Dometic Marine said it reached an exclusive worldwide marketing agreement with Spot Zero Reverse Osmosis of Fort Lauderdale to market and sell its Spot Zero Fresh Water Reverse Osmosis systems and its Sea Xchange Sea Water Reverse Osmosis systems.
Dometic said the Spot Zero fresh water system uses reverse osmosis to reject about 98 percent of the total dissolved solids in any potable dock water supply, including viruses, cysts, bacteria and radioactive contaminants, creating clear, purified water for a spot-free rinse, drinking and ice-making. The Sea Xchange sea water system (watermaker) uses a conventional reverse osmosis process to convert sea water into potable water.
The Sea Xchange watermaker system will be on display at Booth East 1021 at the Seattle Boat Show, which starts Friday and continues through Feb. 1. Dometic will formally launch the product as the Dometic Sea Xchange watermaker Feb. 13-17 at the Miami International Boat Show.
“One of the biggest challenges for boaters heading out for lengthy journeys is ensuring safe, fresh water both at the dock and off-shore for washing with spot-free rinsing, drinking and ice-making. Spot Zero’s reverse osmosis systems make it possible to convert impure fresh water or seawater into clean, purified water. By eliminating the need to carry excessive water supplies, boat owners save fuel and can venture out for longer trips,” Dometic Marine vice president for aftermarket system sales Ken Taranto said.
“This brings immense benefit to pleasure boaters and sportfishermen, who will appreciate the convenience of having purified water at any port of call.”
