    We just purchased poly pipe from the Local John Deere and the price has went UPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!. Almost $40 per roll of 1x300. They said price would jump another $3 dollars tommorow!

    Incredible.

    Does anyone want to go half with me on a machine that makes poly pipe?

    Hey Tony from Toledo we are placing our spring order for a semi truck load @ 31.5 per roll, want in? Today I am going to try to knock that down to 30 per roll since we go through 1500 rolls a summer.

    $31.50 for 300' roll of 1"? Wow that's a steal. Just early ordered a bunch at 15.50 per 100' for 100# NSF. Looking at crude oil prices it will probably get worse before it gets better. My supplier also raising all poly and pvc fitting prices by 12% starting 2nd week of April.

    Time to raise prices,again , any sprinlker material made of plastic will have to go up , they are all made with oil. Fuel for the trucks and equipment, fuel to give "free estimates" , shipping cost are rising etc, etc. I anticipated the increased costs , based on the fact that crude oil prices were steadly rising when they normally drop late winter . They are stabilizing a bit now , but historically the up coming summer demand causes an increase in late April. I raised 19 % across the board for installs .
