Warranty Returns & Terms of Service


Our water softeners, neutralizers, iron filters, sediment filters, and other backwashing systems come with a 10-year warranty on the tanks and a 5 Year Warranty on the control valve.

Other systems and components come with varying lengths of warranty from the manufacturer. Warranty coverage extends to defective parts, not to normal wear and tear. For example, if the well failed and sand was pumped through the control valve and the piston needed to be replaced, or the seals changed, that is not considered a defective valve by the manufacturer.
