Well, in fact, being a very large company makes it more difficult to take on products from smaller companies that are not inside the group of large manufacturers like Central Aquatics or UPG. For example, a lot of these smaller manufacturers we have considered do not have a reliable warranty service for their products. More concerning than that, many of the smaller manufacturers do not have the necessary safety ratings on their products. We can not legally sell any product that doesn't have proper safety ratings.

Like I was saying, we are doing our best to expand our high tech plant product roster. It will take some time, but we refuse to bring in anything that we do not feel is reliable and safe.
