All the Major Swimming Pool Equipment Suppliers are Raising Prices Starting November 1, 2020
We have just received confirmation from our suppliers that the big three pool equipment makers in the U.S. , Hayward, Pentair, and Zodiac, will be raising their prices effective November 1, 2020. Additionally, many other pool equipment makers such as Unicel are also stated as following suit and raising prices. As of today, October 1, 2020, we do not know the exact amount of the various increases. They will most likely range between 2 and 5 percent based on previous price increases done by these manufacturers.
So, if you know you need new pool filters for the coming pool season, you may want to shop now before these price increases go into effect. Annual price increases by the various pool equipment manufacturers are not uncommon. However, what is uncommon is that just about all of them are raising prices this year. Over the past 10 years or so, we have observed that price increases are not necessarily annual. Some years, certain manufacturers would not raise their prices while others did. Manufacturers like Unicel and Pleatco were observed raising their prices much less frequently than Hayward, Pentair, and Zodiac. Centurion Motors also seems to raise their prices almost every year.
We here at All Pool Filters 4 Less wanted to get the word out so people are not sticker shocked in 2021 when they see many items have had price increases.
Shopping Online for Quality, Brand Name Pool Filters? The Search is Over....All Pool Filters 4 Less
Do you maintain your own swimming pool? Or for that matter, do you maintain anyone's swimming pool? Just about everything is available for sale online today, including swimming pool filters and replacement cartridges. The problem with online shopping is that it isn't always clear exactly what you are getting in your order. Sometimes the search results bring back items that are similar to what you are looking for or are an exact lesser quality replacement of what you are looking for, so it is important to read the item details very closely.
This is particularly true when shopping for swimming pool filter replacement cartridges. Most all swimming pool filter manufacturers such as Hayward, Jandy, Sta-Rite, and Pentair make their own cartridges designed specifically to fit their own specific filter models. The original brand filter cartridges are designed to optimize the filtration capabilities of their pool filters to ensure sparkling clean water in your swimming pools. As with many consumer goods, there are also comparable items available such as those made by after-market third party companies. Some of the after-market companies such as Unicel and Pleatco, offer quality comparable filter cartridges for most of the top brand name pool filter models available. They have been designed, manufactured, and tested to ensure they provide similar filtration capabilities as the originals. Some others, however, are simply cheap imitations that have not been quality tested to ensure they provide the same level of filtration as the original.
Additionally, Hayward offers two replacement filter cartridges for most of their filter models: 1) the original 4 ounce filter fabric cartridge that is included with their filters at time of sale and 2) a 3 ounce filter fabric cartridge that they produce to provide a cost-effective alternative to the after-market cartridges being sold for their pool filters (part numbers end in BVS which stands for blue value series). These BVS filter cartridges should cost about 25% less than the original Hayward cartridges since they have 25% less filter fabric which results in the need to clean them more often. An easy way to tell the difference between the two besides the part number ending in BVS is that the Blue Value Series cartridges have blue end caps, while the original Hayward 4 ounce cartridges have black or grey endcaps.
At All Pool Filters 4 Less,our specialty is pool filter cartridges. We have a large variety of replacement filter cartridges available from both the original pool filter manufacturers in addition to quality after-market companies. All of our product descriptions clearly state the manufacturer of the filter cartridge as well other important information such as the cartridge measurements, square feet of filter fabric, and the filter models that the cartridge is intended for.
