    Taylor Kits from ebay to Canada

    I know https://piscines-apollo.com is supposed to have a monopoly on taylor kits in canada, but I found these on ebay.ca

    http://www.ebay.ca/itm/TAYLOR-K-2006...0d1449c&_uhb=1

    http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Taylor-K2006-...item1e8b4c3909

    Would these be resonable ways to get K2006 kits in Canada for less than piscines-apollo?

    I would say it is worth a try until they get caught, VMinovations is a BIG pool supplier at least online so hopefully their stock rotates reasonably fast as there is a limited shelf life on the reagents and storage conditions are important (I always cringe when I see test kits at the big box stores stocked in the outdoor garden center)

    Don't blame Piscines-Apollo. It has nothing to do with them.

    All Canadian orders for Taylor products must eventually go through Taylor's master distributor in Canada, Lowry & Associates in Newmarket, Ontario. They are the ones who set the base price that all Canadian dealers must pay (including Piscines-Apollo).

    US dealers who ship Taylor products to Canada tend to get cut off after a while.

    I found some listings on eBay but shipping to Canada was $60 which pretty much wipes out the price differential so I just bought from Piscines-Apollo.
