Terms and Conditions

Returns Policy

If you are unhappy with a purchase which is not faulty, you may return it to Aquahot within 14 days of the date of receipt in its original condition to obtain a full refund of the price paid. You would be responsible for returning the goods to Aquahot in good condition or alternatively for any costs incurred by Aquahot in collecting goods. IMPORTANT NOTE -- Goods returned for refund in accordance with this policy should be in good, resellable condition. Aquahot reserves the right to make a reasonable deduction against the refunded amount in the event that goods are returned in an unsatisfactory condition, for example if packaging has been discarded or the product shows signs of wear and tear or damage or if the product is liable to a supplier re-stocking charge.

Faulty Products

If you are unfortunate enough to experience a problem with your product you must contact Aquahot on 01751 411965 or by email info@aquahot.co.uk before taking other any other action. This is for a practical reason as experience has shown that issues can often be resolved without the need to return or un-install the product. If, after contacting Aquahot, you do need to return an item because it is faulty, Aquahot will, at its discretion, either repair the goods or exchange the goods or provide a refund of the full price paid. Aquahot will also refund all additional carriage charges relating to the delivery and return of the faulty item. Incorrect Items Dispatched If the wrong item is dispatched due to an error on the part of Aquahot, we will replace the item and provide a full refund of all additional carriage charges relating to both the delivery and return of the incorrect item.

Damaged Items or Shortages

Claims relating to damage or shortage on delivery must be made in writing (email or fax are acceptable) within 5 days of delivery.

Consequential Losses

We regret that we cannot be held responsible for any consequential or indirect losses (economic or loss of profits or otherwise). In particular, Aquahot strongly advises you not to book trademen to carry out installation of products in advance of delivery, and cannot be held responsible for any costs arising from, but not limited to, such a scenario.

Delivery

Delivery is typically next day for smaller items and 2-3 days for larger items that have to be delivered on a pallet. Orders are normally completed within one week of placing an order. Any delivery dates specified by the Company for delivery of the Goods are intended to be an estimate only. The Company shall not be liable for any loss, whether direct or consequential, arising directly or indirectly out of any delay in the delivery of the Goods.

Price

The price for the Goods shall, unless otherwise agreed, be the price displayed on the web-site and be exclusive of VAT and carriage (where applicable)

Export Restrictions

If a product bought in the UK is subsequently exported outside the UK by the buyer, this would be entirely at the risk of the buyer and Aquahot would not be liable for any costs, whether direct or consequential, arising either directly or indirectly from the product having been so exported. In particular the buyer should be aware that UK manufacturer's product warranties are normally only valid in the UK. If a product fails whilst under warranty outside the UK then Aquahot would not be liable for any costs or risks associated with returning the product to the UK or with subsequently re-exporting the product.
