Pur 06 rebuild cost

Does anyone have a feel for how much is costs to do a complete rebuild of a Pur 06 Powersurvivor manual desalinator? Filters, seals, other?

I have one that was never used and sat in my garage for many years. They cost many hundreds of dollars new so I'm wondering if I should keep it and buy a rebuild kit if I ever need to take it cruising or just sell it for $30 and be done with it?

thanks in advance,

John

$340 for a membrane replacement kit on Katadyn web page. Is it worth it? Should I just leave it in the garage and buy the replacement kit before the next long trip?

My lady had a Powersurvivor back in the day and she got so disgusted with the unit and the company that she basically sold it for 30 bucks. There's much better products on the market now.

If you're planning on keeping it, I would buy the kit now, rather than wait. The reason is that the kit may get discontinued. Without it, the watermaker is useless. With it, you have a decent, if small, watermaker for survival purposes if nothing else.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
