    Taylor K-2006C-8 8-Pack for 80$

    Hi. My first post here.

    I just ordered a Taylor K-2006C-8 for 80$ on amazon. With shipping to canada the total was 210$!

    http://www.amazon.com/Taylor-K-2006C-8- ... lor+k-2006

    I don't understand how they can sell an 8 pack for 80$. Or maybe I'm missing something. Each pack are supposed to cost 120$...

    could they be out of date or something?

    What do you think?

    That is crazy. I suspect that they either mis-priced it, or it is actually a single kit and not an eight pack, or the kits are expired, or something. But you never know.

    By the by, they aren't allowed to ship to Canada, though there is some chance they will anyway.

    Re: Taylor K-2006C-8 8-Pack for 80$

    The shipping weight of 151 pounds is certainly appropriate to an 8-pack, not a single. Good deal for sure, if they honor it.

    That is certainly a very confusing ad ... sure looks like it should be for 8, but that price is crazy low.
    Then is says item weight 4 lbs and shipping weight 151 lbs ... That is a LOT of bubble wrap

    If you get the kit, let us know what it actually is. $45 shipping is certainly a lot if it is just 1 kit.

    Just got this message:

    Order ID 102-0270828-7847435:
    1 of Taylor K-2006C-8 - Service Complete (Chlorine Fas-Dpd), 8-Pack [ASIN: B004BGHFFW]

    ------------- Begin message -------------

    We no longer have these in stock. Amazon has not updated the current stock on this product for some reason. Please cancel the order so you are not billed!

    ------------- End message -------------

    To cancel your order, please click here:
    It was an answer to an message i sent with my order to ask if the product really will be what it is supposed to be. so it seems they didn't even told me it was a mistaken product but it was only a backordered one? Pretty strange...

    And no I don't have a 92 000 gallons pool, but 92 638 liters (18' x 36')! So that's around 24 500 gallons. I will correct this in my signature.

    p.s.: the item is still there on amazon! And still supposedly in stock...

    I suspected something like that.

    P.S. We're fine with your pool being shown in litres, just make the "L" designation in the sig too. we'd also like to see your general location too.
