Hey, Just wanted some references to a good Pond Supply website in the states that sell Discontinued Pond Supplies or at Wholesale prices? I checked out 123ponds.com and that was a Joke! They sell the same items I can get on Amazon.com listed at $400 and they list them for $550+ as an example and say they are a "CLEARANCE" Item :LOL:

Maybe any overstock site would work too, if not I guess I can stick to E-bay and Amazon, but it's worth a try :dunno:

Just went and checked this link they are selling seahorse 1hp for $349.99 I bought mine from foster&smith for $289.99 they have catalog and online sales sometimes cheaper online.
What did you pay for shipping? They have the same pump on E-bay for $344 free shipping

I did find a wholesaler online but you have to buy in bulk .My son is a contractor but with this stuff he only gets the contractors discount and not all companies will give it to you .That fish place in PA is good ,I visited there store when I was up there .Pet mountain has free shipping and no taxes on orders over 49 dollars all the time .They have a big sale on stuff now .I bought up stuff

Jason you know that old adage never look a gift horse in the mouth, well the same can be said for these discount sites .
We buy all our books from Amazon and have bought equipment via ebay before saving a small fortune in money like the koi measuring and viewing bowl we bought for £19.00 normal price £90.00
Plus to email dealers for catologes so you can compare prices with these discount sites

I don't even trust ebay ,I bought an aerator from a guy on there and it came broken and sent pics to him how damaged the box was and he would do nothing and ebay did nothing for me either .That was over 3 years ago .Now if I buy there I buy from 1 that actually has a store sight also .The guy had a great reputation until all the complaints started coming in at once .I guess ebay banned him because I have not seen him on since .

ebay is more or less a dead loss as far as a place to sell for special interest collectors, untrustworthy, bad reviews, high costs, bad risks, pitfall traps, awful rates of fraud and theft, misselling, hostile and misleading, rigged dsr and feedback ratings. Little more than a revolving to sucker sellers gullible enough to take the risk, sell at a loss

Might be time to try other venues like amazon, ebid.net, bonanza, webstore, which are far better than what ebay has degraded to.

Also, local markets on facebook, craigslist, yard sales, much better venues than ebay for buyers and special interest sellers to get along.

Well I did get an account setup with Discountpondsupplies.com but they don't save you money lol. I can get the same prices or cheaper on e-bay and amazon for some of the stuff they carry. There are certain things that are cheaper like spitters, they have a great veriety of spitters ranging from $2 to $20 and most I have never seen before. I have ordered all of my pond supplies from E-bay and Amazon with 0 problems with either. I got out bid the other night on a TotalPond 3,600 GPH eco pump for $42 free shipping by a dollar, I was mad, especially only 3 seconds left when I made my bid :censored:

No they were last year but my insider who is the manager said that what they get to sell is from local stores that get rid of there stuff from last year ,She told me they should be getting closeout stuff from lowes and home depot in March but it would depend on where your store is .She lets me know ahead as soon as the stuff comes in so I get first pick .Last year they got stuff from online stores also since ebay warehouse is right here in Martinsville VA .Last year they had a lot of stuff for pets .I posted it last year as soon as it went on the shelves
