Please return the goods, carefully re-packaged preferably in the original packaging so as to avoid damage, and enclose a note containing the original sale invoice/reference number. Upon the safe return of the goods a refund of the net price paid (excludes the original P+P charges) will be issued. You are responsible for the costs of returning the goods. If the goods are not re-packaged carefully and are damaged whilst being returned, any refund from us may be reduced or invalidated. Please note that once goods have been fitted or used they are not eligible for returning as they can no longer be deemed 'as new'.
2.1.2. FAULTY GOODS:
If, in the unfortunate event, you receive faulty of damaged goods, please notify us immediately by telephone or by email. Our policy is to firstly replace the broken or defective part(s) of the goods. If this is not possible, we will replace the goods themselves with equivalent ones, or if they are not available, we will either offer similar goods or a refund. Your co-operation in returning the damaged or defective goods (or parts) to us at the above address, if required, is appreciated. Provided you obtain our prior agreement, we will reimburse any reasonable postage costs incurred by you in this event.

Please return any goods promptly to the above address. Please return them with the original packaging with a note containing the original sale invoice/reference number, and details of the reason(s) for the return. Please also advise us whether you wish to have a replacement or refund. If you want a replacement, and it is out of stock or has been discontinued, we will contact you to see whether you want an alternative similar item or a refund. Any refund will be for the amount you paid, less any original carriage charges or costs of postage.
The costs of returning any faulty goods are yours. Please note that only items properly reported within 14 days of receipt qualify for a refund or replacement.
3. MANUFACTURERS GUARANTEE & LIABILITY

Where a defective item is received, please contact us immediately by telephone or in writing (registered letter or email). We can then decide on the best course of action in order to remedy the situation with you.
If requested, please arrange to return the goods to the above address for evaluation. If the defect is covered by the guarantee (and there has been no abuse, misuse, neglect or damage caused by the installation or operation of the goods), then a replacement product only will be despatched. Refunds are not available in this instance.
If the defect or fault is attributed to some form of abuse, misuse, neglect or damage caused by the installation or operation of the goods whilst in your possession, incompatibility with a low pressure system, water contamination issue (e.g. lime scale from hard water), then no warranty replacement is applicable or will be supplied. We will attempt to contact you to see if you wish to have the item repaired (at your expense), purchase a new one, or scrap the goods.
