All the Major Swimming Pool Equipment Suppliers are Raising Prices Starting May 1, 2021
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 May 1, 2021. Additionally, many other pool equipment makers such as Unicel are also stated as following suit and raising prices. As of today, March 21, 2021, 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 and in the middle of they 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.
