I agree with Ping. The only price drops I've seen in materials are for wood. For everything else, most people that I consider experts tell me there's not much relief they see for the next 2 years unless there's a global financial crisis or some other "black swan" event.

Roughly one year ago, aquarite 40K and 25K both go on sale.

Sale price makes them only $200 more than generics, but you get 3 year warranty, which I consider is good deal.

Not sure history will repeat itself, but you can keep an eye on the deals.

I paid $804 for the aqr15 in 2017, thats the whole kit.
Im just wondering if the summer heat and chlorine-magedon or whatever they are calling it is driving people to swg. Its almost double the price, if i was paying $150 a bucket of pucks, id consider the swg too. Well maybe the vendors just adjusted as cost per lb of potential chlorine.
Ill have the pool company just use CL till spring. Maybe maybe prices will return to normal. I was wrong a t15 is 650$, not 600.
At least the summer heat is passing so i can keep up with less CL than july.
