Been tempted to do that myself Jprox. If it weren't for the cost of the electric motors, I could probably put a hurting on several filter manufacturers too. They'd win because of volume discounts on the electric stuff that I know I couldn't afford to buy hundreds or thousands of. It's just irksome to see a slightly bigger item go for 15 to 20 dollars more, when you know all they did was add 2 cents worth of plastic it.

you know i am alright with the big 3 making a profit on filters, i mean if you do your shopping you can find them for 20-30 bucks, or go to walmart and get the same filter (under a generic name) for 60% of the orginal price. the filters are injected or blow molded, which requires having those vaccum plastic molding devices on hand which must cost a pretty penny, to install and mantain

i just get urked by arcylic devices retailing for so much, when all they do is glue together little sheets of plastic. looks at what this turd is asking for.. http://cgi.ebay.com/Adjustable-U-Tub...QQcmdZViewItem

There is a prime example of someone jacking up the shipping to hopefully insure they make a profit. That just gets to me.
