The AC system is by far our most popular watermaker. It’s a very simple and highly reliable system that can make up to 140 litres (37 gallons) of fresh potable water per hour.
Options exist for this system to be run as portable without any plumbing or plumbed in with a minimum footprint installation.
Our AC system is a great option when you want to make a lot of water quickly and get back to enjoying yourself.
The system is made up of a pressure supply unit (PSU) and a reverse osmosis unit (RO).
Both parts are required to make a complete watermaker. The PSU lifts the seawater, filters out the sediment and puts the system under high pressure, while the RO unit extracts fresh water from the stream of pressurised seawater.
Most of the water goes out to waste as brine output, while about 20% of the volume is extracted as fresh potable water for your tanks.
Different RO options exist for you to select with your AC Rainman system, each to achieve their own specific objective.
With recent advancements in generators, batteries, and solar power generation, you have several options for powering the AC system.
Originally designed to run off of a minimum of a Honda 2kW generator, it will be easily powered by your inbuilt generator or a quality 2kVA inverter.
Choose either a 230VAC/50Hz or 115VAC/60Hz option to suit the power available in your situation.
Our traditional system in the blue case can be used as either portable or installed. If you wish to install it, it becomes a two box installation. Various approaches that can be utilised include:
You have three basic reverse osmosis (RO) options, depending on your water requirements, space available, and budget.
All three RO options are compatible with the AC PSU and available in either the cased and naked configurations.

Our most common configuration with the AC system due to having the highest output and best overall value. Twice the output of the other options.
A great option if you are physically space constrained. Also common if this is a backup system on a larger vessel as it can be stowed in smaller spaces.
Our entry level water maker system is best suited for those on a budget. It can be upgraded to a high output system at a later date by adding a second membrane.
The system can be purchased either as the traditional blue case version or in the Naked configuration. The pricing, performance and power consumption are identical between the two options, so your specific requirements control which is best suited for your application. The table summarises the differences between the two options.

The optional control panel provides a remote management capability for your installed Rainman watermaker. It’s a highly presentable and functional add-on component that will enhance your Rainman user experience.
It is an injection moulded ASA acrylic panel that remains true to Rainman’s reputation of elegant simplicity.
Your Rainman watermaker is a very robust piece of equipment, but caring for certain aspects will prolong its life. Regularly flushing your Rainman with fresh water will maximise the life of your watermaker membranes.
The optional autoflush system incorporates a solid state programmable timer that will flush your Rainman watermaker after each use and every seven days thereafter. It incorporates built in protection if your boat loses power during or between flush cycles.
While the base system will be sufficient for many customers, a number of options are available to get more out of your Rainman watermaker.
Your new Rainman system will arrive with enough spares and consumables to keep you going for a while, so most customers do not need to order more with initial purchase. There are a variety of items you will need over time to keep your system running for many years.
