Experience the epitome of freshwater production with the Stella Land-Based Watermaker. Crafted from the renowned Gen 3 system, the Land-Based Stella Watermaker encapsulates excellence in a framed kit, primed for immediate plug-and-play functionality. These compact desalination units cater to diverse water sources including bore, brackish, or seawater, offering a sustainable solution for agricultural, horticultural, and domestic applications. With a production capacity exceeding 240 liters per hour, Stella Watermakers redefine efficiency and durability, embodying a testament to Australian engineering ingenuity.

Supplying rural communities, farmers, and businesses across Australia and the South Pacific, Stella Watermakers stand as a beacon of reliability in water-scarce environments. Built for resilience, each manual-operated system boasts heavy-duty construction, ensuring longevity in the harshest conditions. Pre-plumbed for effortless installation, Stella Watermakers epitomise simplicity and effectiveness, revolutionising freshwater accessibility for Australian agriculture and beyond.

Simple manual operation, no electronics

Stella have removed the electronic automation which makes watermakers difficult to use, unreliable and even harder to fix. Just two valves on the control panel and a knob to wind up the pressure. Comes with a laminated ”Quick Start-Up Sheet” with step-by-step instructions so anyone can make water quickly.

Super performance and reliability

Stella watermakers make a lot of water fast! 80-240 litres per hour with our AC units. When it comes to making water ”the quicker the better” so you don’t have to do it every day or for long periods. With the simple, quality components and lack of electronics comes unequalled reliability, critical when in water-scarce areas.

Quality 316 stainless steel components

From our high-pressure pump to our membrane housing end caps and fittings, all-metal components are 316-grade stainless steel (or Duplex), designed for a harsh marine environment. We appreciate quality and have sourced the best components from around the world for our watermakers. 

Low maintenance and running costs

A simpler, better-engineered watermaker with fewer components means less maintenance is required. Running costs are minimal but will depend on how often it’s used and how well it’s maintained. Consumables such as membranes, filters, pickling solutions, and pump oil are all standard items available from us or worldwide.

Plug and Play design for easy installation

All Land-Based Stella Watermakers are delivered as a framed kit with all pre-plumbing connected. This means the systems can be fitted wherever there is available space, just hook up the hoses to the water source and tank, plug in the electrical cords for the pump and turn it on. 

No flashing lights or failing circuit boards

Fully automated watermakers use a multitude of electronics including a microprocessor, circuit boards, solenoid valves, timers, relays, pressure switches, led screens, flashing lights and salinity probes. Great when they work, but the cost goes up and reliability goes down! Any experienced cruiser knows that the simpler the equipment the better. Even seasoned superyacht engineers prefer our watermakers to others with all the ”bells and whistles”.

No high maintenance energy recovery pumps

Stella watermakers use industry-standard 316 stainless steel triplex high-pressure pumps with solid ceramic plungers, designed specifically for marine desalination. Parts and services for these pumps are available worldwide.

No cracking plastic membrane end plugs

Stella provides watermakers with high quality Duplex 2205 stainless steel end caps for high strength and corrosion resistance.

High-Quality High-pressure hoses

Stella provide the highest quality hoses with Quality 316 Stainless fittings. The hoses are protected with an anti-wear wrap to help protect and prolong the life of the hoses.

No proprietary components

We don’t use special manufactured components such as filters or membranes that force you to buy replacements from us and cost ”an arm and a leg”. We use industry standard components that you can easily find worldwide. If you are in a remote area, we can ship parts fast if required or help you find them locally.
