Terms and Conditions

 

Please read through these Conditions of Sale carefully as they form the agreement under which we will supply products and services to you.

It’s important to note that in our quest to offer the best pool equipment many of the brands from whom we source our products operate under trade agreements. This basically means we are an agent for their brand, an arrangement whereby – technically – you are transacting with the brand even though you are dealing through us. This may apply to certain products from brands such as:

Astral Pool, Zodiac, Pentair, Onga, Magnor, Pool Pro.

When buying products from these manufacturers, you will be subject to their terms and conditions, which will prevail over these Conditions of Sale if there is any inconsistency.

 

Order and Availability

When you have ordered a product from us by paying for the product in full, a binding agreement will come into existence between you and us. Only these Conditions of Sale will apply in relation to the supply of the product. Orders for a product will not be placed or dispatched until you have paid for the product in full.

Orders changed or cancelled may incur a restocking fee if they have been custom ordered in at your request. This will be the decision of management depending on the product and time frame.

All stock availability as represented by our sales team is accurate in accordance with our current stock levels. However, if, for any reason, we cannot supply a product you have ordered, we will let you know using the details provided by you to amend, cancel or delay pick up time until stock arrives as agreed with you. If you choose to delay your order, we will contact you to arrange for pick up once the product is available.

In the event of a model or range change by a manufacturer we will endeavour to notify you as soon as possible and attempt to secure the product or offer the best alternative to equal or greater value.
