PUR 160E Watermaker

Would anyone have any experience/comments regarding the PUR 160E watermaker? Have come across a "deal" on one still in the box and would like to hear from those who have experience with this unit. Thanks.

replacement membranes are rather expensive to replace, I would check with PUR and find out the storage shelf life first.
That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.

Power use and water output about as advertised. Very compact, simple installation and maintenance, easy pickling. I have had mine for about 4 years with no problems.
