A decent quality unit is going to run you $150 to $200....

) for $45 and the RO
membrane $50. So far I'm into it for $145 but sucks for me I was setting it all up today and found out the water pressure in my house is too low to run it. I had to order a RO
booster pump for $85. So now I'm into it for $230. Still cheaper then it would have been if I bought it new.
That's the problem with buying used... unless you get the thing for free. In addition to the used price, you're in almost another $75-$100 to change the pre-filters & membrane, which you kinda have
to do because you really have no way of knowing what kind of life they've had...... unless it's a top end system, and you know what you're looking at, you're really better off getting a new one.
