The easy way to a spot-free boat rinse, these portable water deionizers
eliminate unsightly scale and water-spotting that mineral-laden water leaves
behind. Designed for use with city water at the dock, they remove all dissolved
solids, resulting in mineral-free water that rinses your washed boat sparkling
clean. “Dual-Bed Standard” model consists of two tanks plumbed in series which
produce roughly 460 gallons of mineral-free water-good for about 25 rinses of a
30-foot boat. Capacity estimates are based on a water supply with a TDS (Total Dissolved
Solids) content of 250ppm.
