Pentair Warranty Obligations
Should a defect in workmanship and/or materials in Products or Parts arise during the applicable warranty period, then upon Buyer’s compliance with the procedures below, Pentair will, at its sole option, repair or replace such Product or Part, or issue a credit of equal value, in lieu of repair. Any replacement product shall be warranted only for the remainder of the original product warranty only and shall not extend the original warranty period.

However, Pentair is not responsible under this warranty for any cost of shipping or transportation of the Product or Parts thereof to or from its facility. Also, Pentair is not liable for any loss of time, inconvenience, incidental expenses such as telephone calls, labor, travel or material charges incurred in connection with the removal or replacement of the Product or Part. PENTAIR SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO ANY PERSON FOR PUNITIVE, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONTINGENT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY DESCRIPTION OR LOSS OF USE, REVENUE OR PROFITS, WHETHER ARISING OUT OF WARRANTY OR OTHER CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHER TORT, OR OTHERWISE. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to Buyer.

No Other Warranties
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, PENTAIR DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WITH REGARD TO THE PRODUCT(S), PART(S) AND/OR ANY ACCOMPANYING WRITTEN MATERIALS.

Unauthorized returns will not be accepted.
