Pentair has a trained team of TradeGrade experts and third-party resources that will be scouring the internet 24/7 for TradeGrade violations. Our guarantee to you is that we will use all resources at our disposal to actively monitor and enforce this policy.

If a TradeGrade product is sold online, the warranty will be limited to a 60-day limited warranty. Pentair will not be liable for any costs or expenses related to an extended warranty provided to a customer beyond the 60-day limited warranty that Pentair provides for such sales. Additionally, no PIP dollars will be rewarded to the dealer for the purchase.

When a TradeGrade product is purchased and sold in compliance with the TradeGrade policy, that product will receive the full product warranty.
