    Price for Used Filtreau 20 RDF?

    One of these for sale in Northern Ireland so I'd have a bit of travelling from Dublin to pick it up.

    The guy is looking for 700 for an 18 month old filter with a wash pump. They are around 950 new. I'm thinking this is a bit steep and closer to 500 is more realistic?

    There were also problems with the earlier versions of these where plastic cogs were wearing and required replacement so that also has to be factored in.

    I think it’s a tad overpriced, I’d rather pay, if I wanted one another 250 and have it delivered and have the warranty.

    That's what I'm thinking. He offered to throw in two air pumps as well, but that doesn't make much difference.

    I've been in the aquarium hobby for many years and there are some people that have very unrealistic expectations when it comes to secondhand gear. IMO, once something has been used for a year or so, expect to get half what you paid for it if selling it on. The island of Ireland is a very small market for this type of pond equipment and I'm guessing this one will be for sale for a while.
