    In Stock Pool Supply (Santa Ana, CA) .. Cheap, but honest?

    I am in need of a new 1 HP pool pump. Last night I spent about an hour finding the very cheapest price on the internet for a Pentair SuperFlow Single Speed / Energy Efficient pump.

    The very cheapest (delivered to the door) was from a company called In Stock Pool Supply ... but I have never even heard of this company.

    They share the same business address in Santa Ana, CA as another company called A1 Pool Parts. What seems strange is that In Stock Pool Supply sells this pump for less money (delivered) than what A1 Pool Parts sells it for.

    Seems strange that there would be a price difference from two companies will the exact same address in California.

    Anyone here ever do business with In Stock Pool Supply?

    Thanks,
    Ron,

    After all these years, I still find myself sometimes looking for the VERY cheapest. A high percentage of the time, that often comes with some surprises.

    I have no insight into that particular company.

    Thanks duraleigh

    Here is the pump I am looking to buy from In Stock Pool Supply:

    I have always been very happy with the great service I have received from our good friends at Pool Supply World, but, after shipping, they are $60 more expensive than In Stock Pool Supply.

    That pump is model # 340038. It's not the Energy Efficient pump.

    I was looking to buy the model # 348023. That is the Energy Efficient pump

    Near the top, right corner of their web page is a header saying they are BBB accredited. If they are, they should show up in a search of the BBB database.
