We love our Spectra T200 water-maker. It was not the least expensive choice and it was even more expensive if we had chosen the “automatic” model. After doing some research and getting some professional advice from J.T. Halden… we decided to try another way to automate the unit.
We installed this $35 lawn sprinkler timer (there are many models that would all do the same thing). We program it to rinse for 5 minutes after each session… and for 1 minute every day.
After 2 years… we have seen no issues at all.
