Stephen and Lu Ann Yoder

Hi Steve & Vanessa,

I ultimately bought the Spectra Ventura. My primary reasons were low amp draw/gallon made and the fact that it was modular and the parts could be spread out. This was very important in my little 28 footer. I've finished the installation but haven't started it up yet because, once I do, I need to use it often unless I want to go through the pickling process.

I had a bit of a hassle making the purchase. The dealer tried to pass off a previously-installed unit as "New". It was pretty obvious when it arrived in a duct-taped, rebuilt cardboard box that originally held a Raritan toilet that something was amiss. The various cracks, scratches, nicks, etc. told me that this unit was not new. The dealer kept insisting that it was. I got the factory involved and they made it right. Said they'd work it out with the dealer but that I didn't need to be caught in the middle. So, kudos to the guys at Spectra in San Rafael.

Good luck to you. It was one of my scarier purchases because it was so expensive. You pay that much you want to be sure you're getting something really good and it's really hard to know ahead of time. But the Spectra and the Village Marine Tec units almost always seem to get good reviews.

-Steve
