Rodi unit

I'm looking to get an rodi unit I seen this on CL wanted to ask if anyone has used it, if it works good, and if the price is right. The guy came down to $100, he said it only has about 100 gallon put through it.

You can't really tell how many gallons has been put through it, but It's definitely a good unit. I have a similar one. It looks like it has the in line TDS meter and a pressure gauge. It appears to be this one-

Say the filters need replaced if that is what they are called sorry never had any experience with this before. What is a cost to replace what would need to be replaced. Thanks for all the help.

You'd probably save about $50 buying the used one

Looks like the unit I bought for $180 from BRS. I'd get it.

The only expensive replacement is the RO membrane. Those usually cost about 40 bucks. the other filters are 3 to 5 dollars a piece, and then you have DI resin. You will need to change that out regularly anyway.
