Rainman Watermaker - Portable Fresh Watermaker

Portable Desalination System

Rainman Watermaker

Water Everywhere

Rainman Watermaker: A compact and portable solution designed to generate a fresh water supply from salt or brackish water.

The system consists of a Pressure Supply Unit (PSU); which pressurizes the source water, and a Reverse Osmosis Unit; which desalinates the water with a membrane, removing impurities and creating fresh potable water. The optional Rainman flow gauge enables the system to be used in brackish or fresh water applications.

Built to last

We use only top quality components from the best manufacturers: Honda, DOW FILMTEC, General Pump, Jabsco. Our filters, membranes and replacement parts are non-proprietary for ease of service worldwide.


Our system can easily be transferred between boats or used in remote land based locations. You can even use Rainman as a salt water pressure washer with our optional pressure gun attachment.

The Rainman Advantage

Convert Salty Sea Water to Fresh Water

Our simple and robust system is designed for ease of use and low maintenance. This fresh approach to desalination eliminates unnecessary componentry and electronics. Not only will the initial cost of a Rainman watermaker be lower than other systems, but the simple design and high build quality reduces ongoing maintenance costs.

Flexibility – choose to install your system or run it portable, allowing you to reduce weight while not cruising.
Reliability – using simple pumps and no electronics maximises the uptime of your watermaker.
Lower life cycle cost – not only will the initial price be lower, but ongoing maintenance cost is minimised.
High output – up to 140 litres per hour (37 gph).
Investment retention – keep your watermaker when you change boats.

Although the Rainman watermaker was originally designed as a portable system not requiring installation, many of our customers choose to partially or fully install the system in their boat.
