Which filters are you talking about? The RO membrane? If the later, almost all membranes are made by DOW. Check out http://www.appliedmembranes.com/ or http://www.kfswater.com/

As far as a manual is concerned, the key thing about a watermaker is to run it at about 800 to 825 PSI. You should also have a boost pump feeding the high pressure pump and have the feed water filtered through paper filters.

If you have specific questions, I can try to answer them for you. I don't know your unit, but in reality they're very simple in concept.
