Water heaters and pvc pipes are next
Went to get paint at a local hardware store and they said that suppliers are, as everything else, having a hard time keeping up with demand. They can’t keep most paints in stock.

He went on to say that price of pvc pipe is about to go crazy and also that water heater availability is slowing down.

Just thought I’d share — your area I guess could be different but who knows.

Edited for the hardasses

I'm hearing cold water heaters will still be in supply through the end of the year at least.

This has been an issue well before now.

We got lucky to get our replacement water heater back in January as quickly as we did. I’ve had friends dealing with a shortage for a few weeks now.

Didn't even know there was a market to make hot water hotter.

You can definitely heat hot water as "hot" is a relative term

What is the difference between a water heater and a hot water heater?

Your guy is about a year behind baw. PVC pipe went crazy after hurricane Laura took down Westlake Vinyls and hasn’t recovered resulting in an ongoing worldwide shortage of PVC resins. In my industry (electrical) we have been dealing with shortages and ridiculous lead times on PVC pipe and fittings, plastic switch boxes and most recently romex wire (the insulated jacket uses PVC resins).

Wasn't the chip shortage starting even before lockdown? I think silicone prices started skyrocketing around late 2019.
