Remember Econ-101 from back in your freshman days? All those cool new economics terms, supply & demand, elasticity,commodities, Keynesian theory? Well, we would like to apply them to the irrigation industry and explain to you why there has never been a better time to purchase an automatic lawn sprinkler system for your home. After we’re finished, we think you’ll agree that you really cannot afford to “not” buy one!
Let us take a step back in time… the year is 2005. The U.S. economy is churning away at a break neck pace. The Wall Street financial collapse had never crossed anyone’s mind. Consumers had lots of disposable income and were buying all sorts of products large and small, including lots and lots of sprinkler systems. Demand was high, supply was low… Rainbird could charge a premium for their lawn sprinkler heads and nobody would bat an eyebrow.
Now add to the mix Hurricane Katrina and the devastation to all the oil drilling platforms and oil refineries in the Gulf of Mexico. Gasoline prices shot thru the roof and approached $5.00 per gallon. It seemed like the cost of everything was hyper-inflating, including the cost of sprinkler parts. You may or may not know this but the bulk of sprinkler parts are made from plastics(polyvinylchloride, polybutylene, etc…) which happen to be manufactured from petroleum byproducts. Do you see where we are going with this? That’s right, there is a direct correlation between the cost of our sprinkler parts and the cost of oil.
Scroll forward to today and it’s a totally different world my friends. The price of gasoline has stabilized to approximately $3.00 per gallon. Gone is the consumer with an endless supply of disposable income. The supply of sprinkler parts is high, the demand for sprinkler systems is low. New homes construction is down. The cost of everything has bottomed out. It truly is a buyers market. Homes, automobiles, and yes , even automatic lawn sprinkler systems, all are at rock bottom prices.
