Purchasing a polaris pump off ebay or other source online

zookeeper93May 24, 2012

I must replace my Polaris booster pump and have researched at a local pool supply store (Leslie's), who have given me a cost of $299. This includes 1-yr. mfg. warranty and all the associated hook-up hoses to tie in to my system.

I also researched eBay and have found that the same pump (same brand) is available, new in box, 1-yr mfg. warranty and all the associated hook up hoses, etc., for about $100 less.

The vendors I have researched have a return policy, and have high user ratings on eBay. The reduced cost also includes the shipping charge (free shipping).

My question - is this a smart move to buy online, or should I stay with the more expensive Leslie's?

If you are doing the install yourself, its perfectly acceptable. If you;re hiring a pool pro, get it from him. It may cost a couple bucks more but if it has an issue, will E-Bay or Leslie's show and and fix it under warranty?

Good points Scott. My husband, whom I let post the question, will be installing himself, so I suppose if there is an issue, he will have to go through Polaris himself and fix it himself.
Thank you for your reply.
