Survivor 35 Water Maker

Hi All!! I'm considering buying a Survivor 35 Water Maker from a surplus store on eBay from "equipmentpartssales" Has anyone ever bought one, and what was your experience like? Did you actually need to get a new membrane, etc?

Here are the details:

1 KATADYN PUR 35 DESALINATOR WATERMAKER REVERSE OSMOSIS
THIS UNIT IS HAS NEVER BEEN USED, BUT HAS BEEN IN STORAGE FOR A FEW YEARS WITHOUT ITS YEARLY BIOCIDE TREATMENT. ACCORDING TO KATADYN, IT WILL NEED A NEW MEMBRANE. THE HOSES ARE ALL IN PERFECT CONDITION.
A NEW MEMBRANE CAN BE PURCHASED FROM KATADYNE. COST WILL BE NEAR $300.00. THEY EASY TO INSTALL.
THIS IS A HAND-POWERED PUMP DESALINATOR WHICH USES REVERSE OSMOSIS TO REMOVE SALT FROM WATER.
MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE WITH A BOAT.
COMES WITH 1 LAMINATED INSTRUCTION CARD.
MAKES APPROXIMATELY 1.2 GALLONS OF DRINKABLE WATER PER HOUR.
WEIGHS ONLY 7 POUNDS!
TREAT WITH BIOCIDE FOR PRESERVATION ,THE INSTRUCTION WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO INSTALL AND CLEAN THE BIOCIDE OUT
BIOCIDE IS USED TO STOP BACTERIAL GROWTH AND SHOULD BE REPLACED EACH YEAR
MANUFACTURERS SUGGEST RETAIL PRICE IS $1500
A MUST HAVE FOR SEA GOING BOATS
ITEM IS NEW.

Thanks very much!!
