Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01  Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Pool Corporation (the Company, we, us or our) is the world’s largest wholesale distributor of swimming pool supplies, equipment and related leisure products and a distributor of irrigation products in the United States. We offer our customers more than 180,000 products, including manufacturer brands, as well as our own proprietary-branded products. Since we operate as a distributor, the majority of products that we sell are made to manufacturers’ specifications and sold under the manufacturers’ brand names. We also contract with certain vendors and manufacturers to supply or produce our branded products, which generally consists of affixing our trademark or label to a generic product. With respect to these products, we may exert varying degrees of involvement in the design process, but in most cases we have no influence over the manufacturing process.
We conducted an extensive review of all of our branded products manufactured in 2017. All vendors from whom we source our branded products were asked to complete our internally developed questionnaire to identify any products that may contain the minerals within the scope of the legislation, namely: Columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, or their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin, and tungsten. For our reasonable country of origin inquiry, the questionnaire also sought the name of the country of origin for any of these minerals so identified.
In compiling the responses, we noted that, as in prior years, certain products we contracted to be manufactured in 2017 under our brands contain trace amounts of some of the minerals defined above. As described by the applicable manufacturers, these minerals are necessary to the production of the products in order to achieve desired objectives or aesthetic finishes. For the products so identified, the manufacturers disclosed that the minerals were not sourced from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
Based on our vendor inquiry procedures, we have no reason to believe that the products we contracted to be manufactured in 2017 contain any minerals defined above that may have originated in the DRC or an adjoining country.

A copy of this Form SD is publicly available on our website at under the headings Investors - SEC Filings.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the duly authorized undersigned.
