I bought a pool pump from Pump Warehouse last Spring. There was a special price on the replacement pump I needed. He (Joe) talked me into a 'better' pump for my needs at a higher price. He shipped the discounted pump and charged the higher price.
10 months later the pump (previous one lasted 10 years) is screeching from the bearings. I want to make a warranty claim (1 year warranty). I can't get a return call.
IF he answers the phone he'll say 'Let me look up your order and I'll call you right back.' That's the last you'll hear from him.
Spend the extra few dollars and buy from a reputable dealer. You'll save the aggravation of dealing with a dishonest business and you'll save the effort of having to do the work twice to replace your broken pump.
Monetary Loss: $220.
