I worked out with my pool builder to install the natural gas heater if I ordered it on my own. He said I'd get a better price by ordering it online than he would get from his distributor and he'd hook it up for free with the pool equipment if I have it here. That will save me around $1000. So, I'm looking online and keep running across sites I'm not familiar with : Doheny, American Best Pool Supply, Pool Supply Unlimited, Pool Supplies Superstore, etc....in addition to places like Amazon. Prices are all over the place, and I just want to get the best price without having to worry about a scam site, or getting a used/refurbished unit. For those who have ordered things online, what are the most reputable, reliable pool equipment websites to order from?

Just fyi....I've already checked with Marina Pool and Spa and they can't help with the heater.

I've seen some complaints from people receiving damaged heaters from Amazon. I took a chance with that and it was fine. I think Amazon just does a better job in some regions than others. I order quite a bit from Amazon and I never have damage issues. Of course, you have to pay attention to who the actual seller is, too.

Most of those suppliers you mentioned also sell through Amazon, so take that for what it's worth. You could also check eBay, for Buy It Now and straight sales, no auction. I got my pump and filter from eBay and I couldn't be more pleased with it!
