The Little Wonder Watermaker is an indispensable friend when out in the open ocean.
Produced by Village Marine, the Little Wonder watermaker is able to produce 7 to 8 gallons per hour (GPH) of perfectly drinkable water, out of even the saltiest of salt waters (up to 32,000 parts per million in concentration of salt in the water).
Ah, the beauties of science… Little Wonder watermakers, along with other desalination systems like the Sea Quencher line, also by Village Marine, use the process of reverse osmosis in order to transform salt water into fresh, drinkable water (also perfect for long showers and other usage!).
How Watermakers Work – Reverse Osmosis in A Nutshell
Harnessing the powers of reverse osmosis was first developed by observing nature. The process works when a semi-permeable (porous / penetrable) material naturally separates a solution into pure and concentrated parts as it passes through the material, acting almost like a filter.
Seawater contains many kinds of solids, the vast majority being common table salt. The main goal of any desalination process is a significant reduction in these solids.
In reverse osmosis watermakers (desalinizadores, or removers of “sal” = salt), solids are blocked from passing into the pure drinking water tank, and are carried along the membrane surface and eventually drained from the system.
Parker Village Marine, Manufacturer of Little Wonder – Who NASA, Navy, The Army and FEMA trust for their Desalination Needs
Parker Village Marine (VMT), has a storied and decorated history.
For more than 30 years, Parker Village Marine has developed desalination systems and watermakers not only for recreational boaters, but for some of the most challenging environments – the middle of the ocean, 800 feet below the sea, offshore oilrigs, deserts, and disaster areas.
NASA and FEMA relied on Parker Village Marine to develop a self-contained reverse osmosis systems for it’s disaster relief program. The Navy requires water of the ultimate purity for their submarines’ nuclear reactors, and have selected Parker to do so. The army relied on Parker Village Marine to keep their hospital going when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.
No one knows watermaking better than Parker Village Marine. And if you’re a recreational boater, you too can enjoy their freshwater system manufacturing genius in their smaller Little Wonder models, for $5k or less!
