Was just going to order 2 new AC110's along with some other stuff from Pet Solutions when I noticed that instead of the usual ~$40.00, they are now $63.99 on the site.
After a making a phone call, I was told that there have been some changes made to the filter, and the prices have gone up.
Don't know what those "changes" might be, but a quick surf to Pet Smart's site, a print of the still (not sure for how much longer) $39.99 price, and a short drive to the local store for a price match, landed me 2 new AC110's for $39.99 each :dance: :dance: :dance: , and an irritated store manager.:mad: :mad:

I used the Petsmart printout myself for my AC500. God bless them. They didn't even bat an eye. Yes sir, No sir. Thank you for your time.

Very helpfull.

Just went to the Hagen website. Nothing appears to be all that different from the ac 110 that I got for 40$. Wouldn't be surprised if they were just catching up to the retail cost and trying to increase their profits a little.

No there are a few small changes in the Impeller/housing area and the basket latch seems to work better too.

That's all fine and good but I have to agree with DragonKeeper. Changes that insignificant don't warrant a 62% price increase. :confused:

I guess it varies - last I checked they were going for $70 Cdn at lfs around here.
