Why is there such a big difference in pricing on E Bay for the 26-99's?  Chinese knock offs?

Some buy in bulk and redistribute the savings. There is no Chinese Grundfos to my knowledge, the $150 and $300 ones are identical

The supplier I was going to get my pump from offered me a Wasser 25110s and said it was a 26-99 Chinese Knock-off for $275 CAD or $205 USD. That's about half of what he wanted for the 26-99.Not getting my pump there anymore, found a much better deal.
Don't know what type of pump that actually is but thought someone might know.

I think there are several brands of those Chinese knockoff pumps out there. They seem to make more trouble with electrical issues, broke impellers, etc . At least that's what I've seen.  I do have a couple of big ones on a chip burner locally that have run for years.

Ya, I'm not taking any chances. I will be sticking with the real Grundfos 26-99, I've heard people say they get a long service time from this brand of pump.

That's for sure...especially if we try to bring something in from the US. The duty and brokerage fees are insane. I am real leary on buying anything from ebay because of it, I have bought before and a $100 item quickly turns into a $200 - $250 item real quickly. Although it depends a lot on the courier the seller uses, some are worse than others for their brokerage fees. If I can find it within the province for not a bad price, then I usually lean toward that..
