I purchased my PIS used off ebay. It was $114 including shipping. I think that it was a really good deal. I don't know how the advanced works but I have an older PIS and I love it. I have had no problems and I use several times a day. In fact, I am pumping right now.

How do you know if a used pump is safe to use? Are there certain parts that you should replace or can it pretty much be reused with a good cleaning?

If you're looking for a used pump, go with the Ameda Purely Yours. Its a "closed-system" pump which basically means there is no way that milk can get into the tubing or the pump. The PIS is an open system, so its possible for milk to backup into the pump or tubing. (which could lead to mold, etc) I don't think that happens often, but if you're buying used why take the chance. With either pump I'd recommend replacing the actual parts (excluding the pump).

The previous poster (pixie_styx) was right about the Ameda being safer if you MUST buy a used pump. Not that Ameda would admit it. Right now because of HIV/AIDS, the breast pump companies are real skittish about used breast pumps.

With the Medela pumps there is a chance of mold and viruses getting in the motor itself. Replacing the exterior parts is not enough. You will notice that the Medela pumps have instructions on how to get milk out of the tubing after an accidental overflow. Ameda and the Avent Isis IQ Duo do not have that problem.

For more info on the dangers of used pumps and how the viruses get inside the Medela motor, check out this used breast pumps information. It's three pages long, but best to read the entire article.
