I wouldn't have thought so. The primary issue of operational ability in these machines is the membrane and that (I think) will only get damaged by having polluted (oily) water being pushed thru it.
There are probably more educated opinions here but I don't tink that membranes degrade based on time alone.
It may simply be that technology has improved and there are similar machines available today that do a better job, reducing the value of the older technology substantially.
Do these machines come with an form of warranty?
