Katadyn Survivor 35 (Military Version)

Hi, all

Has anyone picked up a Katadyn Survivor 35 to have as an emergency watermaker on board?

I know these are $2,000 new, and require yearly treatment of the membrane. However, I also see used "military units" listed for $350 to $500 on ebay (some that have been treated, some not). There's also indications that Katadyn might refurb used units for $350.

I know the 40e has the 12 volt option, but hard plumbing something into a smaller boat that may never be used seems like overkill. Also, the portable could be used on a life raft.
