power alone.
- Patented Energy Recovery System - The Katadyn Energy Recovery system takes advantage of stored energy in the high pressure reject water that is typically wasted. The pressurized reject water is recirculated to the back side of the piston to aid the next stroke. This energy is kept in the system, resulting in less work to achieve fresh water.
Great Water Output - Our PowerSurvivor 40E will output 1.5 gallons per hour. That means you will have enough water for you and your passengers.
Durability - The heart of the 40E is the rugged stainless steel high-pressure pump. Armed for the rigors of the marine environment with unmatched reliabilty, this watermaker is built to last and is covered by a superior 3 year warranty.
Plus, we donate a portion of our revenues to water sustainability projects - to keep our earth's water safe and accessible for all of us. When you purchase our Katadyn Products - YOU are making the world a better place.
